I made some tokens in appreciation for fellow employees that have joined me on a game night this year, and I’m not getting quite the results I’d like. I was using SD Graphic, and that might be my main issue. I started with HD Graphic, and I thought it was engraving way too deep, so I switched to SD (thinking this was analogous to the Graphic (Expiring Soon!) vs Dark Graphic (Expiring Soon, also!). My bad, but even with HD, it seemed like the engraving was VERY deep. As far as the depth, I might just switch to manual and reduce the power, but even with HD, I was losing the little loop in the lower case E in some areas (the second “e” in Discere is particularly “c” shaped). Is my design just too small (scaled down to approx 1.5 inch diameter)? The photo isn’t ideal, but hopefully gets the point across. I have a scanner coming in (by 8pm today!) if higher resolution would aid. I guess this is more of a design question. I think that the thickness of some of these font objects is approaching the width of a human hair, but we’re supposed to be “less than that”, right?
EDIT: Well, the SVG doesn’t quite look like it does when I work with it… am I attaching it wrong? (feeling like more and more of a noob, compared to my earlier “I’m learning Illustrator!!!” exultation… )
