A collection of handy tools and guidelines to help you understand the printing process and how it impacts packaging. We hope these tools will help make your packaging, design and print decisions easier.
These tools will enable you to visualize colors, build a virtual printed bottle or jar with your artwork, measure your container accurately for print areas and layout and get an Online Quote. We've also included a set of printing guidelines to help you with the design process.
Select a tool from the list below and put it to work for you. Please let us know if there's a specific tool you need that's not on the list, and we will do our best to create one. The tools are built to be intuitive and self-explanatory. Input is always welcome. Please feel free to contact us with your comments or questions.
The Color Tool can be helpful to determine possible conflicts between packaging, product and print colors. Plug in your product color, choose a bottle material or texture, put in up to 6 possible print colors, and discover what different color / substrate / product combinations look like.
You can Measure Your Container to determine the print size and layout for your artwork. You can then grab the resulting numbers and plug them into your design.
The Image Wrapper, can be used to import a .jpeg, .gif or .png of your artwork, and directly apply it to any bottle or jar with the proper distortion. It allows you to see what your actual artwork will look like once it is printed on a bottle. You can adjust how the artwork wraps with the distortion controls provided.
You can create your own print cost estimate with our Online Quote Tool. Use this tool to generate an estimate that you can send to Amen Packaging for review. You can also take a look at our complete screen printing price list. If your container or material is not listed, you will need to contact us directly with your request for a quote.
