It's easy to print on ceramic. As for glass I guess it is possible.

You can do it. You can't do too big of a image or it will distort as the pad compresses. Circles and things of that nature tend to be more tricky because of that as well. Also pad printing inks won't hold up as long as a glass frit ink.

Have you thought about subing it out to a shop that prints containers? I know we have a local shop that does a 1 color with the pint glass included for under a $1 a glass as long as you hit their minimum.(72 or 144 don't remember) The ink is also cured at 1100 degrees so the glass will get old and break before the ink will ever come off.

Hi,

You can use CG series which is a 2-component pad printing as well as screen printing ink specially formulated for printing on glass,metals and ceramic.And
for best printing on glass CG offers best adhesion and dishwasher resistance and has rapid cross-linking and improved resistance with a heat cure after printing.
