If possible, have the recipe written on plain white paper with a dark-colored pen or marker. The more contrast between the writing and background, the better the engraving will show up. Then scan the recipe and save it as a JPEG.

Then, go to If you’re starting from the homepage, go to Custom Gifts > Engraved Cutting Boards.

Look for the Upload Your Own Design option, and hit the Customize button.

Hit Customize again.

Go to the graphics tab, click "ADD NEW GRAPHIC," and browse for your recipe file wherever you have it saved.

Your image will automatically upload in black and white. You can move the image around, as well as adjust the size by clicking and dragging the blue squares.

To adjust your graphic's level of darkness, click "Edit Effects." Slide the “Threshold Value” down to make the image darker and up to make the image lighter.

If you have another graphic to add, click "ADD NEW GRAPHIC," and do the process over again.

When you're happy with your design, click "Add To Cart," and complete the checkout process. It's that easy!
