just thinking about design again.  might be difficult to design by committe but would you guys prefer a see through bottle?  could piratise this.  not whether it's feasible or not as i think a minimum of 500 bottles will need to be ordered to get the yellow cap.

the company i've been looking at have a gallery of bottles - http://www.wildoo.co.uk/gallery/index.htm

JD

Not to bothered about being see through as long as it has skull & crossbones on

Yellow cap would be nice, or how about a yellow bottle with black skull & bones on and a black cap

reasoning behind see through bottle is easy to see how much liquid you've got left, see if your powder's mixed plus less garish.  but i guess we should be loud and proud so ignore the garish bit.

solid yellow would be something like this

Personally I like the solid yellow better, but maybe thats just me

 If it helps I can take 8 instead of 4

Any idea what the price per bottle wopuld be if the order was 500?? May take more if the price is right

That's the one that caught my eye, JD

I prefer the solid yellow and surely that's what makes it a pirate bottle.  I can see why transparent would be better in terms of seeing contents etc, but surely it gotta be the yellow

okey dokey, getting a couple of samples sent to me.  leadtime is 4-5 weeks once artwork is confirmed.  if the bottles look solid and work well i reckon we can go with them.  designs to be confirmed but basically there's not alot of choice given there's no words on pirate kit, the bottles be yellow and will have skulls on it.  so shouldn't take too long to work out the designs!

paypal shopping cart looks pish easy to setup, they take a cut but it'll make things easy.  so, with the costs of 150 bottles and artwork setup plus paypal fees we're currently looking at around £2.85 per bottle plus postage.  i was hoping to nip out to the post office to check postage today but i've not had time.  will probably do that tomorrow if i get snowed in!

As for the correct yellow... The yellow is the above file did NOT exactly match the colour given below:

From

Mister W's take on the Yellow in "The Piratesbuff thread".

"In case anyone cares........ the colour is Yellow 108c. That's the official word from a very nice lady at LG."

Looking this up here:

Pantone colours

This appears to give a rough RGB value of R=247 G=217 B=23 (HTML f7db17)

The picture I originally posted above had a slightly different yellow (a bit brighter). I've now corrected the linked image to the above values.

Note: It is likely that other sources will give slightly different conversions of the pantone to RGB values.

e.g. The Pantone web site sample for 108C gives is shown with an RGB values of: R=252 R=217 B=0 (HTML FCD900)

All from this thread http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/forummessages/mps/dt/4/UTN/140230/
thanks kanga, duly noted on website now

If we go with black skulls on yellow bottles, then the yellow will presumably not be our Pantone anyway - it will be whatever yellow the bottles are maufactured on, not sure if that matters.

I think yellow skulls on black looks pretty cool though, and can then be in the correct Pantone.

I think the above shows best keep it simple, and six along the top looks better than 8.

Note the black border around the skull  on the yellow bottle will not print - it's just part of their template showing the printable area.
