The Premier Wine Bottle Etching & Painting Company
12 April, 2018

Wine has been called liquid art; at Etched Images, our goal is to create works of glass art that reflect the quality and uniqueness of the bottles’ contents. Our artisans carefully deep wine bottle etching and hand paint your bottles with your logo, label or message, to create a lasting impression.

Established in 1992, Etched Images has earned a reputation for high-quality design execution, workmanship and service. 1992 also marked the year we introduced our innovative dipping wax, NoChip Dip®. Another early innovation, developed by David Lincoln, was a process for blackening bottles. Simulating a full bottle of red wine, a blackened bottle is a cost-effective marketing tool.

Staffed by skilled technicians and artists, Etched Images has in-house capability for, computer-enhanced design, with coloring and waxing techniques seldom found in standard etching organizations. We are truly proud of our relatively small but handpicked staff and our great reputation!

Every step of the wine bottle etching and painting process varies on the complexity of a given wine label.

Wine Bottle Blackening

The process we invented to give display wine bottles a filled appearance. Our internally blackened bottles simulate full bottles of red wine and are a very practical, cost-effective marketing tool. Unlike full bottles of wine, blackened display bottles have an unlimited shelf life. A U/V resistant coating on the inside of the bottle also makes them resistant to sunlight. Weight is minimized drastically reducing shipping costs.

A Tutorial on Using Tear Tape with NoChip Dip®
13 April, 2015

Are you using NoChip Dip or LowTemp Dip with your bottles, and looking for an even easier way to open the bottles? Many of our customers find that driving the corkscrew directly through the NoChip Dip and then using it as normal works great to open bottles, but if you're looking for another option, we also sell a custom-made tape that allows you to create a little "pull tab" that can remove the NoChip Dip from the top of the bottle like a zipper. Take a look at these pics to see what we're talking about.

First, two to three layers of the tape are wrapped around the top of the bottle, then the tape is cut with approximately one inch of tape left unwrapped.
Next, when the void above the cork is filled with NoChip Dip in preparation for dipping (a normal step in the dipping procedure), a small amount of wax is spread into the "Y" where the tail of tape creates the pull tab as seen in the picture on the left. The bottle is then dipped normally, creating the easy-to-use pull tab as seen on the right.
When the bottle is ready to be opened, you simply grasp the pull tab, and unwind the tape, cleanly separating the NoChip Dip from the bottle.
The piece of NoChip Dip left on the top of the bottle can be pulled off easily, granting access to the cork below!
If you're interested in trying Tear Tape with your next dipping project, you can order it from our online store here, or you can email or call her at (707) 252-5450.
