Screen printing works well on float glass and colored flat glass. Glass with a structure (figure glass) gives a distortion of the image. Glass has sharp edges that can tear the screen. Therefore, glass is often PP polished or sanded in advance.
For screen printing on glass you use glass pigments or frits. We do not have these in stock in the workshop, but we can order them on request. You can also purchase them yourself elsewhere.
Screen printing on glass can be done with high- and low-burning pigment. These are made with a suiting medium for glass (there are different kinds). Usually an aqua-friendly screen-printing medium is sufficient. Printing is usually done with mesh size 77T. It is also possible with other mesh sizes such as 43T or 90T, depending on the desired result.
