The Universal Packaging Advantage
Beautiful & Durable 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.
Beautiful Design Options
ACL printing provides elegant design options impossible with traditional paper labels, like 360 degree wraps and use of the glass itself as a graphic design element.
Durable Baked-On Labels
In contrast with paper labels, Applied Ceramic Labels (ACL) are screen printed on the bottle, eliminating the risk of scuffing to provide a smooth, refined look.
Greener Packaging Solution
Unlike plastic bottles, after the first use screen printed glass bottles can be recycled or reused over and over again so they’re gentler on the Earth.

“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. The best thing I can say about Universal is that I completely trust that everything I get from them will be without worry or stress. They make packaging easy, and that is saying a lot.”

FoUNDER, CHIEF MARKETING & SALES OFFICER
“Universal Packaging has been a great partner to work with in developing our floral Riesling bottle. We were particular about color and they worked to get the exact hues we envisioned. We also wanted to put a bee on the sloped neck of the hock bottle, surely not easy, but they accomplished it giving the bottle the final, stand-out touch. They are a five-star partner.”
