For cutting and vector engraving we require the art to be supplied in vector files. Vector files can be created in paid softwares such as AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw, or in free software such as Inkscape.
Our preferred file formats for laser cutting/vector engraving are:
We are happy to try to convert other file formats for you, this might attract a fee depending on the complexity of the file.
We use a colour-coded system for dealing with cuts, vector engraving and raster engraving. We request that you please format your files accordingly as below:
RED lines for cuts
BLUE lines for vector engrave
BLACK lines for raster engrave
Please note that we have a maximum cutting area of 500mm x 700mm and your art must fit within this size limit with a minimum 5mm border around the edges.
