Art Development

The experts at our Art Studio are available at every step of your project. Whether you have a rough concept or full art already created- we can turn your vision into high performing silicone and metal hot stamping dies, meticulously designed for optimal performance in your specific application.

Concept Consulting

Our deep expertise (over 100 years combined experience) in all aspects of art development for hot stamp applications makes us an excellent resource for brands looking for insightful advice on design. We provide consulting on how to achieve optimal decoration impact and efficiency.

Functional Design

In addition to enhancing visual impact, we also provide functional design elements. For example, we can apply a screen pattern on bold image dies to assist with eliminating air entrapment.

Art Translation

We are experts at translating your artwork onto silicone and metal dies that ensure your vision is precisely translated into highly repeatable decoration. We know how to modify your art for optimal decoration performance by:

Accounting For

  • Textured surfaces
  • Part contours
  • Substrate requirements

Adapting Artwork For

  • CNC machine engraved (steel and brass) dies
  • Photo-etched (silicone and magnesium dies)

To Achieve

  • Desired line weights
  • Legibility on even the smallest design aspects (no tiny gap fill in)
Film Development

Film can play a key role in the development of quality hot stamping dies. At United Silicone, we excel at creating thermal film with the latest technology in order to produce superior stamping dies.

Full Art Proofs

We provide full art proofs at your request. In addition to showing full artwork, these documents outline art and die sizes and other key project information. This allows for a more thorough review prior to production and also simplifies reordering.
