We use modern equipment, latest technology and high quality original inks and paints, allowing decoration with any degree of complexity. We use more than six color printing, decoration of gold, silver, platinum, frosting and coating of different colors and degrees of transparency or density.
We’re leading in these techniques:
Etching (chemical frosting, matting) is a technology based on a chemical treatment of the container’s external surface. The result is a loss of transparency by the glass, which becomes pleasantly rough to the touch. This technique can be applied to glass containers of any size and shape.
We have developed and implemented a unique multi-stage technology which enables to conduct the entire process of etching in fully automatic mode, including the preparation of working solutions, satining itself and final refinement of glassware. See more etched bottles
Coating is one of the most innovative technologies of glassware decoration. It stands for painting of glass items using the methods of electrostatic spraying and airstream atomization. The fully automatic equipment we use allows us to perform a complete, partial or transient painting of glassware, followed by low temperature drying.
Range of colors for coating is very wide. From semi-transparent tones to the solid colors, mat or glossy shades. In most designs spray coating is being utilised in a combination with other decorative methods, especially screen-printing to optimise its elegance. See more coated bottles
This innovative technique brings an additional dimension of beauty to the elegant effect that frosting, metallizing or coating techniques provide to your bottle. The look can be truly spectacular. Some of the effects that can be created with Masking include:
- Creating transparent, dropped-out patterns on the frosted, metallized or coated bottles.
- Opening a ‘window’ into a frosted, metallized or sprayed bottle where the artwork can be viewed from both the outside and the inside of the bottle.
- Building depth of decoration by printing selectively over masked sections to create the feeling of movement in the design.
The metallization is a process that allows to achieve metallic effects such as gold, platinum, silver, copper and many others onto a glass surface. With this technique it is possible to treat even the most complex surfaces, obtaining a complete coating of the substrate. The ultra thin coating is resistant to low temperatures, moisture, mechanical damage and scratches. The materials used are environmentally friendly and suitable for food packaging.
The products, once metallized, can be further customized with silk-screen printing, pad printing or hot foil stamping.
→ PAD PRINTING
This method provides opportunity to print on surfaces where the use of other decorating technologies is difficult. Pad printing is perfect for decoration on uneven or hard-to-reach by other decoration methods areas of glassware surface. See more printed bottles
→ SCREEN PRINTING
The screen printing is the most common and effective decoration method. Durable inks are applied directly onto the container and are baked at different temperatures or cured with Ultra Violet light if UV inks are used. The end result is a design that won’t tear or scuff. There are huge variety of inks – thermoplastic inks, inks containing precious metals, alcohol resistant, inks that allow the bottles to be washed in a caustic solution and reused in refillable applications, etc. Designs can be printed using any color desired up to 6 colors, including process CMYK.
The screen printing combines well with etching and hot stamping techniques, thus creating stunning visual effect. See more printed bottles
→ HOT STAMPING
The method is based on applying of special foil on the surface of a glass container under pressure and with certain temperature. Resultant image has an excellent visual effect and tactile sensation.Wide spectrums of colors are available for this mode of decoration technique with combination of textures including gloss, shimmer, matte and complex hologram. Hot stamping is the best alternative to the expensive inks containing precious metals (gold and platinum).
This method is also indispensable in the decoration of coated or etched glassware, when the high-temperature firing is not allowed. See more hot stamped bottles
