SAHM automatic printing
High quality 8-colour silk-screen lines allow for the manufacture of both simple and complex decors. This method is suitable for logos and promotional decors.
SAHM special gold or platinum
For those wanting a bit of sparkle, glass decoration with gold and platinum can be used to ornament a company logo or the rim of a glass. In this process, glazes with an actual proportion of genuine precious metals are used.
This style is an interesting way of physically presenting the brand in the glass material itself, which results in a pleasantly tactile finish.
The beautiful frosting effect is created by treating glasses in an acidic immersion bath, which make the surface of the glass slightly rough. This style is ideal for those wanting a velvety surface for their glass.
SAHM relief printing
A more cost-effective alternative to relief glassware, relief printing nonetheless offers a beautiful looking end result. As these are more viable in small production runs than relief glasses, this style is often a great option for those needing a smaller amount of glassware.
SAHM thermo colours
Thermos are glazes that change shades depending on temperature and will display different colours depending on whether the glass is hot or cold.
UV Ink is very much an eco-friendly option – UV-curable screen printing inks do not contain harmful solvents or risky heavy metals.
