My husband made a vacuum mold machine. What we do is customize candy bars. We have the customer send us what they want to put on the candy bar in an AI format we then send the graphic to our engraver, he then lasers us 16 molds of the candy bar. We then put those on a large board (we have the board and plastic pre cut to fit the molds) and then we are able to vacuum the candy bar molds. We make 4 molds with 4 candy bars on each mold at one time. It took some practice but the molds are coming out nice!! and the candy bars look great. We charge a one time set up fee for the candy bar molds and request a 2 week lead time to get the molds made once the graphics have been sent to us. The molds end up costing a few dollars each.
I found a company that will custom print them minimum order is 50,000 pcs. Not sure I want to spend that much right now. The perfect order would be 10,000 pcs.
I am looking for confectionery foils with a soccer ball design on them. Would like a silver background with black imprint. Does anybody know who carries these. Have looked and called all over and can't find them!
I have been looking for some soccer ball printed foils to wrap chocolate balls in any one know where to find these. I have exhausted my searches online. I know I've seen them but cannot find them any where. I need some no bigger than 4 x 4 can go as small as 3 x 3. Would be great if they were black with silver backing.

After putting the chocolate in my molds I put it in the refrigerator to set for about 10 minutes, if it doesn't come out of the molds easily then return to refrigerator. I only heat it up to about 110. I find if I don't put it in the refrigerator right away I do get bloom. Since I started that I've never had a problem.
I do custom candy bars. Please check out http://www.bigfootchocolate.com/.
I can have molds made (any size) to your designs and have the wrappers to match. I do milk and dark chocolate with flavors. Please let me know if you have questions or need samples of my bars. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!!
We are new to the business and have attended at least one event where your products were on display. While we plan on working the "shows" for awhile longer we do get inquiries about wholesaling from time to time. The profit margins are very close as it is, not so much with the ingredients but the labor involved, and discounting seems to be a problem. We extended an offer of 25% to one store and it wasn't accepted well. I was wondering what kind of discounts producers are offering to retailers.
