Selecting an Image

Size / Resolution - When selecting an image to be printed in large format it is important to pick something with high resolution. Enlargement tends to be extremely unforgiving with lower quality images. We recommend at least 3000 x 4000 pixels at close to 300dpi (larger than a 4mb file)
Shape / Orientation - The orientation of an image is important to fit the glass panel with minimal cropping. Most kitchen splashbacks are wide horizontally, so lend themselves well to panoramic 'landscape' photos. Shower liners work better with a portrait orientation.
Cut Outs - If there are cut outs for powerpoints or shower hardware keep in mind where they are positioned in relation to key elements in the image.
Theme - Think about the colours around the kitchen (or bathroom) and whether the styling is modern or traditional. A modern kitchen lends itself to photographic imagery, whereas a traditional kitchen may work well with a printed texture (granite/marble etc)
Focal Point - In designing kitchens and bathrooms there are always objects in the room arranged to give it balance. Its no different with images. For instance, in a kitchen you may wish to center the focal point of a photo directly below a rangehood.
Brightness - Keep in mind that the image you see on a screen is back-lit and illuminated. To have printed glass looking 'exactly' as bright as it does on a screen would involve some extensive additional backlighting.

Additional Information

The Process / Proof

On acceptance of a quote we will conduct a final measure and print you a full size sample sheet to roll out into place. The glass is cut to the accurate size, toughened and edges are polished. On approval of the printed sample/proof we will print the glass and back-coat it with our paints for protection. When the glass is dry we will call and arrange the install.

Measure / Quote

We offer a free, no obligation measure and quote in the Greater Auckland region. Our consultant will have the tools on hand to conduct a final measure on the first visit if possible.

Preparations

For us to conduct a final measure the kitchen should be in its final state, with all benchtops and cupboards installed. The glass is cut to shape then toughened so the sizes cant be altered half way through. Behind the glass the wall needs to be reasonably flat, but any holes or blemishes in the wall will be covered up by the glass.

Glass Type

5mm ultra clear toughened safety glass with flat polished (chamfered) edges.

Warranty

Neatly silicon sealed to minimise leakage. All of our showers are guaranteed for 10 years for hardware and workmanship
