Publication dates are random and unpredictable and often filled with helpful information for wannabe Calligraphers and Engravers…as well as those who already are! Your input is welcomed and appreciated.
For the third year, I’ve been booked to set up my equipment at a conference table in the two large distributors of wine and spirits in the Dallas area. On this day, with two helpers from the distributor, we unpacked, engraved, colored, and repacked just under 400 bottles of wine in a bit over 5 hours. Four messages were spread evenly across all the bottles so the finished cases could be delivered to the MS stores placing the orders. I engraved CHEERS! CELEBRATE! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! & HAPPY NEW YEAR! on them.
A week later, at another distributor, there was a similar effort with other brands they provided Market Street wine departments.
With 4 weeks to go until Christmas, there are literally a couple of thousand bottles still to be engraved before Santa slithers down the chimney to get his own glass at a few places on his route.
For those wannabe engravers, still on the fence, you’re missing amazing opportunities to be doing this where you live. Our next Workshop is in January and we also have one scheduled in February. See details here. Call me if you have questions or want to join out tiny group of engravers scattered about the U.S.A. and Canada. Also have one in Argentina and another came from Seoul, South Korea.
P.S. If you’d like to stop in and buy a bottle….or just see how the events work if you’re interested in learning the skill, here is the schedule of my events in the MARKET STREET CHAIN.
