Get Creative with Colored Glass
Anchor-Ventana offers many personalized colored glass options for use in your residential or commercial project. Glass is a great option to start with: sleek and modern look, economical, recyclable, sanitary, heat-resistant, scratch-resistant, and easily maintained. All these qualities make glass an excellent choice, but have you thought about the variety of looks available?
Our technology allows us to custom design any look you have in mind for just about any use in your home or business. We have several ways to add color and variety to your glass design, resulting in a palette and custom designs that are only limited by your imagination.
Our clear glass is beautiful and provides a sleek, modern touch to any design. Add to that a variety of colors, patterns and images and literally any design becomes possible. Anchor-Ventana offers three ways to add color and variety to your design:
Back Painted Glass
Glass is a natural choice for the kitchen and bathroom with its ability to wipe clean and it’s resistance to bacteria, heat and damage. Custom glass is seamless, as durable as stone while not costing more, and never needs to be sealed. Because of these qualities, glass can be used in a variety of utilitarian ways. Traditional backsplashes used to extend only 3-6 inches above the counter ledge. Today the trend is to expand the backsplash all the way to the bottom of the upper cabinet. Glass is a great way to do this.
Our Back Painted Glass offers color in places you wouldn’t expect with glass, and the choices of color are limitless. Choose any accent color or bring in a paint number from the hardware store and we can match it. Can you imagine how this opens up the possibilities to brighten other kitchen areas such as counter tops, walls, built-in stove tops and islands? Don’t forget the bathroom, and even other rooms in your home or commercial building. Glass doors, room dividers, signs and marker boards, cabinet doors, decorative mosaics, interior wall cladding, tabletops and more can all be enhanced with our technology.
Digitally Printed Glass (Dip-Tech Glass)
Anchor-Ventana offers another great way to personalize your glass design for home or business: through Digital Glass Printing, or Dip-Tech Glass. This relatively new process allows any digital design to be printed directly onto the glass in a way which is long-lasting and durable. High-precision printers use ceramic inks to create a limitless array of colors and detail. Any logo, artwork, shape, or color combination is possible. Home and business owners can have a truly unique look literally anywhere they want.
Your company’s design can be incorporated into any area of your commercial building. Digital designs that can translate to your glass can be anything from graphic logos, drawings, decorative shapes, background designs, text, or photographic images. There are no middle processes that interfere with definition or add to the cost of digital printing. The images are directly printed onto the glass surface
Advantages of Digital Glass Printing:
- The ability to use photo images
- Can create panels of duplicate or continuing designs
- Direct digital files to glass
