What is the lead time for custom shrink caps?Updated 2 months ago

The lead time for custom capsules from Jelinek is 10-14 weeks from the time the proof is approved. It's important to note that this timeline starts from the approval of the proof or from reordering an existing design. 

If it's a new design or size, extra time should be allocated for sizing and design confirmation. Sizing involves bottle and closure measurements, tear tab positioning, shrink compensation, and logo formatting. For a new design or size, we recommend allowing an additional 3-6 weeks for preproduction samples.
