There are countless of photo editing software that can be good for heavy designing and graphics and also, word processing software that’s perfect for text based designing. Opt for large sized font of the text design so it will be read and seen easily. After you’re done working on the design, the next thing you should do is print the size that you like to be on your engraved pint glasses and then, cut off the excess around the design.
Step number 2. Put the printout inside of the pint glass and then, tape it inside the wall. Make sure that the design is straight and at the same time, in the position where you want it on the glass. You should then place a dark rag inside the glass for the design to stand out and to make it simpler to trace as well throughout the engraving process.
Step number 3. Now, you’re set to do engraving. Wear safety glasses, turn on the engraving tool and then, set it to high speed. See to it that you don’t touch the glass until the engraving tool is at its maximum speed. Then after, trace the design on the surface of the glass using your engraver like a pen.
Number 4. With a damp rag, simply wipe off glass shavings in the engraved pint glasses you are working on. Excess moisture would interfere in your engraving process so make sure that the rag is not so wet.
