11. Use of Organic Inks
Silverline Ltd uses organic inks as standard when printing glassware to preserve the properties of toughened glass where possible. Please note, organic inks are not immune from scratches and may fade over a prolonged period of continual heavy use and where dishwashers are routinely used. We are able to use non-organic inks by request but due to their high-temperature firing requirement, there may be a loss of toughening to the glassware with a shorter life being the result. Similarly, where glassware is decorated using decals which require high-temperature firing, some loss of toughening will occur.
Our in-house laser nucleation is applied to a standard tried and tested depth which has proven to be the optimum for the particular glassware being used. By default, the nucleation will not be visually aligned consistently with print on the glassware.
