Tips for Customizing Products

Brewista now offers custom engraving on a variety of products for free or low cost with no set-up fees or minimum requirements!

To help keep your customized product experience as smooth as possible, here is a quick list of tips for setting up your files for engraving and uploading to our website with your order.

Preparing your file for engraving:

  • We can currently only accept SVG files through our website. 
    • Vector-based files result in the best-quality engraving in the fastest time allowing us to provide you with the best quality product.
    • Most vector-based graphics software (including Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, and Inkscape) can save files with the .svg extension. 
      • Simply open your file and choose "File > Save As" and select ".svg" from the file type before saving.
      • If you are unable to save your file as an SVG file yourself, try using this file converter site: https://convertio.co/vector-converter/ 
        EPS, DST, AI, CDR, EMF, PES, PS, WMF, PLT, CCX, AFF, and FIG files can be uploaded, converted to SVG files, and downloaded with a few clicks.  We recommend all text/fonts be outlined before using this tool to prevent any alterations of your logo (see next point).
    • If neither of the above options will work, please email your vector-based AI or EPS file to yourlogo@mybrewista.com and include your name, order number, and product(s) on which this logo should be engraved in the body of the email.
  • Please make sure all text/fonts are outlined or converted to paths.
    • Note: Outlined fonts cannot be edited like normal text.  Always keep a copy of your original artwork.
    • Outline fonts in Adobe Illustrator:
      • Unlock all text layers
      • Select all of the text (Mac: Cmd+A) (PC: Ctrl+A)
      • From the "Type" menu, select "Create Outlines" (Mac: Shift+Cmd+O) (PC: Shift+Ctl+O)
      • From the "File" Menu, select "Save As" and save your file as a new document
    • Outline fonts in CorelDRAW:
      • Unlock all text layers
      • Select all of the text (Mac: Cmd+A) (PC: Ctrl+A)
      • From the "Arrange" menu, select "Convert to Curves" (Mac: Cmd+Q) (PC: Ctrl+Q)
      • From the "File" Menu, select "Save As" and save your file as a new document
    • Outline fonts in Inkscape:
      • Unlock all text layers
      • Select all of the text (Mac: Cmd+A) (PC: Ctrl+A)
      • From the "Path" menu, select "Object to Path" (Mac: Shift+Cmd+C) (PC: Shift+Ctl+C)
      • From the "File" Menu, select "Save As" and save your file as a new document
  • Any colors previewed will appear grey - not full color.
    • Laser-engraving etches away and/or burns the top layer of the engraved material.  This process does not apply color to the engraved surface.  All colors in your uploaded SVG file will be a medium grey when engraved. See photos of actual etched products for reference.
    • For the best preview, change all colors in your file to greyscale or black before uploading.

When you're ready to upload your file:

We use a custom product previewer tool to help you understand what products would look like with your logo on them.  Once you have your file or files ready per the above instructions, move on to uploading your files!  Note to Wholesale Customers: You will need to email your vector-formatted SVG or AI files to laser@mybrewista.com instead of following the instructions below.
  1. Migrate to the customizable product on mybrewista.com that you would like to purchase.  Click the large orange "CUSTOMIZE" bar on the page of the product you would like custom engraved.
  2. If applicable, select the number of sides you'd like engraved.  Some products only have one location for engraving.
  3. Click on the placeholder image on the product.
  4. Then click on the "upload" icon in the top right and follow the instructions.
    • As stated earlier, we can only accept SVG files through the website at this time.
    • Your logo should appear centered in the preview area automatically.
  5. To add artwork to multiple sides, click on the other side's image in the lower left of the previewer and repeat steps 3 and 4 for this side.
  6. Review all details including price.
    • Please check and double check! We do not send electronic proofs for review.
  7. Click the "Add to Cart" button in the lower right of the previewer.
    • You should see a small image of your customized product in your cart.
  8. Proceed through the checkout process as usual. 
    • Remember that the lead time for custom-engraved products is 2-4 business days prior to shipment. This lead time could be a bit longer during busy times such as the November/December Holiday season. In order to estimate when you would receive your products, add 2-4 business days to the expected shipping transit time.
    • Any non-custom products will be shipped with the customized products. We typically don't split shipments of orders.

Note: Brewista reserves the right to use photographs of customized products in company marketing and promotional materials.
