Thinking about giving a better purpose for your empty bottles? We’d love to help you with your project.
Whoever tried cutting or drilling glass bottles at home knows how challenge is to achieve a good result. Hand sanding and polishing take ages and they never look neat. With our glass processing knowledge and proper equipment we can provide the best finishing for your glass bottles so you can concentrate on the other aspects of your product design.
Working with a variety of glass process equipment we can offer our services from 1 off till large quantities. The bottles can be supplied by the customer or sourced by us. Our aim is to avoid bottles ending up on landfill so any size order is valuable to help us achieving this goal.
If you are a candle maker, product and lightning designer, an artist or just a DIY enthusiast, you can be benefited from our services. Please contact us for pricing, ordering or any other questions.
Glass Bottle Cutting
We can cut down bottles down into tumblers, candle jars, candle holders, vases, carafes, light pendants or any other idea you might have to re-purpose glass bottles. Depending on the end product requirements we can offer 2 types of finishing – standard sanding and polishing or fire polishing. Standard finishing is suitable for candle jars, candle holders, vases or pendants; while fire polishing will give the perfect rim finishing for drinking glasses.
Glass Bottle Drilling
Simply drilling the bottles create many possibilities especially in order to create lamps and light pendants as the power cables will neatly come through the bottle creating a professional finishing. Drilling the bottom of previously cut bottles can become plant pots so the water can be properly drained. We can drill holes from 4mm till 50mm and this is not limited to glass bottles, other glass, ceramic or porcelain plates, pots or artefacts can be drilled to be repurposed.
Branding & Customisation
Our products can be personalised with your logo or any text message. Your business can spread a sustainable message offering an eco-friendly promotional material. If you are a restaurant, PUB or a brewery owner you can have a custom tumblers or glassware promoting your brand. If you are hosting a party or function there is no better way to impress your guests than having personalised glassware with the celebration details or custom messages. Using laser etching we can offer lower quantities with very low setup costs, for higher quantities we can also offer kiln fired printing at accessible cost. For both options the customisation are permanently printed on the glass so your logo or message will be out there forever.
