I've been looking around trying to find anywhere that can print low-volume (50-100) runs of custom crown caps. Found loads of US sites but nothing in the UK. Any ideas?

Cheers!

Hmmm. @baka Kind of disagree with closing this question. The UK is hardly a 'small geographic area', particularly with regards to brewing. The number of upvotes shows interest in good answers. How would you write such a question for something that requires a localised response? –  Tim Croydon Nov 2 '12 at 12:49
    
Sorry, I misinterpreted the various flags on a comment. –  baka Nov 2 '12 at 18:24

Maybe you've already seen the US-based Bottlemark, out of Houston, Texas. If you can't find a low-volume cap customizer in the UK, I would say that Bottlemark is your next-best bet. Shipping on 100 caps is estimated to be just USD$10 internationally.

Cheers mattozan. That certainly looks promising and reasonably priced. I'll have a proper look and accept as an answer if it works! –  Tim Croydon Jan 25 '12 at 13:01
    
I already gave my +1, but I just got an order I placed with Bottlemark. I can say the caps are excellent. The only things to keep in mind is that their caps are a white base, so the sides will be white. That, and order a few extra. I had a misprint or two in a bad of 70. Just slight things, but if you want them perfect, it won't hurt, since they're just $.12 each. –  fire.eagle Feb 17 '12 at 1:26
    
Delayed reply, but finally got around to ordering. Website very good and easy. Got 300 caps made in 8 different designs, total cost was $55.76. Didn't get charged by customs/Royal Mail either luckily, although have been on similarly priced items (would have been VAT + £8 = extra ~£15). Approx 2 week from order to delivery and look pretty good. Total cost ~11.9p per cap. Will def use again unless I can find comparable UK service. –  Tim Croydon Jul 16 '12 at 8:48
