We do not usually have set up fees. For simple text or provided artwork, no set up fee is required. If there is artwork that will need to be created or edited, it will require a set up charge. If an art charge is applicable, it is typically minimal and is to cover the cost and time of editing or recreating a graphic (For example, an image of the graphic desired or a low-resolution graphic or artwork). For graphic based engraving, the file types we use are vector files in the file formats of .ai, .eps, . svg, .cdr, .pdf, .psd. If you have a high-resolution image of the artwork, it usually gets converted to a vector easily. All of our machines work in black and white as well as gray-scale for engraving purposes.
