Design Tips

  1. Resolution. Clean, hi-resolution artwork and photographs look best. If you have a low resolution file/image, the outcome may look pixelated and sloppy. Please keep this in mind when uploading your artwork. The larger the image, the better it will print out.
    Tip: Uploading a photo much larger than the design area and scaling it down to the desired size in the Online Designer is much more effective than using a photo that "already" looks like the right size on your screen. Monitors require much less resolution than the printing process.
  2. Safety Margins. Please try to keep text elements at least 1/8 inch away from the edge. In the production process, the product may shift slightly. Keeping it a safe distance from the edge could prevent art from getting cut off.
  3. Color. Bright vibrant colors with good contrasting artwork will always stand out and look great! Try to stay away from dark greys on a black background or white text on light backgrounds if you are looking to have a design that stands out. Things that may look "ok" on a computer screen may not transfer over in print as well. Your text must pop out and look clear against the background.

Bottle Opener Design Tips

Can I use photographs on a Kolorcoat™ opener?

Yes, you may! As long as the image is high enough resolution to print (300dpi at full size), it will look acceptable on an order.

Are there pre-made designs or backgrounds to choose from?

Yes. We are adding new designs every week. These designs include basic background colors, patterns and common imagery including sports images, tattoo art, tye-dye and more. We currently offer more than 100 backgrounds to choose from, or you may start with a basic color and build your own. You may also upload your own background artwork and design anything you can imagine.

Do I have to have the same design on both sides of the opener?

No, you don't. You can print the same design on both sides, a different design on either or even leave on side blank. We leave the creativity of your design up to you.

Are there any art charges or design charges for making an opener with the online designer?

Other than the price of the openers themselves, there are no additional setup or art charges when you choose a Kolorcoat™ option. If we have to do major art changes, which is rare for openers, we will contact you to make recommendations.

Tip: Imagine how well your opener will look from ten feet away.

Who would want a Kolorcoat™ opener?
