So this is just one of a few DIY that I’ve done for my wedding, I loved these champagne glasses:
But my new last name was one letter too long, all the sites have a 12 letter max including periods and spaces. If your name falls less than this I’d say just pay to have it done.If you don’t have that option just DIY
I inquired at a local store to see how much it would cost to get this done and they quoted me at $40-$50 per glass!!!
So I followed an online tutorial similar to this: http://marthastalwart.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/booze-makeover/
bought the champagne glasses at Crate and Barrel b/c I really love the squared look. They were $12.00 a piece, pricey I know.
Created custom names and got them cut as vinyl. They were $5.00 and the lady gave me 4 total.
Bought Armor etching cream for $8.00
here are the results, for privacy I’ve blurred out our last name but hope you get the idea:
There was one little speck that I missed so I may remake mine with the spare vinyl I have.
I hope you enjoy and this inspires some of you! 🙂

What a great way to put your own touch on the glasses! Very nice!

I love this and it makes it even more special that you were able to do it yourself

They turned out amazingly well. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference side by side (exepct for the names of course). I love the square glasses too.

Tickles, ya I wanted to do all caps since that’s the style we’ve used. the online options are only lowercase.
If people are interested and your name are less than 12 characters Google contemporary Mr. and Mrs. Champagne flutes, there are a few stores that have them.
I’m excited to buy some more vinyl and etch some other glass pieces like my baking dish with our name on it. 🙂

Those look awesome!! I’m planning on the same thing…I found my flutes at Home Goods for $4/piece. Hopefully they look as nice as yours! 🙂

@asianbarbie: Those turned out awesome! Great job! I’ve been considering doing this on beer mugs for our favors. Do you happen to know how well the armor etch holds up with washing? My Fiance keeps wondering if the etching will wear off over time (although for a favor that will be used for one day, I don’t think it’s a huge priority).

Where did you get the vinyl cut? I’ve always liked those, but I don’t have one of those cricuts or whatever they’re called.

LivingInPink99: You are lucky! I wish ours was $4.00, didn’t think of checking homegoods for them.
bleusteel No they don’t come off, its a chemical change that happens to the glass so it will never wash off.
StL.Ashley I don’t have a circut either so I went to a lady at our swapmeet (flea market for east coasters) who I bought vinyl from before and she helped me with it. I created my own graphics but didn’t save it as a pdf so she helped me recreate the names.
Here is her etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MakeMyGraphic
Her graphics there don’t reflect what she does so just message her. She won’t remember my name but if you tell her its the tall girl who got the mr. and mrs. names for flutes she’ll prob remember.
There are lots of vendors that prob. can do this on etsy. It was just cheaper/easier going to her. GL!

I’ve never seen the square glasses like that but I love the look. Totally more unique than traditional glasses. You also did a really good job on the etching!
