thanks ditchy.

For what it's worth, I would go with black on yellow. Not only do the yellow bottles stand out a bit more, but if the bottles are black that will heat up the liquid inside them that little bit more efficiently, and personally, warm Powerbar is not one of my favorites.

Also, I think black skulls will print better, and "match" the kit more.

yup, but the yellow we get will be out of our control.... maybe we can get them to send a sample?

thanks cake - did you go down the postoffice to get that costing?

now i've seen it i really love the yellow design.

btw yellow bottle tops mean a minimum order of 500 which isn't achievable really. i should have mentioned that.

the guy is sending me a yellow bottle and a yellow translucent bottle.   will let you know the results of my rigorous tests.

the yellow they do is

Yellow P102

there's a fractional difference with P108.  it is brighter i guess.

here's a panatone colour chart.  i was sure until today panatone was a dessert.

ah cool.  so, if this is packaged in a one of those plastic bags or in a jiffy bag, does it make a difference to postage costs (other than the overall weight of course).

also, what do you reckon about oversees postage.  how much extra?

cake - looks like the bottles are around 80g.  so i think with packaging & delivery note we'll be over 100g.  how does that affect the costs?

thanks for your help

I have a Pantone swatchbook here, 102 is more of a acid lemon yellow than 108 which is warmer. Am sure it will be fine though.

I'd just go for the black top rather than worrying about a yellow top.

I prefer yellow bottle with black skull.  I think it's more in keeping with the rest of the pirate kit. Also I prefer just two skulls rather than the mosaic one.  The mosaic one looks too fussy.

do you reckon this shows the colour difference accurately when compared to the real colours?  never sure about colours on computers.

JD yes in terms of showing how 108 is warmer. On my screen the 102 is still warmer than on the swatchbook, on the swatchbook it is still colder, and more 'acid' lemon.

Wouldn't worry about it though - just compared my swatchbook to my LG pirate top, and to my eyes it looks more like 102 than 108 anyway!

I'd say it was a near enough match for our purposes!

just see on their website it'll be 1.41 second class.  so add a bit on to that for the inevitable price rises.  plus packaging we're looking around 4.40-4.99 per bottle.  less for additional bottles i guess as postage shouldn't be much more.  any little bits of money left over to be ploughed back into pirate things, not necessarily the website.

I don't like black bottles. You can't see the black fungus growing in them when they are dirty...

I just weighed a 750ml bottle (High 5 type from Vitruvian) @ 88gms so providing the packaging was minimal it should come in under 100gms for posting.

jeez, i'm turning into lance armstrong weighing bottles. 

depending on the bottle with packaging it's just over or just under 100g.  think it's best to assume it'll be over.

Note:

Everyone has asked for 2 or 4  bottles so the cost will normally be for posting 2 or 4 bottles at the same time.

ie < 250gms.
