Knowing how you would be able to engraved pint glasses is a good skill to have. Engraving glasses of your own is actually an economical way of making a unique and great gift for your friend or loved ones or even as a personal collection. Doing personal engraved pint glasses seem to be a daunting task wherein reality, the process is relatively simple.
What you need is to just gather the basic supplies like computer software, protective goggles and engraving tool and then, do the steps below.
Step number 1. Create a design for the glass by using computer software to be able to design something that is uniquely you. There are plenty of photo editing software that can be good for graphics as well as heavy designing and also, word processing software that’s perfect for text based designing. Opt for large sized font of the text design so it will be read and seen easily. After you are done working on the design, next thing to do is to print the size you like to be on your engraved pint glasses and then, cut off the excess around the design.
Step number 2. You have to put the printout in the pint glass and then, tape it in the wall. Make sure that the design is straight and at the same time, in the position where you want it on the glass. Put a dark rag in the glass to be able to make the design stand out and to make it simpler to trace the design throughout the engraving process.
Step number 3. Now, you are all set to engraving. As you proceed, make sure to wear safety glasses, turn on the engraving tool and then, set it to high speed. See to it that you don’t touch the glass until the engraving tool is at its maximum speed. Then after, trace the design on the surface of the glass using your engraver like a pen.
Number 4. With your damp rag, just wipe off glass shavings in engraved pint glasses you are working on. Excess moisture would interfere in your engraving process so make sure that the rag is not so wet.
While it looks like the process is relatively hard to look at first, once you start with it, it would take a little bit of getting used to. This would take a bit of practice before perfecting doing engraved pint glasses but you’ll get it in no time. If you wish to have engravings on your pint glasses, this is how it should be done.
