    How is backglass artwork applied? Lets say I wanted to have an artist draw a custom alternate artwork for a backglass. Is there currently a print company such as Kinko's or similar that could reproduce it on the glass? This has me intrigued with the infinite possibilities of one of a kind representations of game themes.

    I don’t know if they can do glass with the appropriate thickness that a back glass requires, but it’s worth a shot

    It is possible to just print on paper and sandwich that between two thin sheets of plexiglass.
    I have done a replacement Time Warp backglass that way and have seen a replacement Hot Hand that another pinsider did.
    Both looked really good.

    The most common methods todaybare ink screened and heat transfer vinyl, however there are marquee methods with prints that allow for proper translucy with two pieces of tempered glass.

    The latest trend with FractureMe is not suitable for correct translucency of backglasses.
