    Tips!


    Design It!

    1. Know your options.

    Upload a photo of your own (use any jpeg, gif, or png file) under 10MB or choose an image from the Zippo Image Library. Add text and/or shapes too! Use multiple images and layers to create a truly unique customized design.

    2. Use the whole surface area.

    You have the full face of the lighter to use, so be creative!  Extend your photo or image to fill the whole space, or leave room for text. Add spaces to create an interesting geometric design.  Remember that you can put text directly over in image and shapes as well. Have fun with the design and make something that is unique!

    3. Don't forget that the lighter opens.

    Images look great when they cover the entire surface, but pay attention to the placement. On the preview image, there is a hinge and marks to signal where the lighter will open. Be sure that you like the placement before you complete your order, because we cannot manipulate the image position once we receive your order. 

    4. Use the Zippo Image Library.

    Choose from many backgrounds and elements that can be manipulated together to create a special lighter. Use our library images along with your own photos and shapes to add more creativity to your design!

    5. Review your finished product.

    Be sure to make any design changes before you place your order. We are unable to alter your image in anyway once we receive your order. Once the order is placed, the order cannot be canceled. And customized lighters are not eligible for return or refund.

    6. Keep in mind the size of the lighter.

    If your text is too small, it may be very hard to read. If you're having trouble reading it in the "preview," you should consider revising your design. Try getting your message across using a combination of text and images.

    Engrave It!


    1. Choose the right message.

    Keep in mind there is limited space for each surface of the product. The more letters and words you use, the smaller the font will appear. Make every word count!

    2. Use all the engravable space.

    You have up to four areas that can be engraved. You can engrave the lid and case of the front and back of most lighters.  However, some lighters do have special engraving areas. When you use all available surfaces, you have the chance to communicate a truly unique and meaningful message.

    3. Review your finished product.

    Be sure to make any design changes before you place your order. We are unable to alter your image in anyway once we receive your order. Once the order is placed, the order cannot be canceled. And customized lighters are not eligible for return or refund.

    4. Don't forget the guidelines.

    Profanity, offensive remarks, or references to drugs, violence, or anything else in poor taste will not be accepted.
