  guidelines for your artwork:

 
  • Your image must be High Contrast Black and White.  Thermal imagers don't recognize grey, and sometimes drop those bits.    We can convert it for you if needed; small charge may apply.
     
  •  Use pretty much any image format(tif, jpg, png, psd,bmp) but please make them high quality.
     
  • We prefer jpg or psd, greyscale, with a resolution of 300. (aka ,  medium high to high quality.)

      If the resolution is too low, you will not be pleased with the print quality.   On the computer screen, 72 dpi is common and  looks great.  On paper, hmm, well,  not so much. Your screen & prints will have fuzzy / blurry edges.   We recommend printing a test copy on good white paper and check it under magnification. 2x reading glasses are good.  This way you can see if the black is really black, and how smooth the line is.
  •   * If you would like wa-a-a- y  more information on this topic, you'll find it here
    @  Photoshop Essentials:   Image Quality and Resolution .
  • Please send your image >full size, ready to print out.
     Please email the image at the actual size ready for us to download/printout.    If you send us an image that thinks it's 18" x 24" it won't print out to 6" x 8" by itself . We can convert it for you if you don't know how.
 
Please Note ~
LARGE SOLID AREAS IN DESIGN are difficult to burn cleanly. If you are an experienced printmaker, you will know what kind of leeway you have.    If you are not sure, please add texture to any large solid areas.
