Digital printing on glass
Useful tips in regards to glass
The method introduced in recent decades in such applications is screen printing with the option of silk screen printing being the most popular one. On the surface to be printed, a perforated film bearing the imprint of the print is being placed. By using the appropriate inks in one or more layers, the desired result is achieved. Each film can be used in many reproductions of the same theme. There has been a radical renewal in the glass printing industry recently with the advent of digital printing technologies. The search for new solutions was primarily to address the two dominant points that the conventional glass printing method is lacking. The cost of printing, especially for small prints and a limited number of copies, is prohibitive. In addition, it restricts creative expression due to technical weaknesses when printing colorful images.

Advantages of digital printing on glass
Compared to traditional glass printing methods, the digital printing technique has several significant advantages:
- It saves time, cost and space due to the absence of stencils. The necessary use of intermediate films to transfer the subject onto the glass, as in the conventional method, is accompanied by time-consuming and costly processes: design and production of the stencil itself, pre-print preparation, architectural applications in exterior and interior spaces.
It is used in faces, floors, furniture, space separators, showcases and in any other application or architectural composition the glass imposes. The aforementioned uses serve aesthetic purposes, as a means of decoration, advertising, promoting the logo or product of a company, as well as being functional.
They may provide protection from direct sunlight as a shading agent, limit blurring effects, and even ensure privacy in selected areas / surfaces. The reduced cost, speed of production and high quality of the finished product make the new method highly competitive, ensuring its introduction in the glass industry.
