Stunning Screen Printed Bottle Decoration

The Universal Packaging Advantage

Applied Ceramic Labelling (ACL)

Applied Ceramic Labeling (ACL) is a screen printing process in which paints are applied directly to glass bottles and cured at high temperatures. The paints bond with the glass through this process resulting in a permanent label that is scratch and water-resistant.

ACL printing provides elegant design options impossible with traditional paper labels, like wrapping around the entire bottle and using the glass itself as a graphic element.

Unlike paper labels, Applied Ceramic Labels (ACL) are directly screen printed on the bottle, eliminating the risk of scuffing, giving your package a refined, smooth look.

“Dry Fly Distilling is now in our 10th year, all of which have had us partnered with our number one vendor, and friends from Universal in Vernon BC. Team Universal delivers packaging perfection to us on a consistent basis. They work hard to keep us on the cutting edge of packaging innovation.
