Locating Existing Art

There are many online sources of stock artwork online:

1 - Google Search - simply typing in the name/description of artwork you are looking for beginning with Stock Photo, such as Stock Photo Labrador Retriever, Stock Photo Jumping Horse, Stock Photo Whitetail Deer, etc. and see what you find. If you find a photo or illustration you like, just send us an email with the name of the website and the number/description of the photo or illustration and we will take it from there.

2- Go direct to one of the online sources of artwork. Some sources are:

https://stock.adobe.com

http://www.istockphoto.com/

http://www.shutterstock.com/

http://www.canstockphoto.com/

If you find a photo or illustration you like, just send us an email with the name of the website and the number/description of the photo or illustration and we will take it from there.

Converting Your Artwork to Engraving

Certain types of artwork can be digitally converted to a format that will yield excellent engraving results; other types need to be converted by hand. This is done by skilled artists employed by our engraver resulting in a high quality custom design.

Art formats that can be converted digitally include Vector and high-resolution tiff files. If you can provide your art in one of these formats, there will be no artwork cost.

Art formats that require conversion by hand include jpeg and scanned photos. Costs for converting artwork by hand obviously vary with the artwork but typically range in the $150.00-$225.00 range. It is important to note that the artists totally redraw the artwork so if your art needs are extensively detailed, it may be less expensive—and far more desirable--to have your artwork hand-engraved directly on the rifle. We will advise you if we believe this might be the best way to go.
