Digital heat transfers are the ONLY digital solution for decorating glass!

When it comes to glass product decoration, manufacturers have been struggling with minimal options for years. The first method of decorating glass products was using high fire decals that needed to be baked on at temperatures around 1000°F for nearly thirty minutes. The next method, which several manufacturers still employ, is using low fire decals that need to be baked on at temperatures around 300-400° for about 20 minutes.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a digital solution for glass decoration that was more cost-effective and efficient? There is! Technology is advancing and glass product decoration is now easier than ever. CDigital is here to tell you more about the benefits of using digital heat transfers for glass product decoration.

Glass Decoration Made Easier with Digital Heat Transfers

Digital print technology has finally made it to the glass decoration industry, which had previously been dominated by high fire and low fire decals.

Manufacturers, product decorators, and ad specialty companies can let out a sigh of relief. Digital print technology has finally made it to the glass decoration industry, which had previously been dominated by high fire and low fire decals. These decals, while aesthetically appealing, needed to be baked at temperatures as high as 1000°F for upwards of 30 minutes. These requirements greatly slowed production and, as they say, time is money.

Digital Heat Transfers Transform the Glass Decoration Industry

One of the most popular methods for decorating plastics, metals, and many other substrates, digital heat transfers are the only digital solution for decorating glass. This is beneficial for several reasons. For starters, digital transfers are printed at 1200 dpi, 266 lines per inch, and are capable of hitting over 10,000,000 colors for truly photo quality images. However, this is just the beginning.

  1. Digital heat transfers are baked at a much lower temperature (250°) than high fire and low fire decals, which means reduced bake times and increased production.
  2. Digital heat transfers are not only economical, but also capable of incorporating variable data — barcodes, photos, text or numbers — making them ideal for short runs.
  3. Because they are flexible, digital heat transfers are easily applied to curved substrates, like glasses, bottles, etc.
  4. Digital heat transfers are incredibly durable and last numerous dishwasher cycles without harm.
  5. Digital heat transfers are easy to use, easy to set up, and there is no clean up required. All of these factors mean one thing – increased productivity.
  6. And More!

For each application, the process is the same. Customer artwork is printed on the underside of a polyester film and coated with an adhesive. The film is then slit into various widths, wound on cardboard cores, and shipped to the customer.
