Does My Glassware Need To Be CE Marked/What Is CE Marking

Using CE marked glassware (or UKCA marked now the UK has left Europe) is a legal requirement for any bar, restaurant, or pub with a licence to sell alcohol from a pump.

For example, pint glasses must be marked at pint to brim, or pint to measure line. This is to ensure that the measure being served complies with the UK directives.

If alcohol is being sold from a can or bottle, no CE/UKCA marking is required on the accompanying glass.


What Is Etching?

Typically done by sandblasting or laser machine, etching is a traditional way of marking and branding glassware, which has advanced dramatically in recent years.

Why Choose Glass Etching Via Laser?

At RC Laserworks we only use top of the range and up to date laser technology. We find etching with a laser is the fastest, most reliable and cost effective way of customising glass in small-medium bulk, whilst also producing a higher quality finish than other etching processes.

How Does It Work?

Firstly, the glass is placed onto a rotary bed within the laser machine. Next, a highly concentrated beam is transferred through an optical lens and projected onto the glass. Now the laser and rotary bed work in sync, with the laser head moving rapidly along the X axis, marking the glass, as the rotary bed slowly rotates.

After approximately two minutes the etching process is complete. The result is a high quality, frosty appearance of your chosen artwork.
