Recommendations for place to print steel can.


Hi all.




I have been looking though the yellow pages but this is not
your standard printing job!




 




I have about 1000 cans (about the same size as a CRC 5.5 Can
(no it’s not crc)) that a customer has asked if I can recommend some one to do
the job, so being the good geek I said (in my head: yes it cant be to hard,
must be some one out there, yellow pages) yes I think I could find some one for
you. He said I have been looking for about 4 weeks :P




Any way now it’s just annoying me.




What they want is to get a can printed with logo and some writing.
It’s cooking oil for a trade show. It’s a NZ product and they want to keep it
all in NZ and the place that packs it over here gets the printing done in good
old china.




Keys points:




Round can about same size as CRC can.

colour print.

done in NZ.
about 1000 in number.

 

I'm talking to metal image at this point.


would like some one in Christchurch.




In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

How annoying! There used to be a radio ad that went:

A:We can print on ANYTHING!
B: Anything? What about glass?
A:ANYTHING!
B: Plastic? Metal?
A:ANYTHING!
B: Doors? Cars?
A: ANYTHING!!!!!!

Too bad they couldn't print their name onto my hand so I could remind you. Though when I typed print to anything into google it came up with a company called image lab that may help you out. Dam you OP, that jingle is going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the night now.

Only other way is to get label printed onto vinyl which is then fixed to the can, (simular to a baked beans can), or does it have to go straight onto the can.?

Sounds like a client of mine, Colourworx.  They are based in Auckland, and I know one of their slogans is "we can print on anything."

Contact them, ask for Jax, say I sent you.

Hope this helps.

Also used to be a guy in Auckland. He is a photographer who used to etch photos onto glass or aluminium. He could possibly be of assistance to you.  His email address is
