ImagInk Printed Glass

The ultimate solution for UV stability in large format, decorative glass applications

Expand the possibilities of decorative glass with ImagInk digital ceramic printing. Ceramic inks are printed directly onto the glass surface and then toughened or heat strengthened, fusing the inks permanently into the glass. The outcome is a scratch resistant surface guaranteed not to fade or discolour for 25 years.

FAQs

All our most commonly asked questions. Can't see your answer? Please call us on 1300 040 799 or get in touch via contact form below.

What makes the ImagInk printed surface so durable?

The ImagInk process uses ceramic inks printed directly onto glass surfaces. The glass panel is then heated to dry the inks, toughened, or heat strengthened in a glass furnace. This process permanently fuses the inks to the glass, resulting in a scratch-resistant, durable, and vibrant finish.

What is the warranty for ImagInk?

ImagInk printed glass comes with a 25-year warranty against fading and discolouration from UV damage.

Does ImagInk use a CMYK printing process?

ImagInk ceramic inks are primarily an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color gamut, compared to the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) colour gamut commonly used for commercial printing. For more information on color accuracy, please download the ImagInk Artist Guide.

What file formats are accepted for submission?

ImagInk accepts various file formats, including PSD, TIFF, JPG for photos, and AI, EPS, PDF for vector graphics.

Does Cooling Brothers provide support or guidance during design and project planning?

Yes, absolutely. We prefer to work closely with you throughout the full process to ensure the best outcome when we come to print. We have an experienced graphic design team to assist clients through their project. A good starting point is our ImagInk Artist Guide for insights into color accuracy and file preparation.

What is Dip-Tech?

Dip-Tech is a world leader and innovator in manufacturing glass printers that use ceramic inks. They invented the world’s first digital ceramic printer for glass in 2005, a technology that powers the creation of the digital glass printing industry globally. ImagInk is proudly powered by a Dip-Tech printer.

How do I select the right decorative glass solution for my project?
