MASTERPIX prints your favorite photos on thin, durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass using UV-cured inks so your photos remain vibrant with long-lasting color for years to come. Manufactured using Corning's proprietary fusion draw process, Gorilla Glass is optically clear, tough, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, thin and lightweight, which makes it a great choice for preserving cherished moments. By visiting the MASTERPIX website, www.MASTERPIX.com, consumers can create glass prints in sizes ranging from 5 inches by 7 inches to as large as 16 inches by 24 inches. MASTERPIX glass prints can be displayed in a table top stand, hung on the wall, or used in standard picture frames.
