Updated: Jun 19, 2023

Production Decorating has over 50 years experience in silk screen printing on different types of cylindrical plastic bottles.

Whether your bottle is evenly cylindrical or has more of a tapered shape, our team has the capabilities to achieve your project goals.

  • No labels or stickers

  • Superior adhesion

  • 360 degree printing

What will it cost for silk screening my containers?

This depends on the specific printing goals for your project. Every silk screening job is different. Submit a quote to our team and see if we are a fit for your silk screening needs.

What information is needed for an accurate quote?

The following information will need to be provided for the most accurate quote:

  • Material being printed

  • Order quantity

  • Artwork (pdf or ai file)

  • Print

  • PMS color

The printing process can differ per your bottle printing requirements. Our silk screen printing equipment may require creating tooling designed to accommodate the bottle size and desired artwork location.

We provide single pass (one color) and multiple passes (multiple colors). Multicolor screen printing is more expensive than single pass screen printing due to the parts being processed multiple times.
