Vitreographs are much like monotypes in the fact that one is printing from a flat surface and offsetting the information to a second flat surface.
Because glass is such a smooth and chemically unaltered surface, the inks which release from the surface of the glass are pure and rich. Whites are clean and reds are not muddy.
The glass does go under the same amount of pressure as a piece of Plexiglas does, however the tempered glass does need to be surrounded by a wood frame that is the same height to disperse the pressure evenly. 45,000 pressure per square inch is a heavy bird on the glass.
