One of the many challenges facing the cosmetics, perfumery and personal care sectors over the coming years will be the need to offer sustainable packaging choices without having to compromise on a premium image and luxurious end product.

Our Spanish factory partner for aluminium bottles, Envases, has spent the past few months installing and commissioning the latest decoration machinery which will considerably enhance an already impressive offer.

As a result, we can now offer fully integrated in line silk screen printing. Additionally, haptic inks can be incorporated to achieve tactile effects with parts of a design ‘raised’ above the flat surface of the bottle.

Combined with spot varnish, this new technology can be used alongside existing offset printing to bring to life previously unachievable designs on aluminium bottles.

In line hot foil stamping further enhances artwork possibilities and, with the addition of the new silk screening technology, offers the choice of foil in many colours, not only silver and gold.

In summary, Envases now offers the world’s first integrated hybrid offset and silkscreen printing technology for aluminium monobloc bottles, making the green appeal of infinitely recyclable aluminium bottles compatible with a truly premium product.
