Glass Bottle Design & Manufacture

Hi Guys.

I’m about to start a project with a client designing a custom glass spirit bottle. This is a new process for me, so I’m looking for some good information on the manufacturing constraints/technical parameters, any tips for prototyping, shapes to avoid design wise etc.

Plus any experiences people have had sourcing factories, negotiating per piece and run quantity rates.

Thanks in advance.

if you’re still interested, I may be able to help you in the mfg side.

I’d be interested in learning more about this too…

wvone - is there any online resources for glassware design you know of? or guidelines you’ve used before?

Just tripped over this site while looking for something else… lots of “guide” links.
