Full-Colour Barrels To Boost Your Branding
We are less good at reinventing the wheel. On the other hand, we are very good at combining different forces to make it a success. This is basically what our company was built on and still exists today. Six years ago, when Onno, one of the founders of the former company name BarrelQ, went looking for high-quality suppliers with specialties in oil drums and printing. To this day we work with these two suppliers with the most fantastic results.
From the moment that an order for full-colour barrels is received by us, it is processed in the system by your dedicated Account Manager. Once a month, fully dependent on the busyness of the purchasing season, we plan a full-colour wrap run, as we like to say. The Account Managers will receive an end date for the coming month that all orders for full-colour barrels must be received. These are then collected on a joint board with descriptions, quantities, and designs. From this point on, we pass the baton to the specialists. The empty drum plates are personalized at our drum supplier, after which they must dry for about a week. Then the plates go through the machine and are beaten as barrels.
We consciously choose not to personalize barrels that have already been beaten in advance, since the design will then not fit nicely over the relief of the barrel. In addition, by using this method we also have the possibility to produce smooth-walled barrels or barrels with only beads (big hoops) or with beads and drums (big and small hoops).
