- Crystal Sensations offers exceptional surface sand etching. Our sand etch is a great compliment to our 3D subsurface laser engraving
Engraved crystal and glass has existed for centuries.
To engrave crystal, film is created from vector artwork and is used to make the stencil that is applied to the surface. The crystal areas that are not to be engraved are then masked off. After the sand etching is complete, the masking is removed, and the glass is cleaned, inspected and packed.
Quality engraving requires expertise and patience. Experienced etchers often remark that our etching work is detailed, clean and has great depth, which is ideal for color fill. Admiration of our craftsmanship by our peers is always welcome validation.
- Recognize a team leader
- Celebrate corporate milestones
- Create interesting signage
A sheet of film is produced from vector artwork and used to generate a stencil that is carefully applied to the crystal surface to be engraved. Then, the crystal regions that won’t be engraved are masked off to prevent unwanted marking of the glass. The work is then put into a blasting booth and the surface is hit with a spray of sandblasting power at high pressure. The grit in the sand cuts away the glass leaving it marked with your logo or text. When the sand etching is finished, the stencil and masking are taken off, the glass is cleaned, examined, and finally packed.
Expertise and precision are needed for high-quality, detailed engraving. Expert etchers frequently remark on how well-done, clean, and detailed Crystal Sensations’ etching work is. The depth of our engraving makes it perfect for color fill, whereby color paints are used to fill the etched areas. The recognition by our colleagues for our craftsmanship is always appreciated and a source of pride.
