Where are you
in the process?

Have you ever molded chocolate before, or are you a veteran chocolatier upgrading your capabilities? For first timers, starting with a professional grade set of molds means you're taking your new venture seriously and avoiding the costly step of starting with inferior molds. For veterans, your understanding of your market and demand will help you make informed decisions on the type and quantity of molds you need.

Do you have
a design?

Whether we help you create it, or your provide us with files, a 3D design is required of your logo and bar design. You can provide a 2D design and our team will help you every step of the way to give you the high quality design you dream of.

Consider the
size and shape

Are you making bars? 3D shapes? How big will they be, what shape? There are pros and cons of different bar shapes and sizes, from whether you're using fillings to how they fit on retail shelves. For example, a 3 oz. bar that's 8mm thick yields 18 square inches. You cold have a 9" x 2" bar, or 6" x 3", etc. If you are using inclusions such as fruit or nuts, the thickness and depth of score lines must be considered in your design.

Do you want one big continuous design on the bar or a sectioned one? Once we have worked out these details, we will move to step 4.

Determine
the quantity

How many molds will you need? This will be affected by the size of the bar, how many impressions you can get per mold, as well as our earlier questions about your manufacturing process. Do you want to start with a smaller batch, or plan now for growth by making more than you currently need?

During the depositing, cooling and de-molding process will you have enough molds to keep a continuous rotation? This should be considered to avoid stalling production. This may have less impact if you are strictly batch processing.

Are you ready to get started?

Fully-Custom Design

This option allows you to dictate the exact length, width, thickness, weight, and number of sections of your bar, along with engravings or logos applied to it. This also applies to organic shapes other than bars/tablets.

Please continue to explore our process and submit your project for quotation!

You provide us with the following:

  • Length x Width of your bar
  • Desired weight or volume of your bar/shape
  • Desired thickness - will be calculated

You provide us with artwork, 2D logo, or engraving design in vector art form (dxf preferred).

We design and create a digital 3D virtual bar shape and email it to you. This allows you to view your bar in a virtual 3D space from all angles and also provides you with the physical size and volume.

Upon approval of the 3D digital model, we provide you with a single impression prototype mold. This is either a thin plastic mold OR a 3D printed cavity for testing. (Not a full size injection mold)

We provide you with an engineering mold drawing that illustrates the overall molds size, positioning, and placement of the cavities/impressions in the mold.

Upon approval of the prototype and mold drawings, we manufacture the metal injection mold die/tooling.

We produce the plastic polycarbonate injection molds.
