NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jockimo Incorporated – a leading innovator and developer of advanced architectural products and specialty art glass – today announced that its new ImagenGlass™ received a Glass Magazine 2010 Crystal Achievement Award as the "Most Innovative Decorative Glass Project" in the Residential category.

Sponsored by Glass Magazine, the industry's leading publication recently announced the 2010 Crystal Achievement Award winners. Selected by a panel of judges representing all segments of the glass industry, the top honors in each of 30 categories recognize "the best products and glass applications the commercial, retail and fabrication markets have to offer."

Awarded as the "Most Innovative Decorative Glass Project" in the Residential category, recently introduced ImagenGlass™ (pronounced "Imagine" Glass) offers extremely high quality images for Specialty Laminated Glass (SLG) designs. It is an exciting new process that opens unlimited design capabilities for architects and photographers that are only limited by one's imagination. The word "Imagen" means image, or picture, in Spanish.

The winning residential installation is the striking kitchen of a private residence in Australia that features both the dramatic design versatility and vibrant imagery of Jockimo's new ImagenGlass. The ultra modern decor is highlighted with bold colors and crystal clear glass art images all throughout the sleek concept kitchen – extending from the bright and cheery countertop to the beauty of naturally themed windows and is continued overhead with rich and colorful continuity in the lighting. The kitchen counters and lights feature ½-inch ImagenGlass and the windows are 3/8-inch.

State-of-the-art print technologies – utilizing special photographic quality dyes applied to PET foil and laminated inside of glass to ASTM standards – allow new ImagenGlass to create vivid images with extreme clarity and sharpness that far out performs any other printed image glass products on the market today.

"We are extremely excited about the unlimited design possibilities offered by the crisp and clear imagery of ImagenGlass and we are honored that Glass Magazine honored it with a 2010 Crystal Achievement award," notes Jockimo President Tim Czechowski.

"Our advanced printing technology eliminates the grainy dot pattern and fuzzy images provided by others as a result of outdated printing techniques," he adds, "And we know, that once architects, designers and photographers see it...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."

The 2010 Crystal Achievement Award winners serve as a reminder of the glass industry's incredible ingenuity and vast potential and they are all featured in the September issue of Glass Magazine, e‐glass weekly (Sept. 7th edition) and on GlassMagazine.com.
