sent following receipt of your complete order and art instructions,
with the express purpose of communicating both receipt of your
order and information
interpretation of instructions, prices, shipping and design. The
ship date for any orders
will be established when the order is completely clarified. This
information must be examined carefully so that any misunderstanding
can be resolved prior to production. Your order will be produced

To assure prompt processing of your order, submitted artwork must have complete
and specific instructions as to layout, size, typestyle and placement. To
all electronic art should be followed up with a “hard copy” of the
art with the purchase order. Our policy is to size all artwork to the
artists’ discretion for our products,
unless otherwise specified. Listed imprint areas are subject to change.
Submitting artwork that is not properly sized will delay the processing of your
order, until we have your clarification. If the artwork is not camera-ready and
sized, extra art charges, on a time required basis at a rate of $50.00 (G) per
hour will be incurred. Providing camera ready
art will not reduce screen charges. You will be advised in advance of extra artwork
charges, and an approval will be required prior to processing the order. We reserve
the right to determine what is camera-ready artwork.
Glass America recognizes the voluntary FDA guidelines limiting decorations within 20 mm of the lip and rim area for certain items when using ceramic based
pigments. Please take the 20 mm guidelines into consideration if you wish to have your artwork vertically centered, as this may require a reduction in imprint size.
Informational Art Hints:
A) Just a reminder that if artwork is to be returned after use, please specify this on the purchase order. Place identification on the artwork as to where the artwork should be
returned and the method of requested return. The customer shall hold Glass America harmless from any and all loss, cost, expense and damages to submitted artwork.
B) Be advised that due to the shape, radius or taper of some of our products the artwork will be altered in appearance from artwork submitted. (For example brandy snifters,
Cafe mugs, and pilsners.)
C)Some of our handled glassware and acrylic products have seams opposite the handle and we do not recommend wraparound imprints.
D) When requesting a direct screen imprint the D.P.I. should
be 40 to 53 D.P.I. and camera-ready to size for ceramic imprints and 30 D.P.I.
for 22K Gold imprints. Should we need to convert your D.P.I. to
conform to acceptable screening standards, we will seek your approval for extra
art charges that apply. In the event your art requirements are higher than
the screened D.P.I., we recommend the use of a decal that renders 120 D.P.I.
E) Acetates, film positives, screens and other preparatory
materials produced by Glass America remain the exclusive property of Glass
3. ARTWORK-HANDLED ITEMS
Screen imprinting begins and ends 1" from the handle on both sides. If

5. COLORS - NEW COLORS FOR CALIFORNIA DESTINATIONS
California’s Proposition 65 referendum, which was passed by California voters
in 1985, requires warning notices on products that contain any one of over 700
substances. This warning includes substances such as nicotine and tobacco smoke,
and thousands of products varying from keys to lawn mowers are labeled with California
Proposition 65 Warnings.
Independent trial attorneys in California make thousands of Proposition 65 allegations
every year and profit from the process. Very few Proposition 65 cases are actually
brought by the State of California itself. Glass and ceramic decoration is regulated
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and no Proposition 65 trial attorney
has ever alleged violations of FDA regulation or any harm to any person related
to decorated glass or ceramicware.
The State of California Attorney General’s office can make Proposition 65 allegations;
however, the state was not involved with settlement discussions in 2004 between
a group of glass and ceramic retailers and manufactures and a Proposition 65
trial attorney. As a result, there is no uniform California-sanctioned standard
related to glass and ceramicware, and glass and ceramic decorators may advise
distributors, retailers or others that warnings may be required for glass and
that will be distributed or sold in California.
Until the subject is clarified, we feel it is best to use any of the following
Glass America is introducing three alternative ink processes that do NOT require
Proposition 65 warnings.
a) We have been using zinc based high temperature ceramic
ink for all “known” California shipments.
b) A new low temperature ink has now been developed
that tests as durable as our high temperature zinc base
process. As of the date of printing the
2006 Glass America Catalog, we recommend the low temperature
process be used instead of the current
high temperature zinc based colors (a) Note: The decal process will
still require zinc based colors
on glass products only.
c) New Sublimation four-color process.
All Three of the above process (a-c) do not require Proposition 65 Warnings.
In all cases, Federal regulations are being complied with and allow us to use our standard base screening colors. We use standard base colors because of their durability and their proven safe reputation on the exterior of drinkware.
California does not recognize the Federal standards and developed their own. Their requirements include warnings, which we believe may be misinterpreted. Glass America disclaims any responsibility for any violations of California Proposition 65 requirements for any product decorated which does not utilize exclusively the materials specified in “A through C” as above.
If any distributor or end user knowingly or unknowingly sells product distributed into the State of California and does not inform Glass America in advance, in writing, prior to production of the order, the distributor or end user will hold Glass America harmless from all liability for alleged Prop 65 violations. It is the distributors’ responsibility to notify Glass America in advance of shipments to California or eventual indirect shipments to California. Any and all costs associated with defending any legal claims due to Proposition 65 will be the responsibility of the distributor and/or end customer, if Glass America has not been given advance notice prior to production of their order(s).
6. COLOR CHANGES
Should you require part of the order to be imprinted in a different
ceramic color within a production run using the same screen, there is a
color change charge
of $16.25 (G). Changing from a ceramic imprint to 22K Gold imprint
will incur a new screen charge. Minimum 144 pieces for special
pricing per color change. There is no extra
charge for using the same imprint, screen and imprint color on different
colored mugs of the same style. (Applicable to one color imprints only).
required for each color change (imprint or item).
7. COLOR MATCHES
Exact PMS color matches are not available. We try to match your color selection as closely as possible using PMS numbers as a reference only. If a special color is desired,
such a request must be clearly stated on the order and a swatch of the color to be matched must accompany the order. Special colors may delay your order. Due to the nature
of ceramic colors, an exact match cannot be guaranteed.
For ceramic and glass products we use standard ceramic imprint colors.
They are fired on at temperatures of 1050-1100 degrees Fahrenheit,
fusing the color for lasting permanence. 22K Gold are not ceramic colors
wear off with use. We do not recommend the use of precious metals
if you require lasting imprint
permanence. The color shade or glaze of coffee mugs and ceramics
may vary within an order and in particular with red exterior glazes.
We cannot guarantee that reorders will be of the same color shade as a previous
order or speculative sample. Variances in the color of glazes within
order is an acceptable industry standard. Due to the
variances in mug colors, PMS color references are not available.
The shades of ceramic inks will vary; depending upon the color
of the item selected. Non-fired acrylic inks are used for steel and acrylic
Close PMS matches may be achieved. We do not recommend the use
of light or pastel ceramic inks on darker colored mugs.

30. QUALITY OF GLASS, CERAMICS & STAINLESS STEEL
The porcelains and stoneware products depicted in our catalog are not deemed acceptable for restaurant use with repeated dish washing in heavy commercial dishwashers.
Slight variations and tiny imperfections in glassware and ceramics are not considered flaws. There are almost always slight differences in diameter, height, and other
dimensions in glassware and ceramics. Listed ounces and weights will vary. Due to the individual craftsmanship of the hand dipped and lined duo-toned mugs collection;
variances do occur in the color portions of the glaze. Variations in materials, firing temperatures, and glazes may result in dissimilarities in glassware and ceramics. These
conditions are within acceptable industry standards. Due to the nature of the Stainless Steel items with plastic PVC liners, we do not recommend them as dishwasher safe.
The dissimilar materials, stainless steel outside and plastic liner inside may cause expansion and contraction if washed in dishwashers allowing water to become trapped
between the walls of the mug. Colored stainless steel mugs are NOT dishwasher safe.
31. QUANTITY SHIPPED VS. QUANTITY ORDERED
Due to the difficulty of manufacturing exact requirements without sacrificing quality, all shipments of 288 pieces or less are subject to 10% over or under the quantity ordered
and must be considered fulfillment of the order. Orders for 289 pieces or more are subject to 5% over or under the quantity ordered. Orders requiring no overruns are subject
to an underrun of up to 10% and orders requiring no underruns are subject to an overrun of up to 10%. Exact quantity shipments are available for an additional charge of
$25.00 (G) Decal orders are subject to an overrun or underrun of up to 10%.
32. REGISTRATION OF MULTIPLE COLOR DESIGNS
Where it becomes necessary to register one color or more next to another, there is the possibility of misregistration amounting to approximately 1/16” to the right or left,
depending on the size and shape of the ware being decorated. This tolerance meets industry standards, and is considered acceptable. If we determine that a decal should
be used to hold specific tolerances, additional charges will apply.
Exact reorders placed within two years of the previous order will incur a $12.50(g) Reorder Charge, per color. Reorders placed after two years will incur normal screen charges of $50.00(g), per color. Due to the variances in production equipment, processing, inks and other conditions between your original order and the reorder, a reasonable variation from the original order to the reorder is considered within acceptable industry standards. If the reorder has a color change or a copy change, we reserve the right to submit a proof for your final approval.
Reorders should be submitted on a new purchase order and reference the previous order number and date. If a reorder has been placed numerous times, please reference the most recent order placed. Providing this information will assist us in locating your previous order and enable us to process the order more quickly and ensure we have the correct art for the reorder.

46. Etch Areas
Oversized Etch Areas:
All etch areas listed in the Windsor Collection are suggested etch areas. These etch areas have been created to allow us to create the best looking finished product possible. Many guidelines, including (but not limited to) the overall shape of the piece, the items contour and number of cuts or bevels, go into our decisions regarding etch areas.
If you wish to etch an area which is larger than our listed etch areas, additional charges may apply. We will advise you in advance if additional charges will apply for all etched artwork that exceeds the listed available etch areas.
Non Traditional Etch Areas:
Most items are pictured in our catalog and on our website showing the traditional deep etch location for the item. The suggested etch area which we publish for all items is based upon measurements taken from these locations.
If you wish to etch an area other than the standard etch imprint area, please know that additional charges may apply. You will be notified in advance if the non tradtional etch area you are requesting will incur additional charges.
