Styles of Surface Edges and Corners for your Soap Bar

Styles of Corners
There are four styles of corners. First, the square or straight-cut corner, slight or lightly rubbed corner, full round corner, and a beveled corner.
It is possible to style your soap bar using different combinations of edges and corners, or use the same combination of edges and corners.
The style of edges and corners does two things: effects the feel of the bar and appearance of the bar.
Whatever the choice of style, Masterline will always recommend having slightly rounded surface edges and corners to reduce air bubbles and sometimes pockets of air that form along the inside the silicone mold. The slightly rounded edges break the surface tension in the corners when your soap formula is being poured.
We suggest having the flatest top surface as possible with raised (embossed)or carved (engraved) company name and/or logo/artwork/lettering. Having a curved rounded top surface does make the logo or artwork appear distorted.
Adding a border around your soap, especially with an oval shape, is like adding a picture frame. You have a choice of a narrow or wide border around the edge your soap bar. In some cases, the border protects the logo and artwork of the soap.
Getting the right shape of soap bar, the right size of soap bar, and the right dimensions of your soap require any decisions. If you have any questions, our many years of experience working with clients either at the corporate level or the local level might prove. helpful.
