What type of images are best for engraving?
 When it comes to quality, the quality of the image greatly determines the quality of the engraving. Most images are acceptable for engraving, some are not. The ones that are not usually have certain characteristics about them such as very faded, very low detail or the subject has a shadow over it. Usually the higher the detail and the better the contrast the better the results. Some images just need a minor adjustment and we provide this service free with each order.
 When it comes to image size, the larger the image the better. With that said, its better to not resize the image before either uploading or emailing any image file. We accept almost any image file but we recommend JPG, JPEG, PSD, PNG, BMP, and TIFF file formats.

What is the best way to scan my image in for engraving?
 Although we accept almost all forms of image files, if your scanning your image we  recommend scanning it at 300 DPI on a Grayscale setting. Some diplomas and certificates are to large to scan all at once. We recommend scanning documents like these in two parts and overlapping the scan. If you are uploading more than one image, upload them one at a time.

How can I clean my marble photo, marble diploma and granite engravings?
 The best method of cleaning engraved marble and granite is with a dry cloth. If necessary use a damp cloth to remove light stains and residue. Never use soap or detergent to clean marble as it can stain the surface. If the piece is to be placed outside calcium deposits can build up and discolor the engraving, it's recommended to lightly wipe the marble or granite periodically.

How can I clean my wood photo or wood diploma \ certificate?
 We have found that using furniture polish works well for cleaning and preserving  engraved wood. To clean using furniture polish spray a light amount onto a soft cloth and  lightly clean around the engraved area. Try not to spray directly on the piece as some  polish may get into the fine details.
