Glass Etch

Customizable Glass Etching Service

Sandblasting is a manual process where a film stencil is placed on the surface and the uncovered area is sandblasted. This results in exceptionally sharp, crisp and bright engraving with a smooth finish. This process is permanent and will not fade over time.

Some pieces after this process are painted to highlight the details. I am attaching information about the colors and samples so you can distinguish the difference between them.

If you are requesting commission work, ask which is the best option based on the colors selected.

This process is not recommended for thin glass.


This is mostly used on transparent crystals or solid or dark colors like black, etc. It is said to be white but it is the colorless finish. It's more durable than painted parts.
