Hey buddy, nice! I had no idea anyone was looking!

Only thing is you were so early I hadn't actually added a postage option to the item yet so unless you can make it down to East Sussex from where you are (it's down as a collection!) you'll need to PayPal me the shipping which is £3.50 - sorry, the cheapest parcel option with RM is £3.20 unless we go second class and I still need to get boxes. More than I had hoped. :(

I should probably add 2nd class as an option, what does everyone think?

I'm going to PM everyone who's pre-ordered on a first come first serve basis (I think there is a pretty long list!) to get these made as they come in. I have all the glass here, but they take ages so haven't made these ones in advance I'm afraid.

Just put my order in! Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh!

Just so I know once it arrives, will it be dishwasher safe, or best to just wash by hand?

It's ben@grcade.co.uk in case anyone else needs it.

I'm afraid I've just had to bump up shipping for these to 3.99 because I had to order a load of boxes in bulk and strawberry float me boxes are expensive!! I got nice glued together tear-open ones that aren't ridiculously massive for the actual item and all clearly marked as FRAGILE. All items will be compacted with JIFFY bubble wrap. P&P price for current orders will be honoured, of course.

Please note I've set individual stock levels for glasses based on the glass I can afford to get upfront - I have 1 conical and 6 tulips left to etch on, the conicals are still on their way, but they should all go out by Wednesday. The numbering will be based on pre-orders (see earlier post), that are obviously now closed - from here on orders will be treated as regular back orders. :)

Oh and one other thing, please make a note of your GRcade username in your order, if you can! Just helps me understand who is who. I'll send you a PM if I'm not sure. I want to get the silly certificates right.

Conical shape is this, it is about 1 inch taller.

Image

Tulip shape is the one pictured, which is my final test glass.

Heskimo, the glasses are all tempered and shatter resistant, and the etching process is chemical using acid, which means the the acid slowly erodes the surface of the glass for 15 minutes. So there is no trauma to the glass. I was going to etch using a dremel but this wasn't only bloody hard, it didn't look professional and caused chips. This should be fine in a dishwasher, although having not owned one for years (or seen a glass explode in one), I would always err on the side of caution and wash by hand with special things. Not that I have a choice! :slol:

These are catering grade glasses made for chucking around in pubs. They are dishwasher safe according to my supplier.

As with all glass, never subject to sudden extremes of hot or cold. Ie transfer from cold to near boiling water and vice versa.

Small update, the 4x conical glasses have been shipped to me as well as my packaging materials so there won't be any delay on the first 8 preorders at least, I'll be doing as many as possible.

I'm going to Illustrate those tomorrow but I think I'll keep them as a surprise rather than posting them up. I even have nice paper ready. 8-)

Nice one lewd, I forgot you had that coupon stowed away! ;) Shirt is ordered and will press right away - do you want me to send that out earlier or as one package with the glass?

Anyone interested in some actual gaming themed Ts?

Gonna work through a series of these and maybe make a compilation shirt.
