Design and decoration have become increasingly important to allow products to gain individuality and improve shelf appeal. Most of Stolzle’s customers today increasingly rely on sophisticated and innovative decoration techniques to enhance and improve the branding of their products.
In recent years Stölzle decorated more than 150 million bottles annually and this output has been increasing every year as the glass group constantly invests in state-of-the-art decoration machines and techniques in all of its three decoration sites, in France, Great Britain and Poland.
STO’s customers can choose from a wide range of the major traditional decoration techniques to add value to their products. Stölzle’s key decoration disciplines can make standard products look very different. Techniques like partial spraying, or selective removal of spray on the bottle, as well as fluorescent and textured sprays make bottles look really exciting. Accessories like a branded logo, a shoulder piece, an aluminium plate or leather and even cotton sleeves make bottles look unique.
Latest innovations at Stölzle include sprayed metallisation, mask-spray, Carbon spray, UV cured spraying or printing, digital printing, printing with special inks (fluorescent under UV light, phosphorescent – glowing in the dark, and colour changing), mirror inks, embossed lettering, and IPET.
