I have been working on updating my custom spotter bottle program. I had tried the "big boy" suppliers a couple of years ago and was not satisfied. Bottle is too small and limited area to print my company information. And they would only print my information in one set type style, now that did not seem "custom" to me at all.

Here is what I am doing:
Cost per ready for customer bottle $1.10 including shipping of supplies to me.
12oz bottles with disc lid (8oz seemed too small 16oz seemed to large)

Label designed & printed by Phillip Newell - May do a larger label next time since I am using the larger bottle. It will provide more area for customization.
Filled with encap green from Vac Away.

Photo is from left to right; My old spotter bottle, another 8oz bottle, my new bottles.

Overall I am happy with these new bottles and I am excited to start presenting them to customers. The cost is reasonable, about the same as nicer leave behinds, pens, custom magnets, etc.

Filling these things yourself? No money in that Bro! Some point it will cost you a trade off of labor on the wand! At which point..that will make ZERO SENSE!

Good to be back…I think. Cold weather stinks though. I missed a 10" snow storm here that is about as rare as you being speechless. :)

I like them John. I like the 12oz idea that is why I chose that size too. Now I had a professional graphic designer make my labels bright and cheerful but either work. I actually like your name "Stain Release". The important thing is that we utilize such a great tool to stay as top of mind go to cleaners. We have passed out over 10,000 free bottles in our area. Clients love them! Here is a copy of my label.

Correction. I meant 50,000 spotters.
