Designing a Woggle - Tips
Designing a woggle to be laser engraved onto leather, isn’t very difficult, but to help you along here are a few tips.
If you aren’t very good at design, don’t worry, you could always use our online Woggle Designer. We can also design a woggle for you, more details here.
On our standard woggle, the engraved area is 34mm in diameter, not a massive area to get your design onto.
Try and fill the available space, but don’t make your design very crowded or too complicated.
A design with lots of small detail might get lost, and the design may not look great when burnt into the leather with the laser.
When it comes to text, capitals are often easier to read and stand out more than lowercase.
Don’t use over fancy fonts for your text, it makes it so much harder to read.
Any graphics need to be black and white, that’s two colours (black and white), if you send in a design made up of different colours or even different shades of grey it probably won’t be useable.
Bold graphics work better than graphics with lots of fine lines, have a look at some of the logos available with our online Woggle Designer, they are all pretty bold images.
Choose your leather colour carefully. Remember, the laser is burning the design into the leather and this will leave a dark brown or black mark. The lighter the leather colour, the more your design will stand out. Have a look at our leather page which gives information on the different coloured leathers.
If you are unsure whether your design will work, email it to us firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will let you know.
