Printed Glass Splashback Tips

When choosing an image for your printed glass splashback the three most important considerations are:

 

  • Aspect Ratio – Generally landscape aspect ratios (where the image is longer than it is tall) are best suited for printed glass splashbacks given the size and shape of most kitchen splashback areas.

 

  • Image Resolution – If you wish to use a photograph on your printed glass splashback, you’ll need to ensure it’s of a high enough resolution to not lose image quality when enlarged to the size of your splashback. Accurate Glass & Splashbacks can provide advice and assistance in choosing an appropriately sized image.

 

  • Image Complexity – If you’re wanting to use a pattern for your printed glass splashback, its best to stay away from overly complex and crowded patterns to avoid creating an overbearing effect in your kitchen. Accurate Glass & Splashbacks can help you choose a well suited pattern that perfectly compliments your kitchen’s layout and finishes.

Additional Information About Printed Glass Splashbacks

Our printed glass splashbacks are manufactured using the latest in large format printing technology. After the glass panels have been cut to size, processed and toughened, the glass is primed, and then the image is printed directly onto the glass panels using a large format flat bed digital printer. After the ink is dry, a protective coat of paint is applied over the back – the same tough, high quality paint we use on our coloured glass splashbacks. This seals and protects the image from damage during transit, installation and over the life of the product. Our printed glass splashbacks are covered by the same 7 year warranty as our standard coloured glass and mirror splashbacks.

 

You can select any digital image for your printed glass splashback, but a well taken, high resolution image from a professional digital camera (DSLR) is recommended, as the final prints tend to be large. This could be something you have taken yourself, or could be sourced from a photographer or online photo repository. Contact us before paying for images as we may be able to source a suitable image for you at no additional cost.

 

Another option is scalable vector graphics or “svg” files – a form of digital line drawing. As the name implies, these can be scaled to any size without degrading in quality, and include tessalating patterns (patterns which can repeat infinitely). Try a google search if you are unfamiliar with these.

 

When selecting an image, consider the shape of your splashback panels (also known as the aspect ratio). Usually, splashbacks are wide and not very tall, so landscape or panoramic images tend to work best in most cases. We can always crop a larger image, but stretching usually doesn’t look great. This is another reason why it’s important to start with large, high quality images.

 

We can even print images of natural stone such as marble, to give you that marble look without all the cleaning and maintenance worries – or a distressed brick wall. These can be surprisingly convincing! The possibilities are really only limited by your imagination. Contact us today to discuss your design concept.
