Since these are glass, is the surface textured so that the drinking glass doesn't slide off easily?

Glass is smooth, but grippy enough so drinkwear doesn't slip off!

Thanks! Good to know that info!

Can I ask how the picture is applied to the glass? Thanks

I went to the maker's site, and the only info I could find is that the image is on the back side of the glass, protecting it from damage. That doesn't completely answer the question, however, because it would be nice to know just how durable that image is when it comes to detergents or heat.

I bet these are just like the glass cutting boards. The image never comes into contact with anything. But I still don't like the idea of the clinking sound every time I would set my drinking glass or mug down on it. A little too noisy for me!

Coasters often stick to the bottoms of glasses, and it's enormously disconcerting when they drop off. Not much into coasters. Such scary little things.

When I printed my own, the sublimation coating was affixed on the underside. The image is printed on this coating, then the "feet" are stuck on.

Without the feet, I used them as sun catchers.

Interesting. They say they are dishwasher safe so I did not think a paper was affixed to it, so its actually printed on a coating?

As stated above, the coasters that I printed on had a coating "painted" directly onto the glass. This coating accepted the sublimated inks when heated.

I am assuming this is what Z uses.
