Custom Glassware Information (pricing and artwork fees)

Minimum order size
Determined on a case-by-case basis

Pricing
Wholesale pricing is applicable. Additional quantity breaks are available subject to order size.

Process
We use a silk screen to transfer the design onto the glass. The design is then baked onto the glass in a lehr (oven).

Screen fee
The artwork is burned on a silk screen. A one time screen/set up fee is applicable of $ 100 per screen.

Ink
We use a special ink consisting of glass particles, pigments and a medium that is silk screen printed on the glass. This eco-friendly ink is CA-Prop 65 compliant. Certain restrictions with regards to the dimensions and detail level of the print. Please contact us to discuss further.

Ink color
White and black ink show up best on our glassware, but other options may be available - contact us to discuss further.

Submitting the design 

The requested design should be submitted as a PDF, with the image to be printed showing black on a white background.  Please also submit requested dimensions of the image.  If you need help determining sizing and placement, please contact us to discuss further. 

Font size
If there is text in the design, please ensure that the minimum font size is 11 points. Larger fonts are much easier to read on your glassware.

Print area
•    Small glasses made from beer bottles,  3.5" tall
Maximum printed surface
o    7 1/4" is the max length for a single /continuous design x  2" high (approximately 330 degrees around the glass)
o    An area of 1" wide needs to remain clear of designs to start and stop the printing.
o    Maximum recommended design area 2"x 2" for double sided design (front and back)


•    Large tumblers made from wine bottles, 4.5" tall
Maximum printed surface
o    9 " max length single /continuous design x 2.5” high (approximately 330 degrees around the glass)
o    Maximum recommended design area  for logo's 2.5""x 2.5" for double sided design (on two sides of the glass)

An easy check to see how the artwork will work is to print it on paper to actual size, cut it out and wrap it around the sample glass.

Avoid fine details
Please avoid fine details. The silk screens consist of a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking layer except for where the logo or design is located.  Here the ink is forced through the tiny mesh holes onto the glass by a squeegee.  Every lines consist hence of tiny holes. And there is a limit to how fine the lines can get as after that they will start to fall apart in dots or, worse, not print at all. The flip side of this is that if there is not enough space between the lines, they will start blending together. 

Mockup
Upon receipt of the artwork, we will review it, make adjustments if necessary and create a mock up. The mock up will consist of a picture of the design printed on paper and wrapped around the glass.

Lead time
Once the sizing and placement is approved, we will send the design to the screen maker. Turnaround time is typically one week for the screen creation and another two weeks for production (may be longer depending on order quantity) .  

Packaging
The most secure way to ship glassware is in recycled cupholders.  64 tumblers will fit in one large box.  If tumblers are to be sold as two-packs, they can either be shipped in cupholders for you to assemble and package, or in the two-packs.  36 two-packs will fit in a large box.  Pallet dividers typically hold 143 normal size tumblers or 270 smaller tumblers per layer.  Please contact us for more information on packaging and shipping your custom order.
