Not all glass is the same:
Printing on real glass
Real glass is mainly used in construction, for example in shop windows or large-area room dividers. You can also have real glass printed directly by us.
In most cases, however, it makes more sense for us to apply printed and cut self adhesive films to the glass. These can be resistant for a long period of time. Nevertheless, they can be easily changed if necessary. Texts, logos, elements in frosted glass look or even pictures and photos can be realized here, without the need of directly printing inks on the glass. Learn more here Glass decor
Printing on synthetic glass
Synthetic glass, on the other hand, is usually printed directly onto its surface. In most cases it is more light weighted and cheaper than real glass. Synthetic glass is also easier to process, such as milling into contours, drilling or thermal bending.
Acrylic glass, the most popular synthetic glass in printing
Acrylic glass, also known as Plexiglas or PMMA, is highly transparent and very suitable for printing door signs or backlit illuminated advertising. Also interior design has discovered printed Plexiglas for itself, for example for printed tabletops or high-quality art prints as wall decor. In addition to crystal-clear transparent acrylic glass, it is also available in a whitish frosted glass look or in bright colors.
Other crystal clear plastics for printing
Polycarbonate is very impact resistant and is therefore often printed for theft-proof showcases or safety enclosures for machines.
There are also other plastics with a crystal-clear or frosted glass look, such as PET or polypropylene PP.
Many plastic glasses are also available with an anti-reflective surface.
