My boss showed us some examples of the new product, which is images printed directly on glass. It looks super nice, the printing is really good quality. It’s like looking at a giant magazine page. It’s cool, but I didn’t really have much interest in using it in an enclosure (one of our cast patterns had my attention)
He showed us a technique we can do with the printing… The glass is printed on the back and looks black from the front. But when you put a light behind it, the image becomes visible. It’s hella cool and would be so perfect for an enclosure. It looks like our regular black glass, which is my absolute favorite, but I’d decided against using it for the new enclosure because it’s a little plain. The dark color should provide extra security for the snake, and when the tank lights are on, I get to enjoy a cool backlit picture!
By the time I’m ready to build, they should have this thing out of testing. I’m pretty sure I’m ditching the cast glass idea now. But I’ll need to figure out what I want printed on the glass :)
Tomorrow I’m going to do some mockups of the layout so I may post some screenshots.
