When you provide us with cut ready vector artwork, we can provide you with an instant quote.
You can send in picture format (.jpg or .png) with high resolution and we can scan the image. Similar pictures can be found on Google by searching for, “vector artwork” or “cow silhouette.” (Black on white images)
We also accept .DXF format or .SVG and .PDF
We use a collection of processes for different types of applications. We use a hi-definition plasma system for cutting artwork above 6″ in size and laser for fine, smaller details. (For example, pendants and key chains)
Our designer can use just about any format available however, it must meet the following design criteria to be cut:
- No floating pieces that will fall away
- No features thinner than the material being cut (example 1/8″ min. thick line work in 1/8″ plate)
- No cut lines thinner than the material being cut (example min. 1/8″ slots thickness in 1/8″ plate)
- No holes smaller than the material being cut (example min. 1/8″ diameter holes in 1/8″ plate)
If the artwork is unusable, the designer will make suggestions for you at no cost.
Our talented team can also create custom vector artwork from scratch and handle the entire process for you. You can simply provide us with with your vision and design constraints such as size or budget. To do so we require a design fee up front which gives you dedicated time with one of our designers who can provide you with consultation and options before quoting and cutting the final piece from metal.
