The creation of wax seals begins with the digital template. In order to be able to engrave fine details, we need graphics that comply with the following guidelines:
- Your graphic must be created in a vector file format. This is simply because we may need to scale your artwork. A vector graphic allows this to be done easily without losing any details of your graphic. Our preferred file formats are .ai, .eps and .pdf. It doesn't matter what size you create your vector file, as we will ultimately scale it to the right one without any problems.
- Put all lines and areas in black. All black lines and areas are engraved. So if you want a detail of your motif to be completely engraved, color it in.
- If you would like to have a certain placement or orientation for your graphic on the sealing stamp, create a border line in red, which simulates the shape of the sealing stamp. As soon as the circle is red, it is automatically not engraved. However, circles in black are engraved.
- It is not necessary to mirror the motif, but if your graphic has already been mirrored, please do not forget to let us know. We automatically mirror all graphics.
You can use the following example to orient yourself with your graphic:
