Glass Printing Possibilities

Glass Canada and Dip-Tech come together to explore the technology, the possibilities of digital glass printing, and points of consideration when entering the market.

The article was published in Glass Canada’s October 2014 edition.  

“Emerging less than two decades ago, digital ceramic printing on glass is a relatively new technology that uses ceramic inks to apply imagery, a pattern or text to the surface of flat glass. Initially, the technology only printed with black ceramic ink and was mainly used in the transportation industry. Over time, a wider range of ceramic ink colours was developed and the printing technology became more advanced, enabling the digital mixing of these colourful inks. These advances paved the way for the first application of digital ceramic in-glass printing in architecture, and, in 2007, the glass designer Bernd “Bernie” Hoffman collaborated with the glass processor Interpane Sicherheitsglas to print a satellite image of the town of Eiserfeld on the Eiserfeld Municipal Bank glass façade. Today, digital ceramic printing is used to print any design on glass, and is ideal for both transportation and architectural glass applications.”
