designing your disc
Please Read Carefully.
This may look like a lot to go through, but taking a few minutes to digest this info now will help you create the best design possible.
Thin lines have a tendency not to print. Please keep all lines at least 1mm thick. Super fine details are generally not suggested for hot stamp designs. This is also true of "reversed" lines (where the background is the stamping color, and the line is actually the disc color showing through). If an area of non-print is less than 1mm thick, the foil will fill it in and make the area appear solid.
Very fine points are not recommended since the hot stamp foil may start to peel from that point, or may become rounded or torn. To prevent this, slightly round off all fine points at the ends of lines and in other small shapes.
Fonts should be at least 12 points in size. Serif fonts do not print well since the serifs are so fine. if you choose a serif font, it must be bold and at least 28 points.
Reverse text (the underlying disc color "showing through" a solid printed area) should be a little larger than 20 points and bold so it doesn't fill in. With reverse text, the bigger the better.
It is best to avoid outlining text on two color designs. If your design includes a significant amount of outlining on text or other elements, you will be required to sign a line-up waiver before we will be able to process your order
