Preferred Image Formats for Laser Engraving:

The success of a laser engraving project begins with the proper image format. Here are our recommended designs: (free image editor) (free vector designs)

Vector Formats:

  • .SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics): Ideal for logos and designs that need to be scaled without losing quality.
  • .AI (Adobe Illustrator): A popular vector graphics format.
  • .EPS: Widely used for high-resolution graphics.
  • Bitmap/Raster Formats:
  • .BMP: Offers a raw, uncompressed format ideal for engraving.
  • .PNG: Useful for images with transparent backgrounds.
  • .JPG or .JPEG: Common for photos but ensure high resolution.

Note: While we can work with multiple image formats, vector images are preferred because they maintain clarity and sharpness at any size.

Image Quality & Resolution:

The clarity of your engraving is directly linked to the quality and resolution of the original image. Here are some guidelines:

  • High Resolution: For raster images like .JPG or .PNG, a minimum of 333 DPI (dots per inch) is recommended.
  • Clear Contrasts: Images with clear contrasts between the foreground and background work best for engraving.
  • Avoid Low-Quality Images: Grainy or pixelated images will not be engraved cleanly. If you need more clarification on the quality of your image, reach out to us!
