Crystal and glass awards and gifts can be etched to display your own commemorative message or corporate logo. Etching is acheived by a process of sand blasting onto the surface of the crystal to acheive a fine indelible and frosted effect. The surface of the gift is first shielded with a protective stencil, with the detail of your logo or message left bare. Sandblasting is then applied, with the gift or award held in an enclosed tank while the etcher carefully focuses a powerful stream of sand particles towards the bare areas of the stencil. The stencil is then removed leaving the logo or crest detail etched frostily to the clear surface.
A unique alternative to etching and much like hand engraving to precious metal, the engraver creates imagery or lettering with the use of hand held cutting tools only. Each individual engraving is unique and allows for the character of the engraver to be seen. Hand engraving of crystal and glass is well suited to recreating complex images and can achieve an almost photograpic effect, the perfect method for applying buildings and landscapes. The charge and lead time for this service depends on the complexity and time required to complete and quoted on an individual basis. Please consult our sales team for more information about hand engraving.
Corporate clients requiring a company logo, crest or motif should allow for a one-off artwork and set-up charge of up to £75.00 per logo. The individual cost of each etched item is then calculated according to how many gifts are required, with attractive discounts for the etching or hand engraving of volume orders.
For individual and online orders where etching a single gift is desired, there is a charge of £35.00 per gift. This charge allows for initials, full names or a message to best fit the product. For hand engraved imagery and intriate patterns please speak to our sales team and we will provide a quotation upon request. We will provide a digital proof of your gift to illustrate your choice of artwork and the layout and positioning of your etching or hand engraving.
For delivery lead-times on corporate or volume orders please speak to a member of our sales team.
Please allow for an additional 10 working days for delivery of individually etched gifts purchased online.
