What is a die/mould charge and when it’s applied?
A die is a tool used in manufacturing to cut or shape material using a press. Die struck pieces are made by mechanically hammering and pressing a sheet of metal onto hardened steel die to make pattern or impression. Dies are made from hardened steel are capable of producing thousands of medals/pins. Casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mould, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify.
Die/mould charge is a one-time fee that covers the cost of producing necessary manufacturing tools for your medal/badge production. This fee won’t apply to your subsequent orders provided your medal/badge design is the same. We have to produce a new mould/die each time you request changes, even small ones like adding or removing date. Please note that there is front and back die charge applied for double-sided medals.
N.B. We endeavour at all times to hold and maintain all tooling in good condition for re-use at a later time. However, due to storage restraints dies and tools will normally be held for a period of 2 years and disposed of should no subsequent orders for the product be received.
Die/mould charge does not include print set- up ( ribbons or small text printed onto the surface of the medal).
