Company Profile

For 40 years, JAFE Decorating has been an industry leader in decorating glassware of all types and sizes. The company got its start in a garage in 1978 when founder, Lloyd Williams, took his 27 years of knowledge and passion for coloring glass and decided to branch out on his own. Naming his company after the first initial of each of his four children, he created JAFE.

JAFE originally focused on a unique coating process that permanently stained glass in amber, red and brown. JAFE was the only company in the US that commercially colored glass using that high temperature, chemical bonding process. Eventually, the company shifted gears to include painted glass to meet customer’s demand for a wider spectrum of colors.

Today, JAFE continues to be family-owned and operated.

The current owner, Randy O’Dell, joined the company in 1998, was running the company by 2006, and purchased the company in 2010. During these years, JAFE Decorating has evolved into a 50,000 square foot facility strategically located in Midwestern Ohio near two of the largest domestic glass suppliers. Utilizing three state-of-the-art robotic spray lines, we have developed the capabilities to formulate and apply a wide variety of specialty coatings and colors on all types of glassware, stainless steel, plastic and ceramics.

At JAFE, we offer the versatility and flexibility to make a project of any size, shape or complexity a success. Our team is driven to constantly research and develop new and exciting ways to set your product apart in the industry. Our goal is to be your decorator of choice!
