Snowboard, ski and surfing wax
Custom Mold Process
Start by sending us your logo or artwork either as a jpg or pdf file and we can review the design and offer suggestion on how the design will best display itself. If you need us to do your graphic design artwork just let us know. Once you decide on the design, layout and shape of the mold, we create multiple 3-dimensional images for your review and approval. We are then ready to manufacture your custom mold. It generally takes 1-2 weeks to complete the process. We can do rush orders for an additional $50.00 per order.
Most custom molds cost around $250.00 to create the 3-D design, machine and cast the masters.
Almost any logo or design can be made into a mold. There are limitations however, and we need to see your artwork to determine if it can be molded. Some shapes and sizes are more economical than others. The cost increases with more intricate and contoured designs. You have the option of raised or recessed imprinting of the name/logo on the face of the bar.
What is a "Master" in mold making?
A master is a casting of your mold design and is necessary in the final mold product. We keep your master on hand and can create more molds for you when needed. The master is a one-time cost for your design and future costs are simply the cost of producing the mold itself.
Is the material safe for food?
Our molds are made from a clear PVC 0.04 mil plastic suitable for melt and pour, cold process, and hot process soap making.
What does a custom mold cost?
Each custom mold is different and costs can vary greatly depending on the complexity and size of your design. MoldMarket will work with you to determine costs associated with a particular design. The initial cost to create a master is a one-time fee, but future costs are simply the cost of producing the mold itself.
Is there a minimum order?
Once a master is created we can make any number of molds you need. Large quantity orders receive a discount.
How long does it take to make a custom mold?
Creating a custom mold can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks depending on current production schedules. Lead time does not include shipping the finished molds.
