Ordering from TheTipsyGrape.com
In addition to our regular wine items, we offer fully personalized engraved glassware, as well as engraved wood, marble, and terra cotta products. We have created a number of template designs that can be easily customized to your specifications…you simply fill in your desired information, such as names, messages, dates, etc. Or, if you wish to create your own design from scratch, there is a “Make Your Own” item for each product offering. We also offer bulk items (with further quantity discounts) for larger size orders.
We offer engraved items with no setup charges and no minimum order size. Each item’s prices are displayed on the product page; prices do vary depending on the type of product to be engraved. All posted pricing includes the cost of engraving. Quantity discounts are automatically incorporated for orders of more than one of the same glass.
When ordering our engraved glassware, you can shop by glass type, or you can click on the special categories for Bulk Orders. Ordering is easy and is accomplished via drop downs and text input boxes. For example, you would choose your font by selecting it from a drop down menu, and then would enter a message that you wanted engraved into a text input box. Ordering our many wine-themed accessories is very simple: simply click on the item you want, enter the quantity in the input box, and proceed to checkout.

Customers’ Special Instructions
Every engraved item has a Special Instructions input box. This box allows you to communicate any desired changes or additions that haven’t already been selected. For example, if you like the sample glass shown in the photo, but would prefer it with the text done in a slightly different way, or with the addition of some clip art, or would like some other change, you can let us know by entering the request in the Special Instructions box.
Our Engraving Methods
We primarily use sandblasted engraving, which is the premier method of etching glass. Sandblasting produces deep, permanent engravings with an even shade of white. We also use laser engravers for some special designs such as spiral or base engraving, as well as for our marble, wood, and terra cotta products. Please click here for more information.
Restaurant Quality Glassware
We use full size, high quality glassware for our products. Nearly all of our blank glass is produced domestically by Libbey Glassware. A photo and description of each glass can be found at the top of each category page.
We can engrave designs and images with perfect precision, and art is part of many of the designs we have created. Should you wish to put clip art in a design of your own, there are links on the order page for each item that will display some of our most popular clip art. Select from over 500 graphics! Just click on the "Choose A Graphic" button on the order page, and select your desired graphic. Once you've clicked on your desired graphic, it will automatically be added into your order. Multiple graphics may be selected, but they need to be added one at a time. Please be specific with your layout instructions (so that we know where to put the text in relation to the clip art, etc). We have thousands of clip art images, so if you are looking for something besides what is on these sample pages we can almost certainly accommodate you. Please just describe what you want on the order form… or, if it is something really unusual, you are welcome to inquire with us first.
Customer-Supplied Artwork and Logos
We will be happy to use your own art or logo in your design. We can accept most graphic file formats, to include jpeg, bmp, pdf, doc, and eps. Glass only engraves in the one color of frosted white, so single color images (with no shading) work best. However, if you send us a color or grayscale image we will do our best to manipulate it with our software to achieve the best possible appearance on glass. Many items (such as the Make Your Own glasses, or the Bulk glasses) allow for art upload directly through the order form. Or, if you wish to add art to one of our existing template designs, it can also be emailed in to us at Info@TheTipsyGrape.com.
Ordering in Bulk
We do large orders for businesses, weddings, groups, and parties and we offer exceptional pricing for these bulk orders. Pricing trees on the product pages show the per-glass discounts depending on how many are ordered. Please see our Bulk Orders category to order glasses in quantities of 12 up to hundreds!
