Back in January this year, I had the crazy idea of taking some of our wonderful D&D artwork and engraving them into glassware as a special Valentine’s Day gift for John. We had so many designs though that I couldn’t pick just two to get done, as I wanted a pair. John and I discussed it and we thought … Well, why not get the whole set done? We love the artwork, and it’s not like they won’t get used! It seemed a little selfish to keep these to ourselves though, so we opened it up to others who may want them as well as a special order item for Valentine’s Day.
So that’s where the story of our D&D themed glasses beginnings!
We spent a while finding a great Australian based manufacturer for these, and since it was a special holiday item, we had them done up in gorgeous black silk lined boxes to show them off a bit more!
A couple of customers sent in their own photos so we could see them in action too, it was really nice to hear just how much people enjoyed them!
After seeing how much love these got, we wondered if we could somehow make these available overseas, but also cut out the shipping time and costs to ship to other countries – as well as the potential for breakages over a long haul! The hunt was on for an overseas based manufacturer to fulfill that part of the plan! After much research and many emails, we started producing prototypes. This is the latest one we have received from a US based manufacturer, which is a test run of our revamped Warlock design.
So where are we at now?
We have a couple more prototype runs to do with our overseas contacts. Having them made up and posted over to us in Australia for checking is a long, slow process at the moment. But we are determined to get these done right and release them as soon as they are 100% ready to go!
