To engrave, cut, or carve text or designs on a surface.
Our process: We use an etching cream to create our designs. The cream works on not only Glass, but Slate, Ceramic, Mirror, and Marble.
When etching Glass or Mirror, the design is exposed to the cream and a very, very thin layer of the item is eaten away, leaving a frosted look. With Ceramic or Marble, what happens is the glossy coating is what's eaten away, giving a similar effect, but oftentimes more subtle. With Slate, the cream eats away the same top thin layer, leaving your design in a lighter shade than the Slate originally is.
We don't drink alcohol, personally, but we do like to collect fun fancy glasses like Wine glasses, Martini Glasses, even Shot Glasses. We have some Champagne glasses from our wedding (that have probably only ever held sparkling cider). And, we've etched on a few in our collection! Not only can it add some class to your glass, but it can be very fun for entertaining!
And those regular glasses that are used everyday? Those (if glass, not plastic) can be etched too, just for fun or if you let people borrow them a lot, etc. (Yeah, not as common as the baking dishes - see next column).
And we can even find glasses for you if you want a brand new custom set!
Ever take a meal to a friend and never got the dish back? Ever have a pot luck dinner and forgot your dish?
We can help! We can put your name on your Pyrex dishes! (most of them, some have a special plastic coating which stops the etching process - all Pyrex I've etched has been all glass though!)
We can also etch your glass mixing bowls (if you still keep those around - I only have ONE), glass measuring cups, and any other items you can dream up!
