Printing On Glass Offers A Unique Opportunity

There is a lot that goes into printing on glass. The process is not complicated, but a lot depends on the type of technique utilized for getting that personalized and customized look for the surface. The three most popular techniques are etching, printing, and silk screening. However, there are a number of other methods that help get that perfect look and feel. Understanding how the process works helps many organizations and businesses decide whether or not printing on glass is a feasible option for the budget.

The main difference between etching, printing, and silk screening is the machinery utilized in the production of the design.
 
Silk screening is an affordable solution in part because it is suitable for many substrate surfaces. In addition, the materials utilized in the process are readily available, making the process more cost effective. This technique has been around for many centuries, providing realistic imagery and designs for a multitude of purposes ranging from decoration to advertising. Silk screening is great for large signs, doors, and windows, offering affordability combined with precision and durability.

Etching or engraving is a very elegant design requiring precision and skill. While etching and engraving have been around for a long time, techniques are always changing and laser etching allows for intricate designs not found with any other method. In addition, etching and engraving add a texture and feel to the design when it is completed. Regardless of the design choice by the purchaser, etching and engraving allow for a large scale design on a surface such as a door or window.

Inkjet printers have evolved to allow for transferring of an image or design to a surface of choice. This technique will range in prices according to the size of the medium and the image to be transferred. There are a lot of reasons why people choose inkjet printing on glass. The image is realistic and lifelike, making exceptional designs for decorative windows and mirrors.

There are numerous ways to get an image or design transferred to a medium. A reliable sign company is capable of providing the services necessary to get spectacular designs for a low cost. The machinery needed for better designs can be expensive, but a sign company already has the machinery and can provide lower prices for the consumer. Digital machines and acrylic machines offer a number of high quality choices for the purchaser.

What makes a sign company reputable and reliable? Look for a warranty or guarantee of work. Transferring a design to another surface can be tricky. Yes, printing on glass is a viable option, but mistakes do happen. Insure that the company one hires has a healthy refund or return policy. In addition, customer service should be readily available to answer questions or concerns, not only before the purchase, but even after that time.

Printing on glass offers a unique opportunity to transfer a design or image to something that can act as decoration, advertising, or marketing. Having better designs means working closely with a sign company to get the most accurate designs for the money. High tech options and old techniques combine to bring the consumer an outstanding product that will make an impact and last for years.
