Here are my personalized bottles.




And here are my bottle caps, I really like these.




Let me know what you think, I designed and produced myself.

Are those bottles etched? How much time/money would it take to do enough bottles for a batch of beer?

Are the bottles etched or sandblasted?

Are the caps silk screened, lasered, or labels?

Both the caps and bottles are engraved by a laser. The laser is able to do great detail on items. The draw back is the time associated with each item, one cap takes 50 seconds, and each bottle takes 5 mins. If interested let me know, I do engraving on the side.
To me its worth the time, thanks for the replies.

Reason: Change text arrangement
