The shot glasses are a limited quantity item. I wanted to see if shot glasses would pick up traction in the shop. If they do sell well, I'll then have them as a permanent item, and you'll be able to customize them. 

I created this shot glass using sublimation.

 

What is sublimation? From Wikipedia, "Sublimation is the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase, without passing through the intermediate liquid phase." Sublimation ink is a specialized ink that, when heated to high temperatures, turns into a gas and transfers onto certain materials, thus making it part of the material. The carrier for the ink is paper. Sublimation is a way to add full-color decorations and designs to items without using vinyl. It absorbs directly into the material, so the original texture and feel are not changed. It is IN the material, not ON the material (like vinyl would be).
