Hints for Achieving the Best Looking End Product
- Be sure to proof your coin artwork at actual coin size. Things look very different when you shrink them down and engrave the coin. If you can read a word in print, you can read it on a coin.
- Please review all artwork carefully. Changes made after a die is started may require engraving a complete new die at the customer’s expense.
- For busts (portraits) and detailed scenes (landscape, bridges, buildings etc) our engravers require line art as well as a photograph for reference.
- Half tones and shading cannot be reproduced on a custom engraved coin and should be eliminated.
