At Premier Impressions, we continue to partner with Klean Kanteen UK, providing branding services for their range of refill bottles and flasks for Bristol-based charity Frank Water.
Our team work closely with Klean Kanteen UK to understand the intended use of each product before advising which printing technique to use. As the bottles and flasks vary in size, shape and material, we use a variation of printing methods including pad printing, screen printing and laser engraving to apply the Frank Water brand to Klean Kanteen’s products.
We produced samples for the client, to allow them the opportunity to inspect both the quality and finish of the printed products before we began larger print runs.
Supporting the Klean Kanteen UK & Frank Water Partnership
Safe water charity, Frank Water is on a mission to build a water-secure future. As well as providing access to safe, reliable water, sanitation and good hygiene for communities overseas, they want to inspire individuals and organisations in the UK and beyond, to change their mindset and adopt a more sustainable approach to water – the world’s most precious resource.
They go about this in different ways: By educating people so that they understand the challenges and are inspired to find solutions; By enabling them to change their behaviour, consume less and refill, reuse and recycle more; And by providing people with thoughtful, practical waste-free alternatives to single-use.
Why? Because water security is under threat from population growth and climate change. Whilst developing countries are most at risk, water scarcity is fast becoming a global issue. As global citizens, we all have a part to play.
Frank Water and Klean Kanteen UK have worked together since 2015, over which time, the partnership has grown and developed in different ways.
Importantly, Klean Kanteen UK supports Frank Water’s safe water projects overseas by making an annual donation through the 1% for the Planet initiative. But it doesn’t stop there! The last few years have seen Frank Water and Klean Kanteen UK collaborate on Instagram giveaways and competitions, raise awareness of each others’ work across social media, create limited edition refill bottles to add to Frank’s online range of bottles and flasks, team up to take part in Frank’s annual Stand Up Paddleboarding challenge, and more.
For Frank Water, the relationship with Klean Kanteen UK is about more than just financial support. Frank Water Founder and CEO, Katie Alcott explains:
“Working with Klean Kanteen UK has been truly collaborative – a blueprint for charity partnerships. From day one, we’ve worked together, sharing ideas for collaboration, making introductions to each others’ contacts and getting involved in events, including our Festival Refill Service which has helped save hundreds of thousands of single-use bottles from landfill over the years. Their products are beautiful, functional and long-lasting – and we’re proud that our own range of refill bottles and flasks feature the Klean Kanteen stamp of quality. ”
