Balancing Value and Values
Over the years, we’ve learned that our brewery and distillery partners expect good value but also want products that reflect the hand-crafted, high quality aspects of their business.
Our ceramic enamels and UV inks offer you choices that will stand up to dishwashing and scratches.
We use a no-lead base for our ceramic enamels, and all our inks are California Prop 65-compliant, including our UV inks, which are also certified organic. Through advances in digital printing, we’re also working to lower our carbon footprint during the decorating process.

Choosing the Right Inks and Processes
We’re proud to offer so many choices, but we know it can be overwhelming. Our brand consultants can help you navigate the right picks for your brand and budget, but here are some concepts to help get you started.
Screen Printing, Digital Printing, and Decals
These are many of the ways we apply art to a glass.
Screen printing is the industry standard and uses either UV inks or non-lead ceramic enamels to create a wide range of colors and designs.
Digital printing offers quicker turnaround, a wide array of colors via 4-color process (CMYK), and high-level printing capabilities - including full-wrap designs and intricate detail.
Decals are available with organic and ceramic ink and are typically used when direct printing is not an option.
UV-cured organic inks offer unlimited color capabilities, produce a high-gloss
finish, and provide excellent dishwasher durability.
Non-lead ceramic enamel (NLV) has a matte finish that is very scratch
Speciality inks also available, including glitter, UV blacklight, and glow-in-the-dark, iridescent, and color-changing options.
