Let us tell you more about our membership with SGCDpro and the benefits of using our digital heat transfers to decorate glass and ceramics.
Who is The Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorators?
The Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorated Products (SGCDpro) is a society dedicated to excellence in regards to decorating, manufacturing and marketing of glass, ceramic and associated substrates. They promote the use of socially and environmentally responsible business practices, while encouraging members to comply with all regulatory guidelines. As a member, we are provided with expanded business opportunities and the most current technical, education and regulatory industry information.
Benefits of Using Digital Heat Transfers for Glass and Ceramics
Digital heat transfers from CDigital are the only digital solution for decorating glass products! Before digital heat transfer technology, glass and ceramic product decoration depended on high fire decals that needed to be baked around 1000°F for up to 30 minutes. This method is not energy efficient. The benefits of using digital heat transfers to decorate glass and ceramics are as follows:
- Reduced Bake Temperature (digital heat transfers are baked at 250°F)
- Full Color Digital Heat Transfers (greater details, higher quality images and more!)
- Short Run Decorating (cost effective)
- Variable Data (transfer different barcodes/numbers easily without significant costs)
- Durability (digital heat transfers can survive numerous dishwasher cycles without harm)
- Curved Substrates (transfers apply to curves products with flexible ease)
