Full color (CMYK) imprint
• Full color designs may be supported by a PMS color for texts for example. Text cannot be built up in CMYK because it’s out of focus. Ask us for advice on how to build up your design before you start. Adding an extra color obviously changes pricing.

Overlapping several print colors
In view of material tolerance you need to account for a 0.5 mm overlap in places where colors are touching each other. This is to avoid ‘gaps’ from occurring between colors. In case of white under print, the white film needs to be reduced by 0.5 mm.

Printing on colored or transparent bottles
• In order to obtain the desired PMS colors it is necessary to print on a white background. This is why one color extra start-up costs are invoiced. If white is one of the colors in the design, it may be used as background (at no extra cost). For a silver colored water bottle this is not necessary.

• Mac: typestyle in Outline (please send us font)
• PC: always change letters to Outline

Visual to make your own design

In order to make your own design you or your studio can download the PDF files that fit the bottle of your choice. On the first page of the PDF you find the white bottle. When you scroll, you see all the color options of this type of bottle. It is also possible to send the artwork to us. With the right instructions our designer can make a design for you.
