    Default Printing on beer cans?

    I want to print some gag graphics on some Miller High Life cans for my dads 50th birthday. I have read a little on printing on curved surfaces and wondered if anyone had any tips.

    Basically I figured do a a flood stroke and either roll the can, carefully over the screen. I don't know if this is the best way, but that's my initial take at it.

    Would I need a specific ink for aluminum (keep in mind they're Miller High Life cans ) or would speedball WB ink work?

    Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    yeah, print stickers and put them on, you will never be able to do a decent print on the can - they are printed flat and then formed.
    A cylindrical printing rig would cost a lot.
    We have done this a bunch, for the movies, forgags, for weddings.
