Announcement   Welcome to Glass Island Designs!

All glasses are etched using a state of the art sandblaster, and our giftware is laser engraved on a professional laser engraver.
We don't laser engrave our designs on glassware as we prefer the superior quality of sandcarving. The etched designs are permanent and will never fade or rub off.

Choose from a variety of glasses - Wine Glass, Stemless Wine Glass, Beer Glass, Whiskey Glass, Tumbler or Cooler Glass, Glass Coffee Mug, and Ceramic Coffee Mug. Also available but not yet listed are Pint Beer Glasses.

Our images are designed by the members of Glass Island Designs, who are constantly coming up with new subjects.

We are always happy to receive your custom orders whether for a simple personalized design or a more complex set of glasses. Don't hesitate to contact us with your requests - we love challenges.

About

In the Heart of the Kawarthas...

Glass Island Designs' studio is located on a small island in the heart of the scenic Kawartha Lakes in Ontario, Canada. It is here that owners Valerie and Steve design and create their unique sand-etched glassware and ceramic mugs.

For over twelve years Valerie and Steve have operated a business for stained glass and gifts, including etched glassware.

After expanding their line of custom etched glassware, they were looking for a well managed online outlet for their product. Researching the options, they decided Etsy would be a great fit and opened their Glass Island Designs online store in April 2014.

Living surrounded by beautiful countryside is an inspiration to them, and their original designs are created to reflect the natural beauty of nature. Wherever they go, the environment, as well as architecture gives them new ideas.

All their etchings are from Glass Island Designs original artwork, and the willingness and ability to go the extra mile make them the number one choice for their many returning customers.

Steve and Valerie divide the designing between them relying on each other when a creative block occurs – although they never seem to lack ideas for new designs! Inspiration can come from something they see or hear, a suggestion from a family member, or a request from a customer. Valerie and Steve both love a challenge, and are always willing to see what can be achieved.

Quality of Service is one of the highest priorities for Glass Island Designs, and as such, Steve and Valerie are only happy when their customers are happy, allowing them to boast a 5/5 star review rating on Etsy.

As well as the basic personalization offered, they are always willing to customize and work with their clients on designs until all parties are satisfied with the end result.

Glassware selected for etching is chosen for its quality and durability. Glass Island Designs' products have to be durable enough for everyday use, while still being elegant enough for weddings and gifts.

After a meticulous setup process, the etching of glassware is completed in a professional sandblasting cabinet by Valerie, Steve, and Richard.

The finished products are cleaned, and carefully packed, first in tissue, and then in bubble wrap, then finally snuggled in a box surrounded by peanuts, all to ensure your orders arrive safely.
