The "Balmoral Glass" Firing Glass is available either with this distinctive blue branded box, or a branded satin lined box.


Deep engraving is performed by use of our professional Glass Scriber sandblasting machine. Extremely fine aluminium oxide (as fine as talcum powder) is blasted against a 'mask' (stencil), providing a deep image, carved into the glass and leaving a matt white, exact replica of your crest and text. One 'mask' is used for each glass, so 100 glasses require 100 masks.

Of course, the finished result on the Firing Glass, is only as good as the detail on the mask. And the detail on the mask is only as good as the artwork we prepare. That's what we really work hard at - preparing high-quality artwork is the key.

Using sophisticated software and good old-fashioned drawing skills, we ensure that your Lodge crest is exactly as it should appear, regardless of the quality of image you supply us with.

Artwork is never a problem to us! Our artwork department are accustomed to working from lapel badges, letterheads and an assortment of regalia. We pride ourselves on high quality detail and retain your artwork indefinitely.


We also offer a budget-busting option of decorating your Firing Glasses. Printing is available in up to four colours, with the single 'frost print' option being the favourite, because it emulates sandblasted engraving and experts are often at a loss to distinguish the difference.
