    Hi, Brian. Great idea! I live in wine country; is it possible to etch finer quality glassware, such as stemless Reidel?

  • Brian
    Brian – Special Guest
    5/13/2014 12:59 PM

    @Ellen That's a great question. We have been working on this exact thing. The higher quality glassware is a tricky one to handle in the laser process as it is quite fragile. We hope to figure out a way to offer these at some point down the road, but don't have an exact date as to when this would be just quite yet. We do have some plans to honor wine country, though, so stay tuned!

    Hello. Can you provide information on the type/quality of the glassware itself? Thanks!

  • Brian
    Brian – Special Guest
    5/13/2014 1:01 PM

    @Anony all of our glassware is made in the USA. We partner with glass manufacturers that provide high quality glassware that we've hand picked for aesthetics and sturdiness to stand up to the etching process while not making the glass weaker. These will last a lifetime even with frequent trips through your dishwasher!

    These glasses would sell like crazy in Pinehurst, NC - the Men's and then the Women's PGA tournaments are occurring in June of this year. Probably too fast a turnaround time, but they sure would be popular! Just saying!

  • Neil

    Hi Brian & Amy,

    I realize that you are only doing the cities that are currently listed. I can't seem to find an actual list. I am looking for Buffalo, NY as a rocks glass. Any chance of that city being in the works soon? Thanks so much, your work is beautiful!
