1.One Side Mold VS. Two Side Mold Recommend: 4 Stars
Usually, many people will choose one side mold at GS-JJ, because it is free. Two side mold is only suggested when you need to post lots of information. Unless you want to convey lots of information or pursuit a 3D vision effect or some image must be expressed in 3D technology, 2D is enough. Of course, the price varies. 2D mold needs an extra 70$, while 3D needs an extra 165$.
2.Less Color VS. More Color Recommend: 4.5 Stars
GS-JJ can design color for your products. But the amount of color has a different price. Don’t go for color. Sometimes, Simplicity is also a beauty. When your budget is limited, you can consider it.
3.Laser Engraving VS. Deep Engraving with Color Filled Recommend: 4.8 Stars
On the back of products, when you add some information like your company name. Laser engraving is enough. On the one hand, price is reasonable; on the other hand, there is no “knife marks”, and do not affect the surface of the product. In addition, the speed is quick. Deep engraving takes much time by using a machine. When meeting different texts, it needs to design procedure, and it will waste much time.
