File and Artwork Requirements

Possible file formats

Please send your artwork as PDF (version 1.3 or higher). We can not accept or handle other formats. The PDF format works best and will help to avoid problems.


All fonts must be converted to curves. This is an export option which should be available in your PDF-Printer or PDF-Export dialog box.
All letters and objects which should get engraved need to be defined as RGB black (0;0;0) otherwise the laser will interpret them as greyscale. 


Color model

The data needs to be delivered in the RGB color model.
Attention: All colors need to be converted to the RGB color model before creating the PDF. Black in the CMYK color model is NOT identical to black in the the RGB color model. This can lead to incorrect color reproduction, for example grey shadows in the fonts on the faceplate.
RGB black: 0,0,0
RGB white: 255,255,255

Cut lines

All lines with a thickness of less than 0.15 mm will be interpreted as cut lines for the laser. The color of the line is irrelevant. For a better overview it is recommend to draw the cut lines in red (RGB: 255:0:0).

Hint 1: If there is a line with a thickness less than 0.15 mm around an object which should be engraved the object will be cut out. Make absolutely sure that objects are not additionally surrounded by thin lines.

Hint 2: Please use hair lines if you are using Corel Draw.


The maximum resolution is 500 DPI. If required a resolution of 1000 DPI is possible, but only after  consultation. It is no problem if the data is delivered with a resolution less than 500 DPI.
