________________________________________________________________

Important things to consider before purchasing your bottles, tubes and jars.
To avoid delays with your printing, send a sample of each container to Blue Line Labels before you make your final purchase so we can test the ink on the plastic to verify virgin material.

Every tube, bottle and jar has a story and we can help avoid many unforseen issues and deliver a beautifully decorated result. You may not be aware when buying a sprayed and painted glass if it will scratch. Surplus or slightly defective containers sometimes are not all from the same lot and vary in size, plastic containers may not be made from virgin material and could scratch or fall off. Sending us a sample is the best way to evaluate the proper ink/process needed and will result in success. Our goal is the same as yours, we want to deliver beautifully decorated labels, jars, bottles, squeezable tubes and custom boxes.

Keep your design simple! Screen printing
is made for an elegant and minimalistic look.

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”

Understanding The Silk Screen Printing Workflow

________________________________________________________________

Here are the Steps to a Fast Turnaround and Great Experience with Blue Line Labels.

We work closely with APC Packaging who supplies excellent quality glass and plastic bottles, tubes and jars for silk screen printing. Look at their available in-stock items and contact Nikita Byfield or Orlando Bonnelly at APC Packaging (954) 978-4567 to order samples.

Blue Line Labels picks up at APC Packaging daily at no charge or ship your packaging directly from another company to Blue Line Labels • 1931 Banks Road, Margate, Florida 33063 • Attn: (Your Company Name).

Email your artwork to bill@bluelinelabels.com and make sure you include your fonts outlined and send an Ai, eps or PDF file. You can also speak to Devin, Wendie, Patrick or Art and they can help from start to finish or anywhere in between to prepare your art files for screen print. We charge $55 per hour and our creative team is fast, efficient and will do it correctly.

Important that your designer does not use thin small lines in your design or thin type styles less than 5 points in size. This causes a potential problem of the lines not printing correctly. We will do our best to advise but every bottle, tube and jar are made different from different manufacturers. Be careful, not all packaging is made from virgin materials and packed correctly for shipment. Once all artwork is approved, we will ship your printed order in 3 weeks or less. Faster service is available if needed.

Silk Screen Printing on Glass

Screen Printing on Glass for CBD Cosmetics

We print with a special epoxy ink on glass. It is harder to work with and curing time is a longer process. Most glass comes from overseas and a coat of silicon is added to prevent glass breakage during transportation.

We need to take off the oils and silicon coating to clean glass and plastic polypropylene containers. It is necessary to flame all glass and polypropylene plastic with an intense flame quickly, to kill off impurities. This is necessary for the ink to stay stuck and cure.

Flaming is an additional step that requires a flat charge of $50 for small quantities if we are printing on glass or polypropylene.

Guidelines When Sending Art Files for Silk Screen Printing

When submitting artwork for screen printing, please send the original file in vector format (either .ai or .eps). If you cannot send .ai or .eps, we can recreate your artwork for an additional charge.
Please also indicate the PMS color if we are printing anything other than black or white. If you are doing more than one color, it cannot be tight registration. For instance, your logo can be one color and the text another; however, you cannot have half of a word in one color and the other half in another color.

How an Airless Bottle Works
Airless bottles have a piston-driven mechanism that allows for airless dispensing of your product. Pressing down on the pump raises the piston placed at the bottom of the bottle and dispensing the product. This seal of the mechanism prevents contamination and provides protection for sensitive and active ingredients vulnerable to oxygen. The bottles are top-filled without any special equipment required.
Acrylic, Aluminum, Double Walled Glass Jars
Give your product a sophisticated look with quality acrylic jars. Jars have a great canvas for silkscreen printing, hot stamping and labeling. Common usage for acrylic jars are for high quality moisturizers, scrubs, exfoliants, gels and creams.

You can also send your containers
directly from any supplier you choose to:
