New Online Designer Allows Fine Art Photographers, Interior Designers, Artists, & More to Use a Cutting-Edge Printing Medium Not Previously Available to the Public
Tampa, FL, USA – Illuma Glass’ grand opening is happening through the month of July, 2016. New members registering in the month of July will receive a 10% discount on printing services. The website features a powerful online designer to create glass prints, in virtually unlimited sizes, without the obstacles previously experienced by those interested in the glass medium. This system is designed from the ground up to make translation from the original medium to glass as easy as possible for fine art photographers, artists, illustrators, architects, interior designers, sculptors, graphic artists, anyone involved in the creative arts.
“Go make great art and let Illuma take care of the details,” urges Connie Horner, founder and owner of Illuma Glass, “With glass, artists now have a tangible material where opacity and translucency truly mean something. There’s simply no other print medium that can do this, not one that allows the control of natural light. Illuma Glass gives them access to the Designer tool, lets them explore it without waiting to have their questions answered. You can even buy it right then if you want to, no more waiting for a quote or callback. We’ve changed the rules and made it easy. I want artists to explore this exciting new world of digitally printing in glass and all its limitless possibilities with carefree abandon.”
The printing technology to produce glass prints has been available since 2010, but has never before been accessible to the mass market. Due to the inaccessibility of the industrial printers, lack of commercial options for ordering such prints, and the expense required to invest in a dedicated printer, it was not a viable option until now.
Illuma Glass is the liaison to it, providing a point & click, easy multi-step process for designing and ordering glass prints. With options to print in as many as three layers at sizes of up to 110″ x 168″ (for single layer prints), with thicknesses ranging between 1/4″ and 3/4″, this new glass printing technology enables professionals in a number of diverse creative fields to bring their work to life in a new artistic way.
The Illuma Designer walks the user thru the choices and filters options as they go; so there’s no way to order the wrong thing, it won’t let you. Color or B&W ceramic frit inks for the art being printed, several edgework styles including straight, pencil, and beveled polish, as well as hardware for hanging. Artwork can be uploaded directly into the online tool and the work can be previewed with a detailed price summary before ordering within the custom designer.
As part of the launch of illumaglass.com, new users can access useful guides to help in the selection process for their printed glass pieces, with future enhancements to include private galleries where artists can showcase and sell their work, as well as a main juried auction gallery where the best will be offered as one of a kind pieces. There are many features waiting in the wings…this is just the beginning.
