Uses and Benefits of Etched Glass Blocks
Intricate details and custom designs – Our carbon dioxide laser can be controlled down to .001" diameter (100 times smaller than the period at the end of a sentence) providing details and shading not possible with other methods.
Free deliver and no minimum order quantities – Order one unit or thousands – we’ll ship to you free of charge and work to produce a finished product that will excite you.
Select stock patterns or create a one of kind – If you have a favorite hobby or want to match an architectural style in one block or develop a mural over multiple units it’s all possible.
One stop shopping you can trust – Our company can etch an entire prefabricated window, wall, or glass block shower and even install it for you (installations are in selected areas) and have earned the Better Business Bureau Accreditation and Consumers Choice Service Awards.
Multiple uses including signs and logos – If you’re looking for a unique sign in a wall or lobby for your business we can etch your logo or directional sign into a single or multiple grouping of glass blocks. Since our products are either 3 1/8" or 3 7/8" thick they are very difficult to break (Note: if one unit is broken our computer controlled equipment can create an exact replica of that specific block).
Personalized gifts for special occasions - if you’re looking for a unique gift for a wedding, anniversary, baby shower or Christmas you can etch personal photos, dates, and messages into our products.

Frequently Asked QuestionsIs it safe to use these blocks for inside and outside?
Yes, since the etching process microscopically vaporizes the surface of the glass and then instantly fuses the same surface to create a permanent mark the product can be used anywhere.What block designs work best?
The process works best on the wave/decora or clear/vue patterns from Mulia or Pittsburgh Corning.Can you etch colors or mirrored finishes with your process?
Yes, we have the largest line of colored glass block and multi-colored dichroic glass blocks available in the United States.Can these designs be duplicated with engraving equipment I’ve seen at the mall?
While basic laser engraving equipment can put in some stock images and letters and fonts this more basic equipment is not capable of the 600 dots per inch detail of our process. In addition, in many cases we’ll price very competitively, if not better, than this more basic process.How do I order?
