We are certified to print DPG-PFAND marking on Self-Adhesive Labels.  


Several Optimum Group™ sites are certified to print special deposit markings (DPG) for Deutsche Pfandsystem GMBH. This means that the product is subject to a deposit and can thus be recognised by the deposit machines. For this reason, printing with this special deposit ink may only be carried out by authorised label manufacturers.


as manufacturer

The legal marking of deposit products consists of DPG marking in the DPG colour and the barcode with the Global Trade Items Number (GTIN). Before your company can order labels with a deposit logo, you must register with the DPG Deutsche Pfandsystem GmbH as a manufacturer and apply for a Global Location Number, abbreviated to GLN. After registration, you can order deposit labels (with corresponding GTIN) from us.

Every beverage producer/distributor must be registered with the Deutsche Pfandsystem GmbH (DPG) in order to order deposit labels.
