Very nice!! What did you use to etch them???

Do you need a special vinyl?

A guy at work yesterday asked me if I could etch their logo onto some shot glasses and stuff. I told him I would see what it would take!!

Those are NICE!!!  I made a Steelers, Penguins and Penn State one for my dad for his birthday.  I told him once the Pirates start doing well, I'll make him one of those too!  :thumbsup:

I wish I had the steelers eps that you used, it looks a lot better that the one I used.

Walnut Shells on glass?  Hmmmm, I use aluminum oxide (COSTLY) but latley have just been using Black Beauty - CHEAP and 100% effective.  I will have to try walnut shells, does it cut fast?  I can frost with BB in the 1st pass and it is available at Menards for $7 for 50lbs and can be re-used about 4 times before it looses its strength.  It is also silica free as it is chrushed charcoal.

I have a 14 CFM 60 gallon air compressor, blasting cabinet, gas powered 9CFM air compressor for on site blasting, a vacuum blaster and a pressure pot. 

I cannot stand etching cream, make sure you are wearing gloves with that stuff as the active ingreadient is hydrofloric acid which attacks calcium.  Doesnt exactly burn your skin and you dont feel it but it absorbs into the skin and attacks your bones (basically dissolving them).  It is nasty nasty stuff and not enough warning is put onto the container. 

Nice job on the mugs by the way!

I was able to find some mugs at my local Deals store. They are kind of like a dollar tree but sell stuff for more than a dollar too.

The mugs were $1 ea and they said they can order as many as I need since they carry them all the time.
