Shot glasses are trendy gifts and can be designed in a many ways, making them popular as wedding giveaways or souvenirs. Their versatility allows them to be used as décor or for exactly what they are made of: serving shots. The best place to shop for shot glasses for any particular event is online. Find a well-known online store that specialises in making personalised and engraved wedding souvenirs, and make sure that the company has its manufacturing facility to help reduce production costs.
Custom shot glasses can be designed effectively and cleanly with laser engraving. They can be decorated with silhouettes of the bride and groom, the initials of the couple, and other elements that can make a bespoke look. Shot glasses come in a variety of sizes, from the standard shape that can hold about 1.5 ounces of alcohol, to short and tall styles that are more contemporary. Some shot glasses have thicker and heavier bases to make them seem like they can hold more alcohol. Hence, they are called ‘cheater’ shot glasses. In reality, though, they are only able to hold 1.25 to 1.5 ounces of fluid.
A basic shot glass must have a thick bottom, thick walls, and enough room to hold the right amount of liquid. This is the type of shot glass that is usually personalised with an engraving. There are custom wedding gift companies that can engrave on tall shot glasses, too. A tall shot glass has a narrower and taller physique than the basic shot glass, and it may be a good option if you want a sleek-looking custom shot glass.
Custom shot glasses are elegant gifts, but make sure that they are made of the right materials. Glass is the norm, but some manufacturers may use other materials as ceramic, pewter, and metal. Go for custom shot glasses that are made of transparent and high-quality glass if you want a timeless and elegant design.
