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.

Mine shipped a couple of days ago. What did you use to make the logo ?

I drew the rats out by hand, then took them into Adobe Illustrator and made everything else there.

I'm kinda wishing now I hadn't bottled my raspberry wheat the other day so I could use these, but I had no idea when they were going to come, haha.

I have ordered over 300 and am very happy with them. I custom cap every one of my bottles.

I ordered 250 a couple months ago and have been very happy with the result... But... I've been cherishing them too much to actually put them on a brew. I drew my logo, scanned it onto the computer, and then sent it off. Their site is very easy to work with , and I had my caps less than a week later. (Ordered Saturday and recieved them on like Friday)

Ok, I finally was able to get around to ordering my caps. They were very easy to work with, I never did figure out the image software, I got most of the way there with Inkscape and they did the rest for me, a fantastic job by the way on the artwork. I ordered and they were available in 6 days for pickup since I'm in Houston. Here's one of the style's I have(first picture post, hopefully I get it right):

I've used them as well. They are a little grainy and they should not be soaked to sanitize them (flip them upside down and use a spray bottle). If they are soaked, some of the image may come off when it hits the capper.

Having said that, they are worth 12 cents per cap. I ordered a test batch and liked them enough to order 600 more (four different styles). As long as you have realistic expectations, you will be happy with them.

I would certainly recommend them. I rarely bottle anymore, but ordered some to have around for special batches, give aways, etc. They are very nice folks to deal with. The printed caps are not as durable as as painted, but you don't have to order 100,000 either.

Do they offer silver now? It states on their site that they only offer white caps, but are working on getting others. The previous pictures in the thread appear to be the white caps as well. I haven't ordered any, but I am considering it for a batch I'll be doing in the spring (still have plenty of time for them to offer more base colors or completely go out of business for that matter (I'm hoping they don't)).
