Silk Screen Printing or Decal Firing: Which is Better for Wine Bottle Decoration?

A smooth wine bottle is certainly not ideal; there are many ways to enhance its appearance. Take champagne, for example. Not only are there graphics and text on the bottle itself, but there are also rich graphics on the outer paper sleeve. So, are the graphics on champagne bottles printed with silk screen printing or decal firing? Which method, silk screen printing or decal firing, is better?

Silk screen printing on wine bottles is done using a silk screen printing machine, with the graphics determined by the silk screen mesh. The principle of silk screen printing on wine bottles involves the flow of ink from the silk screen mesh onto the bottle surface. Decal firing involves pre-made decal stickers, which are then completed through baking in a heating belt, high-temperature zone, and cooling zone. The graphics are determined by the decal stickers, essentially utilizing heat transfer printing technology.

The physical characteristics of silk screen printing on wine bottles result in thicker, more three-dimensional graphics. Compared to silk screen printing, decal firing may offer more abundant colors, as its cost is lower. However, the graphics may lack texture, vitality, and are prone to scratching off. Silk screen printing provides stronger adhesion for the graphics. To save costs, many inexpensive wine bottles use stickers attached to the surface. However, these are easily counterfeited in today’s society, where counterfeit prevention is paramount. Therefore, silk screen printing is more common on wine bottles, as the graphics are not easily removed and lend a higher-end appearance to the product.
