To make a request for a symbol, please follow these guidelines:
1) Please start a new topic for each new set of symbol requests.
2) Make sure the symbol is appropriate to the scientific focus of our libraries.
3) Please attach a photo(s) or drawing(s) showing what you would like the symbol made from.
4) Include a detailed description, including the common name and full scientific name if appropriate.
5) We will post created symbols back in this forum, so be sure to use the 'Notify me of replies' option when posting your request.
Please keep in mind that the main purpose of the "Symbol Creation Service" forum is to solicit suggestions to expand the IAN Symbol Libraries for the benefit of all users. Unfortunately, we cannot support it as a free graphic design service. As such, requests will be handled, without cost, but as time permits. However, if you have a specific deadline and/or require a large number of symbols, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can give you a quote to meet your objectives.
