Q: We have a three-color logo, will it be suitable for laser engraving?
A: Since engraving is essentially a line art or two-color process, a three-color logo by definition won't work. There is always a way to make a logo like this into an engraving. Please view the catalog images to see how others have dealt with this situation, and contact your designer. We can also assist you with this.
