Company logos - We can engrave logos if they are 1 color and you have permission to replicate the logo. We may require a letter stating you have permission and we reserve the right to refuse to replicate any logo we feel might be in question of a copyright violation.
Fraternity, College, University - Fraternities and Universities are businesses and therefore are treated the same as company logos and require a permission letter from the logo owner. In addition, some have a licensing fee which the customer is responsible for paying directly to the logo owner.
Professional Teams - There are licensing requirements for all of the professional teams, we DO NOT engrave any NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, or any other professional league logos unless requested from the headquarters of the league or unless the customer obtains written permission from the league.
Famous Characters - These are also licensed and we DO NOT engrave them. These include any well known cartoon or movie characters or names.
