CUSTOM HOT STAMP
CUSTOM DEPARTMENT TAKES A BREAK
From now on we have closed the Latitude 64° Custom Department. We are rebuilding the custom department as we are adding more capacity to our production line. Orders already in the system will be completed, but we will not accept any new orders. Our Custom Department is closed until further notice.
/Latitude 64° Warehouse Crew
We offer custom discs for clubs/teams, tournaments, dealers, companies and special events. The minimum order for custom hot stamping is 50 discs. It is important to plan and order early, due to the lead time of around 2 weeks in Europe. Custom stamping for the U.S. market is handled by Dynamic Discs. Lead times vary depending on what mold you are looking for and the chosen discs inventory status.
If the requirements and specifications below are met, we will be able to give you a higher quality custom stamp on the discs as well as faster service. If there are any questions regarding price quote and specific lead times, please send us an e-mail or call us using the phone numbers listed under Contacts.
- Piece minimum (discs or minis, not a combination of both)

- Setup fee on all orders under 100 total discs
- Setup fee on re-orders under 100 total discs

CUSTOM HOT STAMP TEMPLATES
• Maximum size of the hotstamp is: 130 x 130 mm (51/8 by 51/8 inches ) in size.
• Use only CMYK 100% Black and CMYK white for the graphics (The white will not show in the final result.)
• Please convert all fonts to shapes.
• Hot stamps should be submitted as 100% black and white.
• Acceptable file types are .ai | .eps | .pdf (high quality print)
THICKNESS AND COVERAGE
• Avoid solid coverage areas as they do not stamp well. We recommend a maximum area thickness of 10 mm.
• Outlining usually solves the problem, as shown above in the first and second image.
• Avoid covering the center of the disc when possible.
• Covering the center of the disc nearly guarantees a drop-out/misprint.
• Do not use text to break up thick spaces.
• Instead, invert the area and have the text be the area that gets stamped.
• Avoid thick and thin lines that are close to one another.
• This will cause the stamp to bleed together.
• Keep consistent thickness in concentrated areas.
