The foundation of the Stained Glass Overlay business is the multi-patented process used to manufacture solid, seamless, one-piece decorative glass in any design or pattern.
Developed in 1974, the Overlay process can be applied to windows (without removing them from their mountings), mirrors, skylights, ceiling panels, shower doors, etc. In its development, the original SGO objective was to achieve a top quality alternative for traditional cut glass. After many years of research, this objective was not only accomplished, but also a wonderful new product emerged. Now, even many traditional glass artisans are joining SGO’s franchise network.
They recognize the obvious advantages over working with cut glass including unlimited design and color capability, substantial cost savings, increased product strength, lighter weight, ease of application, reduced project completion time, product and territory exclusivity and a broader consumer base. The finished product offers the end user an excellent return on their investment.
It’s Pretty – But It’s Strong and Practical, too! If your specs call for safety glass where you want decorative glass, just specify Overlay on safety glass. It’s that simple!
Safety and Security Overlay is applied directly to any glass surface, including safety glass, tempered glass and insulated glass, without affecting the structural integrity of the glass. In fact, Overlay actually strengthens the glass surface.
Create The Mood In restaurants, hotels, retail shops or professional buildings, versatile Overlay takes the cold look out of glass. It can set any mood you want to portray – romantic, happy-go-lucky, ethnic, wild disco, family, serene, trusting, whatever

SGO began franchising in January 1981. Since that time, over 350 franchises have been awarded. Through a concentrated effort, SGO is positioned in thirty-seven countries around the world. In the US and Canada franchises are sold to individuals, who in turn establish their own business within a defined geographic area.
Outside of North America, Master Licenses are awarded to individuals or Companies that understand the market of the given country. Several of the Master Licensees are in related businesses, such as window or door manufacturers.
Stained Glass Overlay franchisees are industrious, ambitious individuals from all walks of life, with the common goal – to own their own business. They are attracted to the franchise concept because they prefer teaming up with a progressive company, rather than starting from scratch. Being part of the decorative glass industry with the SGO product line is appealing to many people.
As part of the investment in a franchise or a license, SGO provides an intensive training program, business management materials, application tools and a inventory of materials to start producing the initial sales of the product. A software program, custom tailored for the management of the SGO business, has recently been introduced.
SGO, Inc. provides ongoing support for the franchise network through monthly newsletters, regional and international meetings and introduction of new materials. The franchisees have the assurance that the parent company is there when they need them.
