Different chemicals used in the production of plastics are harmful and flammable when burned. For this reason we may not be able to engrave certain items. Please contact us so that you can find out if engraving is right for you.

What kind of file can I send you?

Please send JPG, JPEG, PNG or PLT. Please no Zip Or Rar compressed files.
The higher the definition, the easier it is to work with. We are not graphic designers but we can work with your artwork and depending on the quality there may be additional charges and longer turn around times.

NO pictures of people.

Think in Black and white! Eventually, all graphics will be converted to black and white (no Gray) so avoid blurry images or images with a lot of shading or poor contrasting colors / features.

Lasers do not engrave in color, again think Black And White! We can recommend several Cerakote businesses in our area that can assist in giving you the final touches, please let us know ahead of time if this is something you are interested in.

Also be realistic about size. Something with a great deal of detail engraved on an area the size of a stamp will not render well.

Rule of thumb is, find that graphic on google, shrink it down on your screen to the size it will be, if it is hard to recognize there, it will be hard to recognize on the finished product.

If you have any further questions or want to send us an item for engraving, please contact us at info@midsouthlaserengraving.com or call at 901-859-0000
