Unfortunately, we cannot predict how engraving may turn out on any items that we do not sell here at MAKE so therefore we cannot guarantee any outcomes at all when engraving onto customer’s items. Because of this, we do not replace or reimburse for any items brought in where the engraving does not satisfy in any way. We also do not reimburse for the actual engraving service even if the outcome is not satisfactory.

We highly recommend buying the items we sell in the store for engraving as these have all been tested.

 

All engraving must sit 0.25 inches from any edge or other element. The surface must be relatively flat with nothing sticking up over 0.25 inches from the surface.

 

Yes, you can bring your artwork with you on a USB drive to the shop, or you can e-mail it to us ahead of time. Please note that we need vector artwork (.ai, .eps, .cdr) in black and white for engraving. We can vectorize high quality, high contrast images (.jpeg, .png) in store but this may result in a loss of detail. We usually do not recommend engraving photographs, especially of people or pets.

Please note: we do not engrave copyright protected images or artwork without the permission of the creator. We do require you to affirm that you have the right to use any of the images you supply to us to reproduce.

 

We can often do 1-2 day turn around, and even sometimes same day if you specify this when booking your appointment. If you are hoping for a same-day turnaround, please call ahead to check our current turnaround timing. Thanks!
For e-mail orders, we generally require 2-3 days. And the great news is, we are open 7 days a week!
