What Can I Bring In?

Laser engraving is particularly suited for wood items.  In some cases, glass, acrylic and some coated metal items look great engraved. Leather can engrave nicely but all hides differ so it's best if you bring in a sample to test before engraving. See our list below of things that may be engraved at Make and don't hesitate to check with our imaging specialists to see if your object is suitable:

  • Flat wood, leather, acrylic, anodized aluminium or glass objects and rocks
  • Glasses and anodized aluminum mugs
  • Newer ipods and ipads
  • Objects that are smaller than 24"x12"x6" and not made of metal

 

 

Pricing for Our Items

 

Pricing for Your Item


Are there additional Fees?

There is five minutes of set up time and one proof included in the engraving prices above. Charges may apply for changes requested after the first proof, starting at $10. If there is additional complexity to either the artwork or the item, we will quote.

How do I know what the engraving will look like on an item I bring in?

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. Also, as we still have to go through the entire process of set-up and engraving the item we do not re-imburse for the actual 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.

Are there placement restrictions?

All engraving must sit .5 inches from any edge or seam.

Can I bring my own artwork?

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) for engraving. We can vectorize high quality, high contrast images (.jpeg, .png) in store but this may result in a loss of detail.
*Please note: we do not print 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.

What is your turnaround time?

We can do same-day turnaround for appropriately sized projects for customers shopping in-store only. For over the phone and e-mail orders, we generally require 2-3 days. And the great news is, we are open 7 days a week!
