Technological advancements in digital printing on glass have opened new doors for artists of all types. One advantage of new technology is the ability to print a variety of colors and translucency on any type of glass, allowing for endless color possibilities, closer matches, deeper vibrancy, and more levels of translucency. Further, digital prints are done in high resolution for extremely detailed results. These advanced machines have made digital printing a quick, efficient, and cost-effective option for everything from large batch orders to custom one-offs.
Here are a few ways artists are setting themselves apart from the crowd using digital printing on glass.
Digital printing on glass offers architects a new way to incorporate art into their projects. Glass has long been an architectural staple, and as innovations in the industry continue to make stronger, safer, and more energy efficient glass, we will only continue to see more and more architectural glass. A new way to stand out is to digitally print unique designs on glass pieces like windows, shower doors, privacy glass, and more.
The versatility of digital printing provides the unlimited artistic potential to print any graphic, pattern, text, or image on any glass surface. Ever wanted to see your art on a mirror? What about a table? Cutting board? Anything is possible!

Interior designers can incorporate digital printing on glass into their work in countless unique ways to take personalization to the next level. Take a kitchen upgrade for example – from cabinet doors, to backsplashes to countertops, there’s so much room for creativity. With digital printing, the appearance of surface textures like marble or granite can be replicated on glass, and glass is a lower-maintenance, lower-priced alternative to materials like granite or marble.
Some photographers are differentiating themselves by offering prints of their photos on glass. Gone is the struggle of searching for the right size frame to perfectly accent your photos, glass photo art is perfect for decorating walls and tables (no frame necessary!).
