Question Question about Bottlecaps

I have been using my xyron to glue my images to the bottle caps and then I seal them. The problem is when I seal them it still leaves a small lip where tiny fingers could peal off the sticker. I ones I had puchased before I tried to make them were so tight there was nothing you could do to get them off. Is there something I should use that would be better. And I think the circle cutter I am using is s hair bigger than an inch. Could you tell me what or who makes the best circle cutter.

When we us the Envirotex stuff to seal it the lip is way less noticeable. we tried other types, but this one seemed to do the best job.

So your image is hanging over the edge of the cap? Sounds like your punch may be too big, or the caps you got are a little smaller than normal. When I make them my image does not hang over the edge of the top of the cap.

If the images is a tad larger than the cap then that will leave to much room for prying off. This is the best punch to use:

Also, it will never be sealed perfectly to the cap unless you put resin over the side. Most people dont' do it that way. If you have a good punch, it will help prevent the peeling off. Oh and definately use Envirotex Lite. That will help TONS.

I recommend the fiskers squeeze punch - the 1" size is the medium round n' round. The only problem is that the inter-workings are plastic instead of metal so I have gone through quite a few of them as it will break over time depending on the volume you are doing, but their customer service is really great you can email them a picture or mail it back and they will send you a brand new one.
