Custom Etching Art

Custom Etching Art

Design Mart's studio can create a custom etching for just about anything you need. We'll go over specifications and options with you, so that we can get as close to what you are picturing as possible. Like sandblast designs, etching artwork will vary by job. We typically start by putting together a rough draft for you to look over, then we work out any revisions needed from there.

We can email your finished file in PSD, CPT, JPG, or TIF formats. For a free quote on custom etching artwork, please email us at .

In your email:

  • You will need to send us a high quality photo to work from. 
  • You will need to identify any items you want to add, then save and attach them to your email. 
  • You want to avoid saying, "It doesn't matter what kind of car, dog, etc." Usually after the family sees the finished job, it DOES matter, and we have to charge for any revisions and time we spend helping you find an image or purchase a stock one. 
  • We will also need to know the finished size of the etching. This will help us determine if your images can be used or not.

Proof, Payment, & Other Policies

Custom etching artwork is very time consuming work, which requires talent and attention to detail.

1. Often, several drafts and revisions are made as photos and other artwork are converted into workable images - resulting in an image which can be etched.

2. Individual images are refined and put together n a way that looks natural. The process is determined by the nature of the image submitted and the desired size of the etching work.

3. All the steps mentioned above are integral to the creation of a piece of artwork. If we generate a proof, we have already gone through each of the steps above. At that point several people have spent many hours (sometimes days) bringing an etching to a point where it is finished. So, a proof isn't possible. In order to show you or your customer what the work will look like, we actually have to do the work.

4. If revisions are required after an etching is completed, we will have to charge for our artists' time.

5. You may see samples of our work at the bottom of this page. We'll be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have. Please email or call 800-736-7455, and we'll be glad to help.

6. When ordering an original piece of artwork the digital file, paper or stencil is being purchased. While the purchaser owns that piece of artwork in its physical expression, the purchaser will not own the copyright associated with it. Because Design Mart is not an employee of the purchaser, the ownership remains with Design Mart, since the work was done by an artist as an employee of Design Mart. Under U.S. law 'work for hire' applies to the one (Design Mart) who hired the artist to create artwork. Design Mart is not considered an employee, and as such, the copyright remains with Design Mart. Design Mart may also copyright works as compilations. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

We look forward to working for you!
