Will the etched images wash off the glass?

No.  We sandblast each item individually, and the result is a permanently etched image on each piece.  The extremely fine abrasive we use allows us to provide a lot of detail in our finished product.

What quality of glass do you use?

We pride ourselves on our choice of high quality glassware.  We use mostly Libbey glassware and also carry lead crystal stemware and vases for special customer requests.

We do recommend hand washing for the Marilyn Classic and Marilyn Cameo Series stemware as it has a crystal affixed to the glass.  All of the other standard glasses are dishwasher safe.

Do you have a minimum quantity order?

No.  We pride ourselves in creating custom etched orders of any size.  If you need 1 or 100, we can etch it for you!

How much time do you need to etch my order?

The duration it takes to complete the order depends on the number of items you order and if we have stock on hand. We carry most of the commonly ordered glass items including wine glasses, coffee mugs, plates and vases. We will always provide you with a timeline to make sure our items get to you by your deadline.
