Okay, this is probably the wrong forum for this and if not possibly the wrong area, but I'm wanting to do some generic shots of different products. Does anyone know of a good way of removing silkscreened product ID's from plastic bottles without ruining the product surface?

Thanks!

Dave
Are you trying to de-product something with a recognizable shape? Or are you trying to not show a specific product but not advertise it?

I want to do things like, generic tube of toothpaste, generic facial cream, generic shampoo bottle, generic hand lotion, etc...but a lot of this stuff with decent containers (especially toothpaste) have the logos and stuff silkscreened on. I want to know of ways to remove this stuff without damaging the packaging so that I can wither do the shots blank, or digitally add my own generic branding...

Thanks!

Dave when I was getting my BFA in Graphic design we would always create new labels and paste them over a product. Sometimes you could use acetone and remove some screened images as long as you didn't let it stay on too long on plastic items. Creating an a label in PS or illustrator you can pri nt on transparent film and od cut and pastes over the de-nuded product. Haven't tried anything like this in a while but labels printed on transparent film would seem to be the best bet.

If you search the web I bet you can come up with plastic container suppliers/manufacturers that have a bigger variety than you ever thought. Who might even ship you free samples with no labels, no markings etc.

I found this one to get you started...under plastic containers, wholesale...with Google

http://www.inmarkinc.com/

hope this helps

Stu

lets see the results.

Might also try various solvents like methonal alky, PD680 (dry cleaning fluid), maybe even some retail paint thinners and removers, as many of the will not attack the plastic but will the paint/ ink. In any event be careful, can be nasty sh*t!

Are there legal aspects?

Most companies get a copyright or even patent on a bottle, tube, or container design. You might need a release of some sort to use the photos you take in any commercial way. Have you taken that it into consideration?
