    Default Custom Bottle Caps

    So on a whim I searched the internets for custom bottle caps and of the five or so sites I looked at the one below had the best pricing. They are also located in Houston, only 100 miles away, so I decided to give them a try. I ordered 100 bottle caps with my cattle brand, Circle DW, on them at 7:15pm Wednesday night. Thursday morning at about 7:40am I got a notice that a shipping label had been created. Today (Friday) at 11am my postman handed me the bottle caps. Needless to say I'm impressed. They are $0.14 each. The other sites I surfed were about $0.40-$0.55 each. Ordering is as easy as uploading a picture into their design wizard, centering it on the cap, and ordering.

    Here is a pic - my camera sucks, they look better in person. Defects in the pic (cut-off on the left) are my fault, not theirs - the photo I submitted was one I took last year and it was cropped. When I centered the image the left was cut off a bit. When I order more I will take a better picture:

    What a fun idea! I have always marked the end of the cork with some indicator '14C' for 2014 cherry, '15S' for 2015 strawberry, etc instead of doing labels, but I like the custom cap idea!

    Thanks for this. I have been looking for caps and labels that you don't have to buy in bulk. Good looking out.

    I've used Bottlemark for perhaps too many brews. Lots of fun. I did find with my last batch that some of them didn't set right, so just make sure they're tight when you bottle. I lost a few to loose caps.

    Could the bottle capper be out of adjustment or is it non-adjustable?

    Brew Your Own just had an article on how to transfer laser printed designs onto bottle caps, if you are willing to fiddle around at home.

    "Then glory in battle to Hrothgar was given, waxing of war-fame, that willingly kinsmen obeyed his bidding, till the boys grew to manhood, a numerous band. It burned in his spirit to urge his folk to found a great building, a mead-hall grander than men of the era ever had heard of, and in it to share with young and old all of the blessings the Lord had allowed him, save life and retainers." - Beowulf

    No, it's the caps. I've only had problems with printed caps. Plain color caps I've purchased were fine.
