How Your Custom Hip Flask Is Printed And Made
Why engrave a generic flask, when you can design your own hip flask? When you upload your design onto the online interface, print technicians use a specialist method to fuse your art into the stainless steel of the flask. By infusing the ink into the steel, it creates a lasting print, that will not peel. To create a highly polished and professional finish, we print your design on the front of the flask and wrap it around the edges. The back is left plain, but this wrap-around effect has a gentle transparent finish, which looks almost feathered out. The final result is flawless, chic and gorgeous.
If your custom hip flask gets a little dirty or dusty, simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth and mild soapy water.
Your design is printed onto the front of the flask, and gently wrapped around the sides. This means there are no harsh finish lines, and instead your design looks natural and smooth. The feathering technique actually makes the print look like it is part of the steel. If you have important details around the edges of your design, then we recommend adding a little space around them. This will ensure that no details are lost to the beautiful feathering effect.
As we print your design directly onto the metal of your custom hip flask, we would recommend using strong colours. Soft or pale colours may not show up as well as you are expecting, however darker colours will produce a much more pronounced design.
Reviews for Hip Flask
based on 3 customer reviews
Contrado delayed the shipping by a couple days as they carry out internal quality control, and the first version didn't mean their standard for whatever reason. The second version that was delivered was of good quality. The printing of my custom picture onto the metal work is done well, and looks like it'll last a good while. I would use Contrado again.
I uploaded my own image to be printed on a hipflask and I could not be happier with it. It looks absolutely stunning! The online tool was also so easy to use. Thank you so much...this will make my best man very happy.
Hip flask was really great. Got it for a friends birthday and she loved it. The image printed on so well and it looked so good

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
