Digital printing on glass is a relatively new way for architects and designers to add high-resolution multi-color design elements to building exteriors and interiors. It uses specialized software to create electronic files the digital printer can use to deposit ceramic ink onto the glass surface through a print head--the resulting image is permanently fused to the glass. The ceramic ink used in digital printing has characteristics similar to ceramic frit, but there are differences to understand.
