Back-Painted Glass FAQs

Learn more about some of the most frequently-asked questions we receive when it comes to back-painting and color-matching.

What are the benefits of using back-painted glass?

From glass markerboards to conference tabletops, back-painted glass can be used to infuse color and style into almost any design project, creating welcoming, practical spaces with a striking look and feel. Those seeking a more subtle statement can still utilize the material, as glass can also be painted in softer hues.

Is back-painted glass a versatile decorative option?

Due to its customization options, back-painted glass is more versatile than other materials, such as granite and marble. Aside from being painted to match the designer’s vision, it can also be expertly cut and shaped by an experienced fabricator.

How many back-painted colors are available?

Dillmeier Glass Company offers a range of standard back-painted colors, along with custom color-matching to complement your brand, logo, and/or décor for a personalized look.

Is back-painted glass resistant to bacteria and corrosion?

Because glass is a non-porous surface, it doesn’t allow air or water to pass through. As long as your surfaces are regularly cleaned, you should be able to keep everything free from corrosion, as well as bacteria and mold.

What happens if my back-painted glass fades or chips?

Should any of these instances occur, your product is covered through Dillmeier Glass Company’s Lifetime Guarantee, offering full assurance on all of our flame-forged ceramic ink for the life of the product.
