Traditionally, glass printing was performed using screen-printing. Current technology has now evolved at such a rate that printing directly onto glass has sparked much interest from the architectural and interior design world. The application of digital printing is the latest development in the field of interior glass. This technology continues to improve so that larger glass surfaces can be printed, the prints become more sustainable, more resistant to UV, and also the brightness and the number of pixels increases with a positive effect on the quality of the image.

Individually designed glass surfaces are very sought after especially by architects in facade design and in use by municiple authoritiesas glass is multi-functional, easy to care for and extremely versatile in its design and use.

One could even claim that digital printing is revolutionizing the use of glass in interior architecture.  The eight color print technology provides an extended color palette, custom color matching, and smoother color transitions.  16-bit rendering allows for extremely smooth gradient tines and effects.   Using UV cured inks allows for applications both indoor and outdoor. This exciting new technology is welcomed by interior designers and architects pursuing for customized and tailor made solutions to decorate offices, stores and homes.

Direct imaging allows designers and architects to put large scale, high resolution images directly onto glass, metal, tile, wood, plastic, many laminates and more. Just about anything flat up to two-inches thick can be imaged. Doors, table tops, glass signs, wall plaques etc.

Digital printing advantages

Eliminating of screen cost, in digital printing there is no need for production tools, such as: photo-tools, printing screens or stencils. These costs are eliminated. Digital printing improves time to market and significantly shortens job production time, due to the elimination of the preparation time of the films and screens, as well as the elimination of the extensive set-up times of traditional production equipment. The use of digital printing solutions provides a competitive advantage over other glass processor companies.
