R Vision Ink CERAMIC PRINTED GLASS - BY GLASSHAPE Graphics Limitations (almost none!) VisionInk can replicate any image, design or pattern with brilliant accuracy, vibrant colours and sharp resolution. From simple lines to full colour photos, VisionInk allows architects, engineers and designers to explore new possibilities in modern and sustainable design in commercial, residential or civic contexts and beyond. Complexity: Simple Standard Complex Example: Geometric shapes Photograph or image Collage / illusions Melinda Consortium - Printed by Veneto Vetro - Trento, Italy Colour Matching VisionInk uses 6 ‘spot’ colours (blue, green, white, orange, red & black – BGWORK) to generate the hundreds of thousands of other colours possible with ceramic inks. This is a close match to the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) ‘Process’ colour that paper based print methods use. Our software will convert any image file colour-mode to BGWORK but bright pinks are not possible to print – this is due to a lack of magenta in our colour mix (a magenta ceramic ink given current technology would need to be toxic (lead or cadmium based)). The best results come from converting an image file that is in RGB colour mode. Refer to Page 15 for more details.
