Maverick is dedicated to helping you with any or all of your capsule needs and manufacturing the best products for your business.
We are a local business in Ukiah, CA with an abundance to offer. Our facility and office is local so we have total control and can check on your project from inception to delivery to ensure quality and excellence every time.
Custom Color Matching
Every capsule project is printed with custom mixed inks developed by our professional ink technicians. Our technicians are able to match an array of different color samples, ranging from Pantone
swatches, labels or other packaging material.
We offer pre-press appointments for difficult color matching and press checks to ensure consistent color. Our eletronic ink management system stores all of our custom formulas to ensure a perfect match every time.
Outstanding Production Team
At Maverick, we print and form 100% of our capsule orders. This assures top quality and faster turn around for your bottling needs. Each new project goes through a thorough process of evaluation for optiminum production specifications, print layout and efficiency for both Maverick and our customers.
Our In-House Design Team works closely with both Print and Capsule Production and endeavors to optimize your artwork for the best possible replication.
In order to reduce our environmental impact, increase pricing stability and to decrease project lead times, Maverick has developed processes for providing proprietary versions of both Polylaminate and Almost Tin™ material at our Ukiah facility. This material is laminated and inspected on-site to provide a quality American made option for our capsules.
Polylaminate capsules are comprised of a three layer aluminum-polyethylene-aluminum seamed skirt and aluminum top disc. They provide a professional and cost effective packaging solution. Polylaminate and Almost Tin™ capsules can be hot stamped and have a variety of top artwork options. Both substrates can have a C-Cut tab added for easy removal.
Our Almost Tin™ capsules are comprised of a more durable three layer material that is a great recyclable and less costly alternative to tin capsules. Almost Tin™ is optimum for bottles that present challenges with spin down (this also includes bottles for distilled spirits, which have custom shaped necks).
PVC / PET(G)
PVC capsules can be an economical alternative to traditional Polylaminate or Tin capsules. PVC comes in an array of colors, which can provide more options for artwork layout and design possibilities. These capsules are comprised of a PVC skirt and an aluminum or clear top disc. PET(G) capsules can be a more environmentally friendly capsule option. The process for printing both PVC and PET(G) is the same, as well as forming. Tear tape is available for both substrates.
ChampagneChampagne capsules are a combination of a three layer Polylaminate body and a paper foil or aluminum top disc. They provide a clean and premium finish to champagne packaging. The skirts can be printed or hot stamped. We also offer a pebbled texture that is applied during our forming process. All champagne tops are printed. Ventilation holes (grillages) and tear tape are also available for these capsules.

PVC capsule without a top disk.

Hot stamp foil can be applied to all capsule substrates but PET(G). Hot stamp foil is ordered based on the foil callout indicated by the customer and cannot be shown in our draw down process. We generally match KURZ or Crown hot stamp colors, but can special order material upon customer request (this may or may not be subject to testing prior to forming).
Size / Function / Fit
A bottle sample is required for all Maverick capsule projects to ensure customer satisfaction. We provide accurate sizing based on the bottle dimensions, placement of any additional labels (neck labels), desired fit and the type of equipment used during bottling. Each bottle is reviewed for optimum placement of removal features and custom artwork by our team prior to production.
Project Information Needed:
Bottles are a very important part of our process in making a capsule. To ensure the
best possible fit for your capsule we ask that you submit a bottle sample. This
guarantees a correct fit for your capsule and can be more precise then
manufacturing based on mold numbers that are not finish specific.
Artwork should be provided in a workable format for Adobe Illustrator (.ai or .pdf) with fonts outlined
or font files provided. Artwork may be provided via CD or e-mailed to our
Design Team (email@example.com). If the capsule size and substrate have
been predetermined, an illustrator template can be sent to you or your
designer, if desired. If any other packaging information (label or electronic
file) is available, please submit it to ensure that we can provide you with the
best option available.
Please provide us with a label, PMS color, or sample to match for color as well as the
finish (sheen) desired. (Maverick does not guarantee color matching to KURZ
color samples unless the job specifically calls for hot stamp material.)
