What information is required to get a quote?

Since all of our glass is custom made to order, we need you to be able to provide the specifications for your piece(s) as exactly as possible in order to quote. For most orders, the minimum information required is: Quantity, Glass Dimensions (width x height), Type of Material (Tempered or Ceramic), glass thickness and tint (if tempered), and edgework required (if any). We also need to know your shipping zip code in order to calculate shipping costs.

What if my piece is not a square or rectangle and needs to be cut to a pattern?

Don't worry! We can cut to almost any shape. In many cases, we can follow a written description that you have added on our contact form in the comments section. If there are special changes or hard-to-describe dimensions, feel free to submit a preliminary drawing for approval by email to or by fax to +86(592) 713-7951. Of course, for best results we may recommend that you provide a paper template; there is no substitute for an exact pattern.

Do you do any beveling?

Yes, we do offer a beveled edge. Available edgework options are as listed. We can also offer other decorative edgeworks on your glass, such as a Pencil Polish or OG finish.

What is a seamed edge? How do I know if I need edgework?

A "seamed" edge is one that has been lightly sanded to remove any sharp burrs. Glass with a seamed edge is safe to handle but is not decorative. It is our standard finish and is available at no extra charge. We will never send out glass with sharp edges that you could not handle safely without being cut. The seamed edge is recommended for all applications in which the edges of the glass are not exposed. For example, if your glass will be installed into the frame of a fireplace door and no one will see the edges once the glass has been installed, a seamed edge is all you need. For shelves, table tops, or the like, you may want to consider upgrading to a more finished/decorate edge. Learn more about Edgework.
