Printing seam line on cosmetic tube

Have you ever considered to print a color block or graphic around cosmetic tube when make designing? Over 10 years’ experience in cosmetic packaging, huaxin sees many clients like this design. The printing effects really look very nice, but it has a little defect -printing seam line and hard to avoid. Below are different printing seam lines on PE extruding tube and some improvements.

1. Print a circle of color block on PE extruding tube. There will be a 1.5 mm width overlapping joint line, see below pic. This effect looks not bad and many clients think they are fine. How do you like it?


2) Print graphic around extruding PE cosmetic tube, see below pic. In this case, the 1.5 mm overlapping part of seam line looks like dislocation. This is hard to improve. Usually we do not advice customer to design like this.


Based on above two situations, if customers don't like the overlapping or dislocation, it's a good way to choose PBL or ABL tube. The overlapping and graphic of seam line can be matched very well, see below pics; just it has a welding line.
