Engraving Process: Custom Item
New images that we don’t have in stock cost $10 each to convert to a file that we can print. Please send high-resolution (clear) or vector images if possible. We have most of the Hawaii military images (all branches), but if the source of your image (your company or unit) is newer, farther away, or lesser known, we may not have it in our files. We will let you know during the proofing process if you will be charged for new images. We reserve the right to refuse and refund any new images.
Please do not send smartphone photographs of cloth badges or coins to be used as a printed logo. Send images as graphic files only (JPEG, PDG, SVG, PNG)
We can inlay your coin onto your custom item. Either drop off coins at the engraving shop in Aiea or mail them to the address Makemake Makana LLC, 99 920 Iwaena st, unit 102, Aiea Hi 96701. Coin inlay are an extra $10 for round coins and $15 t0 $20 if your coin is larger than 3” in diameter, or an irregular shape (not round)
If you have any special requests, be sure to include them in the description with your order. Always put your order number on the subject heading.
