Every Thursday leading up to USGlass magazine’s 50th Anniversary celebration in August, USGNN.com™ is taking a look back at past issues and highlighting advertisements, stories and images that ran throughout the publication’s half-century life. This week, we’re going old-school decorative.

The March/April 1983 issue of USGlass magazine features a special section on stained glass.


Below are the stories covered:

  • How Silicone Sealants Help To Protect Stained Glass Windows
  • Feature: Parrot Studios Captures Enthusiasm of Snoopy In Stained Glass Project
  • Merchandising Techniques – For The Stained Glass Business
  • Column: On Stained And Art Glass – Progress Continues to Boost Sales in Industry (see below)


USGlass magazine doesn’t cover stained glass anymore—aside from unique project stories in the USGNN.com™ newsletter or a rare mention in the print publication—but decorative glass certainly gets a lot of attention, particularly in terms of modern interior applications.
