Custom Dies

All foil stamping is done using custom dies. Dies that are 4” x 2” are considered Standard size. Anything over 4” x 2” is considered a Large die and subject to an additional fee. A Tap Sales Service Specialist can provide you with an estimated cost.

File Formats

Vector files such as EPS and AI files work best, however, in some instances we can also work with PDFs and JPEGs (3MB min. size). Vector files are not rasterized and can be scaled up or down without loss of detail. If your file is not vector, please note that we will have to trace your image and this may cause text and details to become slightly distorted. Resolution should be at least 300 dpi.

Acceptable file types when uploading a custom logo

Details

Unfortunately, images that are extremely detailed will not meet our high quality standards. Some details that we can’t stamp include gradients, overlapped images, etc. If the graphic has many small lines, stamping will cause the lines to close up or bleed together.

Size

All items will be stamped according to the conventional practices for the item and type of packaging involved. Text and logos will be centered and sized to best fit the available stamping area.

Font

When including artwork, please make sure to outline all text! If you would like us to add or change any text, such as a date, please make sure to email us your font file to customercare@tap-usa.com and reference your order number. The minimum font size for sans serif is 8pt and 10pt.
