  • For Illustrator files and SVGs:

– All text must be converted to outlines to avoid missing fonts

– The board outline template must be on a separate layer labeled “Board Outline”

Topsheets are available in carbonium or gloss texture
Photographic or illustrative artwork is fine
Unfortunately we cannot do Metallic or dayglow colors

Base Graphics Tips

Think of die cutting like a coloring book – only distinct regions of color are possible we stock black, white, red, yellow, and blue base material, you must work only in these colors you are limited to 15 inlayed pieces/parts

Printed base graphics tend to be a bit blurry so avoid fine lines.
