FAQs - Printed Metal Charms

Can you help me set up my charm designs?
Yes! simply submit your artwork using the 'upload artwork' button or email your artwork to info@zapcreatives.com, along with any instructions (hole location, transparencies, etc) and we'll create your charms and send you a digital proof for your approval.

What material are the printed metal charms made of?

Yes, 304 stainless steel is nickel free, hypoallergenic and won't tarnish or rust.

How thick is the metal?
Our printed metal charms are 0.7mm thick.

Is the metal easy to bend?
No, you would have to really try and bend the charms to distort them.

Will the print scratch off?
The ink adhesion is excellent across all of our products, but if you anticipate your merchandise will be used in high impact areas, like being bashed against keys or jingled about in a pocket full of loose change, then we definitely recommend adding a resin dome, which will increase its durability.

No, we only engrave repeat back patterns onto the back of our printed metal charms. You can have a double sided, full colour print though.

What is the finish on the reverse (side B) of my metal charms?

If you choose a matte finish for side A of your metal charm then we will apply a matte finish to Side B too. If you choose a gloss, resin or glitter resin finish for for side A of your metal charm, we will apply a gloss finish to side B of your charm.
