The ins and outs of transparent fractures.
Have you ever been curious about transparent Fractures? What do they look like? How do you hang them? What IS a transparent Fracture?
Well have no fear! The Fracture blog is here! And today, we’re talking about transparent Fractures.
Just like our standard Fracture, transparent Fractures are your photos printed directly onto glass. However, unlike the standard one, transparent Fractures have a stained glass look and feel because we only print the color and black portions of the photo, leaving the white ink overlay as well as the foam backing off. This is what gives it a “transparent” look and allows light to pass through the Fracture freely. Check out our super good-looking comparison below.
As you can see, the final product is really incredible! However, without the mounting capability from the foam board backing, it leaves many Fracture fans asking, “how do I display this?”
This is where Fracture fan Farol comes in.
Farol captured a beautiful photo of the Fernandina Beach marina in Florida while sailing up the Intercoastal waterway. At 5 AM, with the world fast asleep and a chilling stillness in the water, Farol bracketed three images to create this stunning HDR image of the boats reflecting on the water. (For all you photography newbs out there - a bracketed photo is created by taking a photo based on the recommended exposure, then a 2nd photo that is overexposed and a 3rd photo that is underexposed. The 3 are then combined to create an HDR image - a high dynamic range image - which exaggerates contrast for artistic effect).
After creating her photo of perfection, she had a moment of pure bravery and ordered the transparent Fracture.
Now came time to put the piece on display. With a pair of suction cups and some string, Farol got creative. She put the suction cups on the front of the glass since they don’t stick to the printed image on the back. From there, she simply tied the string to the suction cups and hung it from the top of the window frame. This allowed her transparent Fracture to hang freely on display while catching light from the outdoors. Check out her finished product below.
What are Farol’s plans for next time? She’s going bigger and wider! She recommends using a slightly wider frame than your photo so there’s a bit of extra glass on each side. Not only will this make handling and framing simpler, but it will also help display your Fracture sans fingerprints.
The Fracture team gives you mad props Farol, not only on your beautiful photo, but also on your awesome creativity that is sure to help many transparent-curious Fracturers out there.

Will you be our Valentine?
Requirements: Likes long walks on the beach, submits our Valentine’s Day survey
Well, Fracture officially has a Valentine. We’re still unsure of whether she likes long walks on the beach, but she submitted our Valentine’s Day survey which put her in the running for a $100 Fracture gift certificate. And she won!
Congrats to Joy, our Fracture survey-filler-outer who was chosen at random to be the proud new owner of a $100 dollar gift certificate! A Texan with a love for photography, Joy hopes to travel the world and photograph it one stop at a time. How will she spend her gift certificate, you ask? “To get a memory from our trip to Colorado last year,” she says, “I have some shots of the mountains that I would love to have done.” We can’t wait to see them, Joy.
A huge thank you to all you survey-filler-outers who told us the good, the bad, and the ugly. We, at Fracture, made a promise to continually adapt to better serve our customers and our market (that’s you guys!). Your opinions are what help us do better and be better.
We love what we do and we want to make sure that each of you love what we do too. Have more feedback? Tell us anything and everything at:
With sugar and spice and everything nice,
