DPG labels

Packaging bearing a special mark that allows you to return the plastic bottle against a deposit.

A special symbol on the DPG label allows you to back up the disposable packaging and thus contribute to environmental protection. The system of backed-up disposable packaging is used by the German market.

Benefits of DPG labels

  • Thanks to the special DPG symbol on the label, in Germany, deposit-bearing PET bottles can be returned
  • Labels can be subsequently enhanced with finishing techniques: hot embossing, cold embossing, rotary screen printing, classic and special varnishes
  • The DPG symbol can be printed not only on self-adhesive materials, but also on shrink sleeves and wraparound labels

Method of production and printing

We print the DPG symbol with a special certified ink and under very strict conditions. The labels are produced on flexographic printing machines. We offer printing on self-adhesive materials or shrink sleeves in up to 10 colours. The DPG symbol can also be part of more complex graphics with different finishing options – of course, provided the specified standards are met.


DPG labels are applied in the beverage and food segments. They are intended exclusively for the returnable packaging market. The most common customers for whom we produce labels with the DPG symbol are breweries and soft drink producers abroad.

Required certifications

Since our certification in 2009, we have been one of a select few manufacturers of this technology within the EU and we are pleased to be able to offer you cooperation in this area. However, as a potential purchaser of these labels, you must also meet the DPG certification requirements. One of the conditions is to have a GLN – Global Location Number.



Adhesive papers

Adhesive paper labels matt, semi-gloss, or glossy. Semi-gloss paper is fairly typical. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.

Adhesive PE film

Adhesive polyethylene (PE) film is flexible and suitable for shaped substrates (bags, flexible surfaces). It is available in transparent or white versions with different types of adhesives.

Adhesive PET film

The properties of adhesive polyester (PET) film make it suitable for special applications. It is highly heat resistant and represents a possible solution for indoor and outdoor use. It is available in white, metallic, and transparent versions. The transparent variant has excellent transparency. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.

Adhesive PP film

White, pearl, transparent, or metallic adhesive polypropylene film stands out thanks to its strength. It just will not rip. However, this makes it less flexible and therefore more suitable for inflexible surfaces. Our most used type of film. Combined with a variety of adhesives, depending on the application.


Our most frequently used type of shrink sleeve material. Material with shrinkage up to 79%, thickness 45 mic.


Oriented polystyrene. Shrink sleeve material with a shrinkage of around 70% and various thicknesses.

BOPP film

Transparent or white BOPP film for the production of wraparound labels of different thicknesses: 35 – 45 mic.



Special production regime

Labels marked with the DPG logo are printed under a special security regime and subsequently stored as valuables.

Flexographic printing

HD Flexo printing gives us the option of up to nine additional units for downstream finishing production operations.


Hot or cold embossing, holographic elements, lamination and special varnishes, adhesive printing, rotary screen printing, and much more. Thanks to a range of finishing equipment, our variety of finishing options is really wide. Feel free to contact us with any enquiries, we will be delighted to discuss printing options with you.

Printing width

We can handle materials up to 440 mm wide. This allows us to print multiple productions side by side. This makes production more time and cost efficient.

Print quality

Quality is our alpha and omega. We are able to satisfy even the most demanding needs, thanks to the possibility of printing in up to 10 colours and to countless types of finishing. Let your product shine.
