Default Anyone use Bottle Mark bottle caps?

Curious if anyone uses these guys? Seems interesting, so I was just wondering if anyone had used em and what they thought...

I have order from BottleMark a couple of times already. Very happy with them. They can be a little "grainy" but for the most part very good. See attached photo.

Just looked into it. The price is actually really good. I wouldn't mind something like this for a special batch - gift maybe? Bottom-Side-Up - are you using these for all your brews or just particular ones?

NineMilBill - we only use them on certain beers. The picture is our one year anniversary pale ale. I have also done them in black for our Black rye IPA. They are very cool....the problem is we enter beer into competitions and the caps need to marking free. I know we can just use a sharpie to cover it up, but sometimes it is just easier to cap them with regular caps. I do recommend them though. Last time I ordered I believe it was $0.12/cap.

I've used them and the product is pretty good. I paid 12 cents a cap.

I'm planning on using them, but can't find a good way to design the label. I am not familiar with graphic design, and the one they recommend on their website is not terribly user friendly. I don't want any pictures, just a round design with 2 colors and text. Any suggestions?

I just ordered 120 of one I made up. I used Photoshop Elements to create it. It's not great but I wanted to order some using this logo to see how they turned out.

Excuse my terrible phone camera, but I just ordered 140 of these and they came in today. I love them.

Despite what the picture might make you think, the writing on them is legible.

I think .12 a piece is pretty reasonable and they only took about a week and a half to get here.
