How To Prepare Vector Files For Logo Engraving

How To Prepare Vector Files For Logo Engraving

You’ve got a great logo, but now what? You could spend hours or even days trying to figure out how to make it look good on hats and hoodies. Or you could just skip all that and create a vector version of your logo first. In this post, I’ll show you exactly how—and also give you some tips for making sure your engraving comes out right every time.

What’s The Best Way To Get Started?

If you’re looking to get started, here are some of the most important things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your logo is a vector file. Vector files are scalable and can be easily manipulated without losing quality. They also look great when printed at high resolution (at least 300 dpi).
  • Make sure it’s black and white only (or monochrome). This will make things easier for us at Logos Unlimited because we’ll be able to use our engraving machine with little trouble!

Learn The Basics Before You Start

Vector components can be scaled to any size without losing quality, making them ideal for logos and other artwork that needs a consistent resolution across all platforms.

Create A Vector Version Of Your Logo First

The first step to creating a vector file of your logo is to create a vector version of it. Vector files are ideal for engraving because they are crisp and clean, making it easy to see the details that matter most.

Vector files can be scaled up or down in size as needed by simply changing the resolution of the image file. This means that you don’t have to worry about cutting off any portion of your artwork when you change its dimensions, and if someone ever wants to make changes later on down the line, they won’t affect how large or small they make things look!

Add Your Text

Now that you’ve got your logo and its vector file, it’s time to add text.

To keep things simple, I recommend using a font called Roboto Slab. When using Roboto Slab as your main typeface for logos and other projects like this one, keep in mind that the engraving will be small, so make sure not only that the text looks readable but also legible at any size; otherwise, people might not understand what they’re looking at! Finally, always write words in all caps to make them stand out against the background colour (in this case, blue).

Engrave It!

Now that you’ve created a vector file, it’s time to get your logo engraving done. There are two ways to do this: with a laser printer or an engraver.

A laser printer works just like an inkjet printer—except instead of using ink, it uses toner filled with powdered glass particles. The result is crisp text that doesn’t fade over time or smudge easily as regular ink does. In addition, laser printers produce higher-quality images than inkjet printers and allow you to print copies of your logo at any size without any additional setup!


Consider getting a custom laser-engraved product if you want to start a new business or rebrand an existing one. It’s a great way to promote your brand and build awareness with customers who see your logo everywhere they go!
