I am trying to find a company that makes these recycled blue vented containers. They come in 8 and 16 oz sizes. I am having no luck maybe someone else is better at searching out these kind of things?

This is the retail place but we want to get these containers direct from the factory the produces them.

Also on the same topicish.

We need to make a print on the cover of these containers. In the past we would just write what we needed to know with a sharpie but that is old fashion and we would like to be able to get the info we want on the caver along with our logo. We already tried using a stamp but the ink for stamps even permanent wipes away even after sitting for a day. Anyone have any other ideas for printing on these covers?

One thing we thought about was using stickers but even being cheap after 10K or more the price starts to add up.

Thanks for any help!! :)

Sorry, forgot to mention that Fabri-kal makes these containers new and we have dealt with them in the past. However there is another company that makes these containers out of recycled plastic and this is the company we are looking for.

Try Dart Container in Mason, Michigan. http://www.dartcontainer.com/
They make all sorts of plastic and Styrofoam cups and containers. I'm pretty sure they make your container too.

I'd check with a silk screen printer, or see if you can modify an inkjet printer to do the job.

I don't think an inkjet would work. They use the same sort of ink as the ink pads we have been trying. I'll look into the silk screen printer though.


How do the big companies print stuff like this? I am sure they have some huge expensive printer but I am more interested in what kind of ink they use.

The only thing we have found that drys and stays on so far is a sharpie marker.
