I can’t believe that I neglected to post this engraved wine bottle. As I was engraving at a Baytown HEB event the week of Valentine’s Day, there was a gentleman that requested to have a simple Valentine’s message engraved with calligraphy on his bottle. We decided to keep it very simple. I hope that she loved it. Cheers!
No puedo creer que olvidé mostrar esta botella del día de San Valentín. Yo estaba grabando a un HEB en Baytown y un caballero me preguntó grabar una botella para su novia. El mensaje era muy simple pero espero que la gustó. Salud!

When I was contacted by my friends at Anheuser-Busch to engrave calligraphy in Stella Artois glass chalices last weekend, I must admit that it completely escaped me that it was for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at the various Mo’s Irish Pubs in the Houston area. Naturally, many chalices of beer and Irish whiskey were consumed by the joyous crowds.
To say that it was fun would be an understatement. That night, I had the pleasure of engraving just under 200 chalices wth names in calligraphy. As always. it was a wonderful time.
Toward the end of the last event, there was a gentleman that approached my table and said “I’ve never seen a calligraphy engraving “booth” before”. I responded that there was a first time for everything :) I love my job.
Cuando mis amigos a Anheuser-Busch me contactaron sobre un trabajo para fin de semana pasado para grabar copas de Stella Artois, olvidé que lo era día de San Patricio. Ellos estuvieron celebrando el día a los Mo’s Irish Pubs en la area de Houston. Naturalmente, se disfrutan muchas copas de cerveza y whiskey.
La noche era muy ocupada pero he sido un placer para grabar nombres en las copas con caligrafía. Esa noche, tuve el placer para grabar 200 copas con nombres. Como siempre, lo era divertido.
Al fin de la noche, un hombre me dijo que nunca ha visto una barraca para caligrafía. Primer tiempo para todo. Me encanta mi trabajo. Que tengas un día maravilloso!

Slinging Ink® Calligraphy & Wine Bottle Engraving
It has been my pleasure over the years to engrave spirit bottles for various companies. One time of the year that I eagerly anticipate is Lunar New Year. I have the opportunity to go to Houston’s amazing Chinatown area in Bellaire and engrave cognac and whisky bottles throughout January & February. If you have not ventured to any of the restaurants in Houston’s Chinatown, you should stop what you are doing and treat yourself immediately. Upon first impression, you may find incredibly unassuming restaurants with service that may not be exactly five star. But the food…….the meticulous care that this taken in the preparation of food that, from the menu description, seems pedestrian is often mind-blowing and exceptionally inexpensive. Yes… as a vegan diner, give me Chinatown any day of the week. Truly.
At an engraving event last week, there was a bottle of this Johnnie Walker Blue that was presented to me. I have learned that every year, Johnnie Walker Blue creates a beautiful bottle to commemorate each Lunar New Year. This year is the Year of the Pig. The artwork on 3 sides of that whisky bottle is exceptionally beautiful. You have to remind yourself that “this is a spirit / liquor bottle” and not a painting.
I was asked to simply engrave “Chuc Mung Nam Moi 2019” which is Vietnamese for Happy New Year. (Please forgive my lack of proper accents over the vowels. My keyboard is not exhibiting them.) I was pleased with the result. The client was so pleased that she purchased a second bottle to be engraved as well.
Happy New Year 2019
