Geek Girl Meets Glassware

We are Glass Cannons, as seen on Offbeat Bride, Huffpost, Buzzfeed, & Country Living!

Glass Cannons runs at full speed thanks to the stewardship of the Matthews family. You will find Afton’s infectious personality at Comic Cons and Craft Fairs, while Ben and the little explore the shows.

Priding themselves in bringing geek to glass, your passion is their passion. At Glass Cannons you will find quotes, people, places and things, ranging all of geek culture, permanently etched on any type of glass. Wine glasses, shot glasses, mugs, and bottles, if it’s glass, it can have a permanent Glass Cannons etch on it. Make sure to let your imagination run wild as you look through their items, Glass Cannons also takes commissions!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We happily accept custom and personalized orders! Please send a message for details, but we can work on custom graphics, custom fonts, different glassware, and simple additions to the current items.

To use a custom graphic, we charge $3. To add a name or a date we charge $3.49 per name/date per glass.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer gift wrapping for purchase through the store.

Marking an item as a gift will not mean it is gift wrapped; just that prices are omitted in packaging.

This option will not prevent customs fees for eligible international orders.

Care instructions

All items sold in our shop are permanently etched; the etching will never rub, scrape, or fade off. All our drinking glasses are top-rack dishwasher safe.

We recommend hand-washing our glass coasters simply to protect the rubber pads on the back. The etching itself is dishwasher safe, however.

What if my item breaks in transit?

We package every order carefully, according to what we have found works best during shipping over 15,000 glasses through multiple sales channels. However, very occasionally things happen. We will happily replace anything damaged in transit at no cost to you, with the exception of items in our Sale section. All we require is a picture of the damage and that you politely contact us within 48 hours of the item arriving.

Our items rarely break in transit; we have less than a 1% breakage rate and every item is labeled with a fragile sticker on the packaging.

Do you offer combined shipping?

Yes! We use etsy's calculated shipping to offer combined shipping on every order. Though etsy will show you how much it costs to ship that single item on the item page, you will see your total combined shipping cost when you click on your shopping cart in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

When will I get my order?

We make every order by hand and often remake a glass from your order if we're not satisfied with it the first time. Creation times can vary by time of year and order volume, so please see your checkout screen for the most current updates. Shipping time will depend on the shipping option chosen at checkout and is separate from creation time.

USPS guarantees 1-2 business days for Priority EXPRESS only, except during the week before Christmas.

If you need your order very quickly, we do offer a Rush Order option for $7.50 that can be found on the front page of the store. This does not expedite shipping times, just creation times.

Are your items hand-made?

Yes! I hand-etch every item I send out. I'm not using a laser engraver that sometimes leaves sharp surfaces, I really am putting time and love into every glass. As such, we ask that you understand there may be small variations between glasses. Though we do our very best to keep these to a minimum, it's part of why we consider Glass Cannons a work of love and we hope you can appreciate having something totally bespoke.

Can it get here faster?

We offer paid rush orders here: which will get your order in the mail within 2 business days. You can also upgrade to priority EXPRESS shipping (1-2 days, the only guaranteed shipping service through USPS) during checkout. You may choose one or both, but please note that if you rush shipping, creation time is still the same. If you purchase a Rush Order, shipping time is still the same.

Please note that these options are offered for your convenience, but that we do not honor rush order requests left in order notes unless they have purchased the requisite upgrades. In order to deliver consistent service and great products to *every* customer, we require speed upgrades to be purchased.
