Welcome to Chicago Culinary FX

We produce superior food-contact-safe silicone molds. Operating as the custom division under the umbrella of the Chicago School of Mold Making, we have established ourselves as industry leaders when it comes to shaping food. With thirteen years of experience devoted to the pastry and culinary market, we take our clients success very seriously.
From supplying schools when they update their curriculum to multinational brands seeking to stay competitive in the global market, Chicago Culinary FX has the ability and resources to resolve your food shaping needs. Working with clients all over the world, we look forward to giving shape to your ideas.

We understand this may be your first time inquiring about a custom mold. To fully understand your vision, we need to know how you intended to use your mold as the use determines the design and the cost.

(Respectfully, if you are just curious for a 'ballpark' estimate, our custom molds can cost from $900 - $10,000+)

How will you use the mold?*

Approximately how many pieces do you need to make each batch?*

If other, please describe:

Why is it important to know your batch size?
Small Molds: 8" x 10" with 15-30 cavities/impressions

If you are pouring small batches, it is more economical for us to make a mold template that has fewer cavities/impressions on each mold sheet. The fewer the cavities, the less expensive the initial set-up.

Large Molds: half-sheet pan size 70 - 500 cavities/impressions

If you are pouring large batches (several hundred to thousands) of food pieces per batch, it makes more sense for us to design a mold that has maximum cavities/impressions per mold. A large mold makes economic sense even when the initial 'set up' costs are more, as the finished production molds are more efficient.
