Fred’s Signs Etching

Fred etches in a number of materials such as wood, stone, aluminum and glass. Sandblasting and glue chipping are two techniques he has mastered over the years. The two are processed differently, thereby giving each its unique, striking appearance.

Sandblasting uses fine grains of sand to “blast,” or etch, your design into a variety of surfaces. The result is a more consistent, “frosty” effect than what is seen with glue chipping.

Glue chipping is a process that occurs after the glue is carefully applied and, while drying, “chips” out the glass, resulting in a more textured appearance.

Each process produces a gorgeous look to any door, window, tabletop or other item made of glass, aluminum, wood or stone, captivating to any office or home with the help of Fred’s craftsmanship and attention to detail. Come in and see the difference in these techniques for yourself.
