Work Art Requirements & guidelines

for submitting your artwork and everything else involved with artwork in our ordering processes- We understand that the preparation of the design process can be often technical and sometimes even frustrating. To make this process nice and smooth for everyone, please read carefully the following instructions.

Art file formats accepted

We accept logos and badge designs in almost any format, however if the badge has been designed using a vector based program it is always best to prevent rasterising the design. As such, our preferred file formats are listed below.

What type of image format can you upload onto your badge when designing a badge on-line?

  • PNG(Extention: .png) 1MB max (recommended )
  • GIF(Extension: .gif) - 1 MB max
  • TIFF(Extention: .tif) - 1 MB Max
  • JPEG/JPG (Extention: .jpeg) 1 MB max

In addition, You can upload a HIGH QUALITY ARTWORK (please remember to mention it as a comment while placing your order).

  • PDF™(Extention: .pdf): Portable Document Format
  • AI ™ (Extention: .ai): Adobe Illustrator™
  • EPS(Extention: .eps) - Encapsulated PostScript Graphics Format
  • CDR (Extention: .cdr): CorelDraw™
  • DXF (Extention: .dxf): AutoCAD DXF™ (Drawing Interchange Format)

Important Note:

If your artwork/logo requires clean-up/conversion or further enhancement then Engraving Services Co.will, at the customers approval, charge a design fee of $65AUD (excluding GST) per hour. The time frame of delivery might increase depending on the work required to finalise the artwork prior to production.

Name list

You can supply a list of names from Microsoft Excel, to ensure that your data is laid out in the correct.

You can then submit this template in your account file as mentioned above, or attach it to your order online.

Please Note: When you place your order online, please remember to update the quantity in the shopping cart according to the amount of name/s in the XLS uploaded.


We have a vast library of thousands of fonts on our system. But you might want to check with us when submitting your order if your design uses a rare or obscure font. If it is not subject to any licensing then why not attach the font with your artwork and we will add it to our collection.

If you supply us with a particular font and point size we can replicate this. however, make sure that when you design your own badge it is created actual size (within our cut line templates); otherwise point sizes will be meaningless.
