Sandblasted Glass
Sandblasted   or   “etch   effect”   glass   is   achieved   through   a   special process    on    our    in    house    ceramic    digital    printer.    A    specially designed   algorithm   places   small   dots   of   white   ink   in   a   style   that replicates the satin, silvery finish found on sandblasted glass. The   advantage   of   this   method   over   traditional   sandblasting   is that   you   have   more   control   and   are   able   to   have   multiple   levels of   opacity   on   one   design   as   well   as   produce   images   rather   than just    vector    shapes    into    works    of    sandblasted    art.    Etch    effect prints   still   allow   light   through   but   can   be   used   as   privacy   glazing when the opacity level is more than 70%. Printed   etch   effect   glass   is   also   highly   scratch   resistant   and   will not    fade    over    time    as    all    ceramic    ink    after    toughening    is    UV proof.   Prints   can   also   withstand   a   variety   of   weather   conditions and are highly resistant to wind erosion and rain over time. The   traditional   method   of   sandblasting   is   still   available   for   full coverage    and    privacy    glazing    ,    though    it    can    not    be    used    to create   ornate   designs   to   the   same   level   of   accuracy   as   the   digital printer.
Privacy Glass Obscures vision but still allows light transference (Opacity levels must be 70% or above for this to apply)
Printed Etch Glass A wide range of opacities available used in conjunction with our in house printed black borders.
Printed Etch Imagery Unique multi layered etch designs created from any image to suit any shape or size of glass.
Printed Etch Patterns Vector patterns seamlessly designed to suit customer specification.
Gradient Etch Modern and stylish gradual etch prints that fade out as it travels up the face of the glass.
Laminated Etch Printed etch designs between two pieces of glass. Durable and safe while still remaining elegant.
Sandblast and etch designs can be made from a variety of sources. Our sales team is able to  communicate customer enquires to our design team to create bespoke, unique pieces from scratch, as well as accept .pdf, vector, raster or autoCAD drawings files to speed up the pre production process.
