BackAbout Engraving - It's Free!

One of the many advantages to buying awards online through 123-Awards.com is the cost savings you enjoy. Not only do we have low prices on our quality products, but we offer free engraving as well.

While most shops charge you for engraving on a per character basis plus an additional charge for logos, 123-Awards.com offers you both engraving and logo setup for free.

However, be aware that we might restrict the number of free proofs of your order. Please make a point of having your engraving information and artwork ready to go. We do not offer design services as part of the free engraving. Our policy is to not charge for changes based on the first proof produced. If you want to make additional changes in design and content that are not because of errors created by our production staff or process, then we reserve the right to charge a per-proof fee of $10 per proof.

Promotional Items -- Please note that because of the nature of the promotional items business we are not able to waive all engraving and setup fees for these products.

What You Will Need

If you do not already have the names of the people who will be receiving the awards, this would be a good time to get them. You may also want to think about what it is you would like the award to say (although we will be supplying you with classic wording samples to choose from).If a company logo or other graphic is to appear on the award, you should have this Zipped or Stuffed on your computer ready to upload to our site. Please do not send scanned text.

Graphic Requirements

Engraving is different from most other printing processes. Where your home or work printer may print in shades of grey or in color, the engraving process works primarily in black-and-white. Please check with your art department for advice on how to produce artwork to the requirements below.

  • Vector-based file with no embedded raster (bitmap) images. PC or Macintosh. Fonts should be converted to outlines or included with the order.
  • Raster (bitmap) file(s) should be at least 300 dpi at the size you wish it to print at
  • File(s) should be Zipped or Stuffed

Please do not send us a scanned document or picture.

The Process

Once you click on the Checkout button in your shopping cart, you will be taken through the signup/login process. After logging in you will go to the Checkout page. Once your order has been processed, we will capture your engraving information.

Your engraving information can either be emailed to us, or you can upload your logo to our site then enter your engraving directly.

Please Note: If your logo fails to meet the Graphic Requirements outlined above, we will take a quick look at it and decide how much work it will take to turn it into a usable graphic. If it is simple, we will convert it for you. However, if it is determined that the graphic requires substantial work, we will contact you directly. Under these circumstances we may require a fee for reworking your graphic. The cost for this ranges from $25 to $100.
