Franz Johannes Gleißner (1759 – 18 September 1818) was a German lithographer and composer. In the late 18th century, he met Alois Senefelder, with whom he collaborated for approximately 30 years using lithography as a method of reproduction to print music scores. Using the songs composed by Gleißner, Senefelder demonstrated that lithography could be successfully used for music publication.
