Q: What does SS, DS, 1/8", or 3/16" mean?

DS or 1/8" is Double Strength glass. It is used for larger lighting pieces, glass serving trays. It is approximately 1/8" thick.
3/16" is 3/16" thick glass. It is used for heavier lighting pieces, glass serving trays that are being cut or etched into.
3/8" is 3/8" thick glass. It is used for thick plates, and paperweights.

Q: Do you do custom work?
A: Yes, we do custom work. Each project needs to be reviewed and quoted separately. There are minimum quantities depending on the characteristics of each item.
Q: If I paint on your clear glass plates, can I bake them in my oven to cure the color?
A: Yes. You can bake the plates in the oven to cure the color on them. Follow the color's instructions.
Q: How do I measure the glass plate for the correct size?
A: Most of our sizes are measured in the flat. When the glass is bent, the size will be less. A 12" square will measure 12" x 12" in the flat. When it is bent, it will measure 11 3/4" x 11 3/4". You can measure squares and rectangles across the back of the plate. Example: 6" across the back would be a 6" square. A measurement of 8" by 14" would be our 8 X 14 rectangle. For rounds you measure across the back. It might be 1/4" to 1/2" larger than the "round size". Example would be 10 1/4" measurement across the back of the glass would be for a 10" round. Sometimes it is smaller.
Q: Is there a minimum quantity or minimum dollar amount I must purchase?
A: We do not have a minimum quantity or dollar amount for purchases.
