Our company maintains a large database of thousands of standardized company logos and artwork files. In some cases we may already have your logo on file in the format we need.
Alterations are sometimes necessary to make a logo appear clean and legible when processed. Failing to make these minor changes will result in a poor quality engraving that does not meet Expressions Engraved’s quality standards. These moderate but necessary alterations will be done as part of our FREE set-up service.
If your layout contains copy, please let us know if you have a font preference.
We provide two free proofs in our award pricing. There is an additional charge of $10 per proof after that.
