    Default production help

    Hey pals,

    So the store I work at wants to have bike baskets that you can shop with. I've designed an insert that sits at the bottom of the basket but we have no idea what to make it out of. We were thinking metal with a sticker stuck to one side or would screen printing the image onto metal be an okay option? The other thing I thought of was a thick laminated plastic kind of like a place mat. It needs to be something that can be cleaned and pretty weather/use proof.

    tiny run (20)




    Any ideas?!

    Direct solvent Inkjet Print to PVC or Polystyrene, holes punched in each corner, zip-tie to the basket.

    Done.

    I would look in to Polypropylene sheets, it's both offset and screen printable as well as die cuts really nice. Available in colors and different opacities. It is also recyclable and with some research you could probably find a manufacturer that uses recycled content.

    If you have difficulty finding a screen printer, any offset printer should be able to handle it.

    if you are only doing 20 the inkjet would be the cheapest way to get the colours. PVC would be easiest, but put a clear laminate on it, otherwise your ink will be scratched off in a week.

    Yeah, I didn't see that it was just 20. Digitally print that and get it coated.

    I agree, get a couple of cans of one shot and some nice lettering brushes and go to town. Every one could be unique.

    Print them out of a large format printer on white adhesive back vinyl. Laminate them and then apply the decal to coroplast (yard sign material)
    then put gromments on them (3 on top 3 on bottom) the zip tie them to the baskets.
