    • Note: Black Paint is one of two choices to for when the customer wants a “black” finish (the other is Shiny Gunmetal). Black Paint is not as smoothly-metallic looking as gunmetal. It is like a coat of glossy black paint was added around the entire surface of the product.
    • Black Paint
  • Two Tone Metal Plating (Must Be Same Finish Type)
    • Choosing shiny gold and shiny silver together makes for the best result. The other rule is that only “same-type” finishes can be chosen: (i.e. 2 shiny’s, 2 antique’s, 2 satin’s)
  • Divot Tool Design Colors
    • The Divot Tool Design & Colors SO-Cat applies to the marker and the clip parts, if market and clip style is chosen, not just the tool part
  • Soft Enamel
    • If you do NOT choose a “Soft Enamel” or a “Hard Enamel” option, then soft enamel will be the default. But if the customer opts for hard enamel, then you must choose the SO.
    • Incompatible with no color metal products.
    • Soft Enamel Divot Tools
  • Hard Enamel
    • Hard enamel is most know because the enamel colors and the walls are polished down to the same level, so the surface is smooth, unlike the emb/deb surface of soft enamel colors.
    • For the same reason as polishing, there can only be 2 “levels” during the manufacturing process and enamel application, but after polished, there will only 1 level.
  • Laser Engraved
    • Laser engraved can keep surface have smooth feel.
    • This can be chosen in addition to soft/hard enamel colors, but it can NOT be applied to the enamel colored surfaces
    • Laser Engraved-Divot Tools
  • Offset Printed with Epoxy Dome
    • Offset printing allows for printing of unlimited colors, since it uses a CMYK printing process.
    • Offest printing is be best way to reproduce images and photographes without the color-fill limitations of enamel colors.
    • Epoxy dome is a must. It adds a glossy coating and smooth feel, and protects the printed design from scratches.
    • Epoxy dome can not be paired with Silver or Chrome Metallic finish of any kind due to a chemical reaction during manufacturing process ; and can not be paired with Antique metallic finish of any kind, because the “blacking” process would tarnish the epoxy dome.
    • Offset-Printing+Epoxy dome is incompatible with no-color style metal products.
    • please pay attention to if add epoxy dome onto surface, the finish will be darker than normal finish.
    • Offset Printed with Epoxy Dome-Divot Tools-Customized
  • Epoxy Coating (Colors or Clear)
    • Most often paired with soft enamel designs, to keep the textured embossed/debossed look, but add a glossy coating and smooth feel.
    • Epoxy dome can not be paired with Silver or Chrome Metallic finish of any kind due to a chemical reaction during manufacturing process ; and can not be paired with Antique metallic finish of any kind, because the “blacking” process would tarnish the epoxy dome.
    • Offset-Printing+Epoxy dome is incompatible with no-color style metal products.
    • Epoxy Coating (Colors or Clear)Epoxy Coating (Colors or Clear) -Coins
  • Rhinestones
    • Rhinestones are available in sizes from 1-5mm, and in common sizes like hexagon, and available in hundreds of colors. We can’t pantone match them, but we can close-match. The design needs to include a “socket” placement area for each rhinestone, so remember that they need the minimum 0.2mm “wall”.
    • our default is round, other custom shape needs MOQ.

  • Bottle Opener
    • Bottle Opener-Divot Tools
  • Die Struck (No Colors)
    • Die struck will make logos/designs more vibrant than flat options but it different from 3D.
    • Shiny finish must be last choice for die struck with no colors, or it will be very vague both front and backing, antique and matte finish are both better options, please see below example:
    • ○Die Struck (No Colors) - Coins○Die Struck (No Colors)
  • Marker Release Type
    • This indicates what area of the “cup base” below the marker will be intented, similar to this fashion.
    • If the customer doesn’t know, then ½ indented is the recommended choice.

  • 1/3 Recessed Push Release
  • 2/3 Recessed Push Release

  • Backside Opening Release
    • This allows customers to push the marker away from the backside, instead of “popping it up” from the frontside like the other recessed push releases.
    • There will be no indentation pop up mechanism needed, so the base of the cup is flat.
    • There will be 2 or more magnets positioned around the perimeter of the base of the cup
    • Backside Opening Release
  • Flat Slide Release
    • This leaves very small edges around the perimiter of the base, as small as 0.25 mm
    • The customer can use their thumb to slide the marker away with great ease
    • This is the least secure type of release, so the marker is most easy to fall off accidentally
    • There will be no indentation pop up mechanism needed, so the base of the cup is flat.

6. Design Guide & Mockup Tips 

  • None for now
  • Metallic Finish/Plating ;
    • Should NOT use a pantone color code ;
    • Should be written exactly as in Special Option
  • Pantone color swatch and Pantone color code ;
    • Must be a color between 100-7771 ; We do not accept other colors (we only have pantone swatch books that go from 100-771 ;
    • The color swatch used should accurately match the code used ; We can NOT change the swatch, but not change the code on the mockup ;
    • Sales/CS should explain a common pain point — The pantone swatch on the mockup doesn’t exactly seem to match the pantone swatch on the technical mockup, and on the sample photo, and on the actual order when in hands. Even if throughout the entire process we use one SINGLE pantone color CODE, different monitors and different versions of Adobe Illustrator will display the color slightly differently. Could show customer what we mean by asking them to go to Pantone official website enter the same pantone color on their cell phone as on their computer to so “Oh, there is a difference”.

      • Can not do any of the “Glossy” or “Other” finishes
    • Neither Offset Printing nor Epoxy Dome can combine with, . . .
      • Silver or Chrome (because the baking process of Epoxy will react with these metals)
