Specs & tips

Printing our bottles takes precision work. Temperature differences during the production process and the conical shape of the bottle have a major effect on the printing process. Good artwork is essential for this. The better the artwork, the better the result. We are ready to help make this process run smoothly and quickly for you.

Before the bottle goes into production, you will receive a design with all the relevant information in a package. Production starts with your written approval.

Full colour process print: CMYK It could be, that part of the design has to be made up in CMYK and an aditional spot colour. For example, text with a specific pantone colour. Therefore, to ensure your calculations are correct, please always send us the artwork to check the number of print colour required.
Printing full colour When printing a multiple colour design,where the colours meet a 0.5 mm tolerance in closure must be accepted. When the printing full colour process CMYK, the end result will be matte, pixelated and can deviate from the visual proof. Our raste size is 34 dpi.
Printing on coloured bottlesTo print a pantone colour onto a coloured bottle, it’s necessary to print a white underlay first. No white underlay is required for grey tints, gold, silver and white. In some cases an outline is visible and has to be accepted. The white underlay is calculated as one extra print colour and one extra screen. If white is already part of the design, there is no extra white underlay required. If in doubt, please contact us for information.
Dark bottlesDark bottles are more sensitive to scratches and scuff marks.
