Q: Can you remove objects, scratches or a background from a photo?
A: Yes. However, depending on complexity, there may be an additional charge. For more information please email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and describe your requests in the body of your email. We will be happy to contact you regarding your editing needs before you place your order.
Q: Can you "crop" the photo to bring the featured object or person closer?
A: Yes. There is no additional charge for this. Another option is to crop the image in a photo and add feathered edges, it tends to add something "more."
Q: How long does the process take?
A: If you are visiting our store, the engraving can be done while you shop. Normal photo engraving takes, on average, 30 minutes (this can vary depending on complexity). If you are ordering directly from our website, we send all orders within three days of payment confirmation and ship most everything USPS Priority. Orders are generally received by our customers within 7-10 days.

Q: You mention Laser and Rotary Engraving, what is the difference?
A: Part One - Laser Engraving is the technology of engraving using a laser beam. It permanently engraves on materials such as Acrylic, Aluminum, Ceramics, Chrome, Copper, Glass, Hard Plastics, Leather, Marble, Pewter, Rubber, Stainless Steel, Wood and many others. All of these materials, with the exception of the metals, can (depending on thickness) be cut as well.
A: Part Two - Rotary Engraving is done using a Diamond Drag and literally cuts/scratches into the material. Brass, Silver, Gold, Pewter and some Stainless Steel are a few examples of materials engraved using a Rotary Engraver.
Q: How do I send my photo or logo?
A: Via "snail mail" - Remember that your photo will not be harmed in any way, we return your original photo to you as we received it. Via email - please send file as a high resolution (300dpi works fine) .jpg or .bmp. You may also upload your photo right directly to our website with the upload button on the order form.
