High Resolution (up to 1,500 dots per inch), large format (up to 96” x 150”) direct-to-glass digital printing of gradients, graphics and images
Patent Pending technology allows Imagic to print directly to glass in the highest resolution (1,500 dpi) in the industry. The vast majority of glass fabricators that print to glass use a method that deposits a ceramic ink on to the surface of the glass. The ink must be cured in a tempering oven with the advantage of increasing the tensile strength of the glass. The disadvantages are that the ink is exposed on the surface of the glass, the resolution is much less and there is great difficulty achieving vivid or opaque colours.
There are a number of benefits to our technology. The ability to print in multi layers (up to 7 layers of different opacities), smooth gradients with no banding (lawnmower effect), varying opacities from clear to opaque within the same piece of glass, the ink is safeguarded between layers of glass or with a protective coating behind. Additionally our print technology allows us to print on annealed glass.
