Tips and Tricks

Mirror Your Image

Etching on the back side of the glass ensures that the small micro fracturing that may occur on the etched surface are not accessible by anyone. Make sure you mirror your image before laser etching so that the image displays correctly when looking at it from the front side of the glass!

Micro Fractures

If etching on the top surface is required, a piece of newspaper can be used to remove the micro-fractures or glass shards that are left over from laser etching. Crinkle up the newspaper and rub the etched area in a circular motion. These tricks are inexpensive and easy to trial and requires minimal clean up.
