Digital In-Glass Printing

Prel-Design printed glass allows you to reproduce the image of your choice on one or more glass panels. The image is reproduced using a digital printer which applies one or more layers of liquid ceramic on the surface of the glass. Once the application is completed, the glass is tempered or heat strengthened, in order to fire-fuse the ceramic to the glass.


  • Any type of image or photo, opaque or translucent patterns can be printed.
  • The same image can be repeated on several glass panels or enlarged and split between a number of panels, all in high definition, up to 720 dpi.
  • Prel-Design Digital Printing is permanent and is exceptionally resistant to scratching, cracking, fading and chemical attacks

Glass makeup

Monolithic glass

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 on the supporting lite of glass.* The glass must be heat strengthened or fully tempered.  It is not recommended to expose the ceramic coating to the elements. Use on an external face should be avoided.

Laminated Glass

The ceramic coating can be applied on face # 2, 3 or 4 of laminated glass.* For exterior applications all the glass plies that make up the laminated glazing should be heat strengthened or fully tempered.

Insulating Glass

The ceramic coating is applied on face #2 or 3 of the insulated glass unit.*  The two lites that make up the unit should be heat strengthened or fully tempered.
