Default Custom bottle caps?

Is there some place for homebrewers to buy custom bottle caps like the big boys use? I'm thinking something that has a custom graphical design on it, etc.

Any ideas?

Default Custom Bottle Caps

I order mine from Crafty Caps. They're pretty good quality and there's no minimum order. Good Luck!

Did you have any issues with your caps from crafty caps? I don't think that the design resists when wetted as they tell us not to boil or soak them for sanitization...

?!?

Default Crafty Cap Results

Yeah, at first I had some trouble because I had been soaking my caps and I asked them about this before ordering. They suggested their "recommended" procedure, which does take some time to do - The flipping them over and spraying the bottoms. At first I tried the soaking them, and they were actually just fine in the Iodine mixture we used originally...although at one point left a couple in for about (maybe) 10 minutes and it started to eat the sealing away. Although, again, the Iodine mixture itself said not to use more than 5 minutes, so this was my fault.

For the smaller quantities of caps I want at one time, it's a simple extra step for me to just go ahead and spray the bottoms. I couldn't purchase the 10K minimum that several other places advertised. And the caps turn out pretty cute. I haven't had any issues with the designs, they worked with me pretty well.

It's pretty much a matter of if you just don't want to take the extra time to ensure the design will be fine. Which is understandable, this entire procedure takes long enough as it is.

Hope that helps!

I ordered from Crafty Caps about week and a half ago and was very pleased with a result. Their turnaround time was quick and the quality was very good as well.

We'll be opening our online store this Fall where homebrewers can go online and purchase a variety of specially designed caps or purchase custom caps with your own design.

You'll also be able to find many of our designs in your local homebrew supply store.

We'd love some feedback from any/all of you.
