IN-HOUSE DECORATIONS

IN-HOUSE DECORATIONS

The appearance of a product and the design of the packaging are critical to the purchasing decision. Smart, individually designed packaging does what it takes to catch the eye, appeal to customers through all their senses and emotionalise end consumers through the colors, fonts, shape and more.

That’s why GEKA offers a wide range of highly effective in-house surface finishing techniques to align the packaging with your brand aesthetics and keep your product on trend. Every day, our team of decoration experts works together with our customers to develop new aesthetic masterpieces and reinvent old products with added-value finishes through our in-house silk screen printing, hot foil stamping, metallization & lacquering finishes.  

No matter which method you choose, GEKA is your go-to decoration partner.
If it’s possible, we’ll make it happen. 

METALLIZATION & LACQUERING: 

Our facilities for metallization and lacquering varnishes achieve a high-end product appearance paired with optimum product quality for a luxury finish. 

We use three different varnish methods: UV varnish, solvent-based varnish and water-based varnish.  We offer several effects, including matte, shiny, soft touch, color gradients, frosted and pearlescent finishes. As a sustainable alternative for an eco-friendly, high-end finish, we can use water-based coating. 

SILK SCREEN PRINT

The preferred decorative method for a matte color effect. Our state-of-the-art silk screen machines use an energy-saving UVLED drying system and can print on bottles and containers with cylindrical, conical or bulbous parts.

In addition, they are also equipped with an integrated, fully automatic camera system which checks the printing of the parts for completeness or errors. The machines are loaded fully automatically: the bottles are brought into the correct position before they are placed on conveyor belts for further transport. To ensure the quality control of the entire decoration process, the exposure and coating of screens take place in-house.

HOT FOIL PRINTING: 

We integrated the hot foil stamping in a fully automated high-speed production process at GEKA.  

The in-line decoration process allows us to produce bottles, assemble wipers and finish the decoration in the same line. For turnkey solutions, our customers can choose between 30 hot foil variants with various colors and effects. Ideal for time-to-market and price sensitive budgets. 

In addition, we can integrate our customers at an early stage of the decoration process to develop new foils that optimally complement the brand’s appearance. You can choose between shiny, matte, metallic, holographic and 3D foil effects. We are also able to offer two-colored hot foil decoration and a combination of hot foil stamping with silk screen print.

MULTI-COLOR DECORATION

For multicolored artwork our in-house heat transfer foil offers the ideal decorative option. We are able to apply metallized foils, foils with gradation, solid colors on round parts and even combinations of the above.

For irregularly shaped products it is also possible to use sleeve decoration if all-over decoration is required. 
This method enables all-over decoration of 360° from edge to edge and is available with multi-color print, color gradation and special effects like haptic, metallic or soft touch effects. It is a speed-to-market
option as all decorative effects are implemented in one step. 

MASTERBATCH EXCELLENCE

Without adding an additional coating, the packaging can be fascinating at the point of sale by using masterbatch effects.

We are recognised for our knowledge and wide range of possible effects for plastic moulding. We offer metallic masterbatch with extra high-glossy pigment, our exclusively developed metallic chrome masterbatch with an innovative type of metallic pigment to achieve real chrome surfaces, as well as flip flop masterbatch, where the color changes depending on the light, and marble masterbatch for maximum uniqueness. Decorating with masterbatch effects is an ideal alternative to time-consuming multi-step decoration.
