Step 1: Design

design-napkin-imageHave a design idea already sketched out on a napkin? Or maybe you’ve had an artistic vision cooped up in your head for a while and just don’t know how to bring it out.

Our designers will consult with you, brainstorm with you and work with you through the whole process. We have an entire Creative Department dedicated to helping our customers look great in the marketplace. We’ll help you figure out your target audience. Pick a winning color palette.

Step 2: Printing

Once you’re happy with the design, or if you already have your own, we can print it on labels or screen print it directly on most products. If we designed your artwork, we designed it with your printing choice in mind.

If you’re printing a label all you have to do now is pick your stock, and there is a variety. You can print on a standard white label or, if the product allows, a cool clear label. You can choose from standard paper, durable vinyl, heavy-duty mylar or many other types depending on the usage and contents of the product. You can also pick a glossy or matte finish depending on the label. We can print all special shapes and sizes to perfectly match the contour of the product.

Although we will try to work with you on quantity, we have a minimum order for most projects. The minimum order for label printing is 2,500 of each design. The minimum order quantity (MOQ) for screen printing and label application varies by the size of the container.

Size/Capacity of Container Minimum Order Quantity
2 oz. and less1/2 Pallet
3 - 8 oz.1 pallet
9 - 16 oz.2 Pallets
17 - 32 oz.4 pallets
33 - 64 oz.4 Pallets
65 - 128 oz.8 pallets

If you are supplying your own artwork there are certain requirements we need you to follow to ensure the best printing possible. Only after you have submitted your artwork can we prepare a formal quotation that will present your pricing and all charges. Please call us at 630.629.6600 or email us at

Step 3: Application

ApplicationSo now you have your artwork created and your label printed. Unless you want to put all those labels on the product yourself, you may be interested in our label application service. Yes, we’ll apply the labels for you so that your product is delivered ready to go to market.

We can label almost any shape or size product and our high-speed can labeling machine can quickly label plastic or tin paint cans from 1/4 pint to 1 gallon.
