- Ordering Info
Ordering from TheTipsyGrape.com
In addition to our selection of great wine items, we offer fully customizable engraved and printed glassware, as well as engraved wood, marble, and terra cotta products. We also offer bulk quantity discounts for large custom orders.
When ordering our printed or engraved glassware, you can shop by first selecting the desired glass type from the many styles and sizes of wine and champagne glasses that we offer. Then, select your customization option (we offer engraving, digital printing, and screen printing).
Ordering a customized item 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 or printed 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 customizable 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 engrave via sandblasting, which is the premier method of etching glass. Sandblasting produces deep, permanent engravings with an even shade of frosted 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.
Our Printing Methods
We screen print and digitally print on our glassware using special printing machines. We use flame pre-treatment and special UV inks to achieve the best result and durability. Please click here for more information on screen printing and please click here for more information on digital printing.
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 description of each glass can be found at the top of each category page.
We can engrave or print designs and images with perfect precision, and art is part of many of the designs that we offer as easy-to-customize templates. Should you wish to add clip art to 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! The clip art that you see will be optimized for your desired customization method, so you will see single color clip art for engraving and screen printing, and full color clipart for digital printing. Just click on the "Browse Graphic Library" button on the order page, and select your desired graphic. Once you've clicked on your desired graphic, click "Add to Customize" to add it to your order. Multiple graphics may be selected and added at the same time. When you add a graphic to the design, please be specific with your layout instructions (so that we know where to put the text in relation to the clip art, etc).
If you would like us to use your own graphic in the design we can almost certainly accommodate! Read on...
Customer-Supplied Artwork and Logos
We will be happy to incoporate your own art or logo into your design. We can accept most graphic file formats, to include jpeg, bmp, pdf, doc, and eps. Please note that we do recommend that art files be of good quality and resolution. Many order forms (such as the Create Your Own glasses) allow for direct art upload. 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. If your art or design is something really unusual, you are welcome to inquire with us first.
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.
