Corning Innovation Turns Memories into Masterpieces
With MASTERPIX™ Fine Glass Prints, you can now print your photos on thin, durable, optically clear Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which has been used as a cover glass on 5 billion electronic devices around the world.
The same tough, damage-resistant glass that helps protect your phones and tablets is now available in glass prints to help preserve your most cherished moments. Photos from family events – vacations, graduations, weddings or birth of a new baby – can easily be transformed into a lasting gift with MASTERPIX Fine Glass Prints.
Glass Prints: Your Piece of Corning Innovation
While many retailers offer a print-on-glass option, MASTERPIX glass prints utilize Corning innovation to turn your photos into a work of art.
MASTERPIX glass prints are not just printed on glass as they are at other manufacturers. Your photo is ink-jet printed using ultraviolet-cured (UV-cured) specialty inks onto Gorilla Glass. MASTERPIX glass prints are made using a multi-step process that not only preserves precious photos for years to come, but transforms your photo into a vibrant piece of art suitable for tabletop or wall display.
The four-layer process to create a MASTERPIX glass print begins with a primer that adheres to the back surface of the Gorilla Glass (layer 1). Next, your image is printed using UV-cured inks onto that primed layer (layer 2). Next, white ink (for opacity) is printed on the image layer (layer 3), and finally an anti-splinter film (layer 4) is applied to protect the inks from scratches and better hold the glass together in the event of breakage*.
