Printing either enamels, inks or precious metals, one color after another, thru stencils or screens onto a rotating glass until the design is totally reproduced. A heat treatment vitrifies or fixes the design onto the glass – at around 600 Celsius degrees for enamels or 150 Celsius degrees for inks.

It’s also called “transfer”, representing the image that is printed separately and then removed from its backing paper to be applied to the final product. This unique manufacturing process uses special pigments called ceramic oxides that, when fired in a kiln (580º - 620º Celsius), permanently bond with the substrate (base item).


The bottles are dipped in an acid base solution which superficially attacks the glass surface creating a matt and frosted aspect. Acid etching can be either an all over effect or just partially frosted areas can be incorporated into a design. This is achieved by first masking the transparent area.



For colored effects containers are sprayed with either liquid or powder (resin and dyes). Lacquering can be total, partial or with a fade out effect also offering the choice of: matt, glassy, opaque, translucent, soft touch, metallic… The palette of hues and colors is wide reaching; imagination is the only limit…


AKA precious metal stamping, precious metal stamping is a dry printing process. In stamping a mettallic or color pigment is transferred from a roll of foil to the container by way of heat and pressure. The heat and pressure releases the pigment to the container to form a permanent bond with the glass.

Embossing is actually a part of glass and decoration. Embossing your bottles gives dimensionality. An embossed logo or pattern is directly beveled, or sculpted to make it raise against the glass. A decoration with texture and dimension brings that 'something more' to your bottle.
