Wrap Around Reusable Bottle Printing | Mutoh XpertJet 661UF

Custom reusable water bottles can sell for over $40.00 each and ink costs are only $.06

UV Printing gives you the freedom to print directly onto virtually anything.

Our line of UV Printers is ideal for not just small promotional products like pens and keychains BUT is also capable of printing more unique items like cylindrical bottles.

A rotary attachment for your Mutoh UV Printer is the perfect addition to an already versatile machine. This gadget makes it easy to make big profits by customizing blank reusable water bottles with wrap-around portrait prints.

Let’s break down some numbers.

Custom Reusable Bottle for Sale

After a quick online search on websites like Etsy, we found semi-custom reusable bottles retailing for $36.00.

AND they are not full color, wrap-aroundcustom prints. Some sellers allow you to personalize with a photo but only offer a couple of placement and style choices. 

With this kind of opening in the market, it’s easy to see you can get at least $40.00 each for a completely decorated water bottle.

UV Wrap Around Print Bottles – Costs to Produce

You can find blank reusable water bottles, just like the ones used in this video, on ColmanandCompany.com for $8.55 apiece.

Ink costs to print this full-color portrait is only $.06!

These bottles are sublimation ready, so they are basically ready to print without the use of any adhesion promoters.

Total costs of goods per tumbler = $8.61.

How much can I make selling Custom UV Printed Bottles?

It took about 8 minutes for this print. That means you can produce at least 7 of these personalized bottles an hour.

By retailing each custom water bottle at $40.00 a piece you generate $280 in revenues in just one hour.

Revenues per hour: 7 bottle per hour X $40.00/tumbler = $280

Materials Costs per 7 bottles: $60.27

Remember, our cost of the blank reusable water bottles + the ink is about $8.61 per bottle.

So, 7 printed bottles are going to cost you about $60.27 in materials.

After subtracting the cost of goods, you can put $219.73 in your pocket for just an hour of work!

Fully Decorated Water Bottle Return on Investment

Here’s the fun math on making printing bottles like these:

With an average financing price of $589 a month for our Mutoh XpertJet 661UF, you can make your monthly payments by selling less than 20 of these custom printed bottles a month! That’s less than one a day.

AND, this monthly goal is super obtainable – especially during the holidays!

Think of the opportunity of selling these in sets. Items like this would be a great gift for BOTH sets of grandparents – and your customer will probably want one to keep for themselves too!

If you retail these family portrait bottles in sets of 4 you only need to sell 5 sets a month to make your monthly payments…

Everything after that is pure profit!
