All About Printed Glass Panels

When looking for printed glass panels or tiles, you have many options to choose from.  You will find that many companies offer a huge range of products from shower doors to range top covers; from art pieces the size of a wall to a table top picture frame.  Whatever you can imagine being printed on glass panels, there is a process and a product out there that will best suit your needs.  This form of display fabrication has been increasing in popularity, not only in the corporate world, but in the private sector as well.

There are so many key benefits to using printed glass panels or tiles over traditional signage or display pieces.  First and foremost is the highly detailed quality it renders.  Coloring is so intense and can offer a three dimensional look.  It is incredibly easy to clean and very hygienic.  It is heat resistant, durable and non porous.  It is light reflective and often times will be resilient to fading.

Artwork can either be etched into or bonded onto a variety of printed glass panels and tiles.  There are several processes by which to choose from.   One such way is in the use of enamels, or fritting.  Fritting has been around for centuries.  Artists have moved from needing leaded stained glass for their enamels, to using float glass in the late 1950's.   This type no longer required the use of lead, but adopted other alloys such as tin.  Enamel can be applied by painting, silk screening or spraying.  

You may want to have a digital photo of a piece of landscape permanently bonded to a sheet of glass to give it that luxurious and life-like feel.  There is a way to use colored ceramic frit inks that will permanently bond during the tempering stage.  You may need the piece to be tempered or just annealed.  It may also need to have UV protection in the inks that are used in the processing.  Another choice would be from sandblasting.  This process is just as beautiful in its own way.  Etching can bring simplicity with the design, yet giving the piece depth and texture, bringing it alive.   

There are unlimited possibilities out there for the interior designers as well as the architectural graphic designers. Our society is very sensory driven by ocular and textural stimulation.  This style of display fabrication quite literally feeds on that palpable need.  Corporate offices are displaying their logos and messages using the latest in digital technology, making them stand out from the rest of the crowd.  It will also render to adding an artistically unifying atmosphere to any facility. This is a visually stunning and eye catching way to increase visibility of your products and services.   As you can see, custom printed glass panels or tiles make for stunning displays of artwork, remarkably effective office décor, and can be used for a multitude of marketing materials.
