What do I need to supply for a colour match target?

Our expert colour matching team can match the colour you require to most targets supplied, from a Pantone reference to a physical sample of the target colour required.

How do I know that my existing caps and pumps would fit your bottles?

It is ultimately the customers’ responsibility for items being purchased from two suppliers to ensure they work together. However, we would ask that should you be using pumps or closures from another supplier that you supply us with drawings of the fitment and the manufacturers recommended neck detail along with physical samples. We are happy to perform cap/pump fit testing for compatibility prior to producing your order to ensure that the highest possible standard of packaging is supplied and we will notify you should we have any concerns.
