Private Label Costing for 8oz Squeeze Tube Products

Based on 8oz / 227g Product

Flexible tubes can raise the profile of your product and give a sophisticated appearance to your business. Commonly seen in high volume commercial products, we offer this service to give you a market edge. In the past, to get a product in a squeeze tube required an investment in thousands of units.

Aquatech has eliminated such investment risks, offering a private label service in small volumes. A simple white tube creates a clean pallet for your logo and design. Most squeezable tubes are screen printed, but there are alternate labeling approaches that can look equally as good. (Please read labeling information below).

As the plastic tube material is soft and flexible, tubes can't use paper labels or films (like polypropylene) due to their rigid properties and a lack of springing back to its original shape. Typically they stretch or wrinkle.

There are two approaches to getting your label onto a tube.

A) Printed labels that are professionally printed on a clear label material from Fasson® called Primax. We machine apply as a wrap around the tube, then fill and seal.
Allowable label dimensions:
8 fl oz / 237 ml: 6 inch Height x 6.5 inch Width (including 1/2 inch overlap).

Please Note: When the tube is sealed, it creates unusual angles near the top. We would recommend concentrating the artwork on the main belly of the tube, rather than the whole height.

Vinyl labels work well on tubes (if they are kept fairly small) but you have to hand apply them. This method could save you money as they can be produced in small runs, helping you retain capital.

B) Aquatech will fill and seal the tubes without labeling. Using a small front and back label in vinyl, it is applied by hand afterward (this can be done by us or you can do it yourself to save more money). These labels can be printed digitally by a commercial printer or the stock can be bought online and made with a domestic inkjet/laser (watch for wet situations like showers, as ink jet will bleed).
Recommended or approximate label dimensions:
8 fl oz / 237 ml: 2.5-3.5 inch Height x 1-1.5 inch Width.

Labeling
Application is included, if professionally printed on roll stock for machine application with a #4 spooling direction. Hand application with printed sheet labels are not included. Back label layout require a product description and possibly how to use it, plus an ingredient list; which can be obtained from our web site. Remember: color and fragrance go at the end.

Colors
Stock product comes plain and its up to you if you want color. Being in a white tube, color would not be visable until dispensed. Custom colors require a Pantone® Color Swatch number for matching purposes. There will be a slight upcharge for color matching.

Fragrances
Various scents and fragrances are available. See our Fragrance section. Additional charges apply, and would vary between different types. Alternately, you can send us your fragrance to be added to our products. Some products might require adjustment and would need materials and time for alteration.

Modifications
If you intend to supply us your own bottle, jar, cap, pump or sprayer, pricing would be altered to subtract our container. Scent, actives or botanicals can be added with additional charge, depending on modifications we need to make to the product (pH, viscosity, clarity, etc.) Substitutions to the base formulation in the way of raw materials, oils or suppliers are not permitted with this program, requiring custom formulation and lab time.

Shipping
Charges for shipping are additional to these prices. Due to the number of clients, Aquatech does not offer warehousing, “pick and pack” services or “drop shipping” of these products to various customers.
