Super Sustainable

Printing direct to bottle prevents the use of label backing and label substrates which create waste on the line and downstream within the recycling system. The ink used can also be recycled with the bottle at the end of life. Silk screen bottle printing is an eco-friendly option, as it uses minimal ink when compared with other labelling methods.


Silk screen bottle printing offers an economical way to print on plastic bottles, enabling high-volume production runs with minimal waste. By integrating it into the bottle production process, it eliminates the need for separate label substrates and significantly reduces costs. Setup expenses are kept to a minimum as there’s no need for printing plates, and the silk screen can be utilized repeatedly, providing long-term cost savings.

What is Silk Screen Bottle Printing?

Screen bottle printing is a popular technique used by bottle manufacturers to decorate cylindrical objects, such as bottles, tubes, and jars. It involves transferring ink onto the surface of the bottle using a screen that is stretched over a frame. The ink is forced through the screen onto the bottle using a squeegee, creating a pattern or design.

This printing method is highly versatile, allowing for a range of printing options. It is also highly durable, with UV inks available that provide resistance to fading and other environmental factors. If you are looking for a cost-effective and high-quality printing solution for your next project, screen bottle printing is worth considering as it consolidates multiple processes in one.
