NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Jockimo Incorporated – a leading innovator and developer of advanced architectural products and specialty art glass – today announced the introduction of ImagenGlass™, offering extremely high quality images for Specialty Laminated Glass (SLG) designs. New print technologies – utilizing special photographic quality dyes applied to PET foil and laminated inside of glass to ASTM standards – llow ImagenGlass to create vivid images with extreme clarity and sharpness that far out performs any other printed image glass products on the market today.
New Advanced Printing Technology Offers Extreme High Quality Print Images for Architects and Photographers
ImagenGlass (pronounced “Imagine” Glass) is just that: an exciting new process offering unlimited design capabilities for architects and photographers limited only by one’s imagination. In Spanish, the word “Imagen” also means: imagine.
“Printing on glass... or printing on film and laminating it inside of glass... is very popular today,” notes Jockimo President, Tim Czechowski. “However, until now, existing print technology generally produced oversized images with visible dot patterns or a grainy, fuzzy look... often a result of poor images that were too pixilated or with unsightly jagged edges due to over resolution of an image.”
He knows what he is talking about, as Tim Czechowski – with a Bachelors degree in Printing Management – gained a great deal of experience and knowledge working with printing, color separations and packaging design for companies like Nestle Food, Colgate-Palmolive and Schering-Plough HealthCare which, in turn, put him in league with some of the best print experts and marketing pros in the nation.
Today, Jockimo blends that knowledge with a passion for innovative specialty art glass products, while continuing to develop and implement a host of new technologies that are currently being used by many industries in the digital field.
“We are extremely excited about the unlimited design possibilities offered by the crisp and clear imagery of ImagenGlass,” adds Czechowski. “And we know, once architects, designers and photographers see it... and experience it... they’ll be excited too. Everyone agrees... ImagenGlass is unlike any other product currently on the market.”
ImagenGlass can be fabricated in various thicknesses for desired strength, depending on its application. It can be provided as insulated glass units, glass flooring, fire-rated glass and many other specialty decorative glasses. Maximum image size is 56” wide by 120” long.

Rules of Thumb
Jockimo "rules of thumb" when considering glass flooring:
1. Safety should be the #1 concern when discussing glass flooring.
2. Only UL tested and approved anti-slip glass surfaces should be used. (Request documentation to verify authenticity.)
3. Work only with an experienced manufacturer/supplier. (Ask for references and remember - safety is of #1 importance.)
4. A structural engineer must be used to determine the make up of the glass panels.
5. Daylighting - glass should allow for the maximum amount of light to pass. (*The use of opaque anti-slip material should be avoided.)
6. Privacy - in public applications an obscure product should be used so improprieties do not occur. This obscure product should still allow for light to pass through the glass.
7. Product should be durable and easy to maintain.
