The post-processing ways to make our daily life glassware more attractive
In daily life, we use transparent and smooth glass products most often, which is the most common and simplest mode of production of glass products, but if you want more complex designs, we need to use complex molds or post-processing methods to turn your glass products into works of art, so today let's introduce some common glass processing methods:
This kind of engraved pattern on glass products is to make the shape of the pattern you need directly on the mold, this is the simplest way, there is no need for post-processing, and the pattern can be clearly visible and will not be erased, but it is worth noting that because the pattern is engraved on the mold, you need to open a new mold when you need carving customization, and the cost will be higher.
Spraying color is to spray color on transparent glass, you can choose to spray all colors, you can also choose to spray a part in a product, you can choose to spray the same color, you can also spray a variety of colors, this way makes the glass as beautiful as colored crystal, and can remain transparent, the disadvantage is that you need to take good care of it when in use because it will gradually begin to fade with the passage of time.
Both of these methods are printed or affixed to the glass products to make the glass products more beautiful and decorative, the difference is that the decals are used for irregular shapes and colors are more bright, all decals will cost a little more than printing. If you have a single color pattern and do not want to fill all the products and the shape of the product is very regular, you can choose to print to save money.
Electroplating is gold or silver plating on the product, which can make the product look more high-end and luxurious, suitable for a variety of high-end occasions.
Ion-plating is another way of post-processing, the product will not fade, making the product shinier, this way is more expensive.
