On-Site Systems Architectural Glass’ state-of-the-art direct glass imaging allows for large scale, high-resolution images to be directly printed on to glass, metal, tile, wood or plastic. It's a brand-new capability for decorated glass that only a few companies in the country possess.
The imaging process works similarly to a desktop printer, but on a much larger scale. Our highly-skilled printing operator uses a 62-inch by 120-inch flat-bed printer to print directly onto the glass surface.
Direct-to-Glass Digital printing is excellent for high detailed or multi-colored images, short run projects or applications in which each panel is a different image.
On-Site Systems was given 36 hours to complete a storefront window and a series of interior transoms for Atlanta.net, a boutique store in the Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport.
Due to the speed and quality of the imaging process, On-Site Systems was able to complete the project before the deadline, even with many last-minute idea changes to the art.
Contractor Barry Russell of Sierra Construction was extremely impressed with what On-Site Systems produced for his company.
"It turned out great," Russell said. "I liked the graphics on it. They were really awesome. I've never seen anything like that before."
Our extensive research and development team at On-Site Systems remains a leader in the glass etching industry. We are specialists when it comes to getting difficult and sometimes unimaginable projects that architects and designers send to us from the idea stage to the finished product.
Will direct imaging work for your glass project?
Doors, table tops, glass signs, wall plaques and trophies are just a few of the possibilities for direct imaging. When using glass, the surface of the glass can be frosted and backlit, the direct imaging allows the glass to be back-lighted more economically than other methods.
