There is a thread on here somewhere about someone who made his own custom caps. I'm too lazy to dig it up right now but a site search could help you come up with it.

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

So when do you guys think that you'll be up and running? Im seriously looking for some caps in the next week or so!

Of course we can! We've only delayed the opening of the online store so we can focus on our brewery customers and getting the process down. We should be activating the store in the coming weeks.

We're 100% operational and have been printing lots of brewery jobs so shoot me an email [email protected] and let's talk. I'd love to help you out.

Ben

The approach I saw on here that work well was to use water-slide decal transfer paper. Print on that, then apply to the caps as you would apply a decal to a model.

For anyone that's still interested, check out my Vendor Ads for a discount on engraved caps. They're good for homebrewer quantities, because there's no setup fee or huge minimum order. They'll ship immediately!

Of the links posted so far, Brew toppers seems to be the best and most affordable. However, their selection of designs is small and custom design prices are not listed.

If you feel like harnessing your inner artist, spray paint works great to get some cheap and interesting results. I use this method so I can tell different brews apart by their caps when they're sitting in the fridge together.

Do you do small quantity jobs for homebrewing yet? I'd be interested in maybe purchasing a couple hundred or so.

You're probably better off getting in touch with Jon Haase ([email protected]). He's pretty responsive to email. He got me a quote for 300 caps (50 each of 6 different cap/ink color combinations). Looks like about a 2 week lead time from payment to receiving them. They're doing the 300 for me at the 500-1000 rate ($0.19 each). Their standard caps colors are red, black, blue, green, orange, yellow, silver gold & white. Standard ink colors are silver, black and white. Custom ink colors can be mixed for $40. I'll post pics when I receive mine. Here's the proof they sent me after I sent them my artwork:

Thanks for the tip! I'll try to get in touch with him and see what they can do.
