Can we print on the top of a closed cap custom shrink cap?Updated 2 months ago

Yes, it is possible to print on the top of the closed capsule. There are a couple of options to consider. It's important to note that there is an additional 2-3 week lead time for tooling production for cap printing. 

Glossy Finish—Hot printing with foil: This process does not incur an additional cost. Due to the natural rigid aluminum material on our caps, the final print appears "shiny," and this is included in the tooling fees. The maximum dimensions allowed are 18mm, similar to the green in the photo.

Matte Finish—Flexo printing with Paint: This process incurs additional tooling fees. The maximum dimensions allowed are 20mm, and production will be delayed an additional 2 weeks for this special tooling process, like the black in the photo. The painted version shrinks better than the hot printing. 

It's important to note that due to the aluminum cap material, printed finishes may not be an exact match to printed finishes on the sides of the capsules.
