Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sandcarving?

Sandcarving (also called "sandblasting") is an artistic process that permanently carves a design using pressurized abrasive grit. We sandblast onto glass, glazed ceramics, and stainless steel, but sandblasting can also be done on other hard materials like stone.

I create digital art, which I print onto transparency film, and then use to create a self-adhesive photo-emulsion stencil specifically for sandblasting. Each item has this single-use stencil applied to its surface with a burnisher, then it’s carefully masked. The final etching step is a trip into our professional blasting cabinet, where high-pressure silicon carbide grit carves the permanent design.

Watch videos about our process on YouTube.

Is Sandcarving Permanent?

Sandcarving is one of the most durable image transfer method out there. Since the process removes the top layer of glass or ceramic glaze by carving into it, there isn't any possible way to remove the design.

There are a lot of decals and screen printing out there on dishware that wear off with time. Our process will never do that! Sandblasting also has a smooth, even finish with crisp edges, unlike laser-etching which shows a matrix pattern on its etched surface, and acid cream etching which can be splotchy, and uneven.

Are Your Products Dishwasher- and Microwave-Safe?

Yes! All our glassware and ceramics are food-safe, and can be washed in a dishwasher, and some can even be sanitized. The design will never fade, wear, or scratch. We recommend hand-washing silicone travel lids with unscented soap.

All mugs are microwave-safe as well, and shouldn't get any hotter than any other microwave-safe cups. 

Our metal cups should definitely not go in a microwave (yikes!), but they are dishwasher-safe.

Are Your Products Made in USA?

We buy blank glass and ceramic items, and sandblast our original artwork onto them by hand in Portland, OR. Our "budget" mugs are made in China. Recycled glassware is made in Spain. Our regular pint glasses are made in China or Mexico. We have many American-made glassware options and locally-made handmade mugs that we sandblast as well.

Are Your Products Lead-Free?

We hold all our products to exacting standards (since our family uses them, too), so all products are free of lead, cadmium, and BPA. We're happy to share glaze reports if you'd like to see more data about safety.

The glazes used on our budget mugs meet California’s Proposition 65 strict limits for leaching of lead and cadmium (0.99 ppm lead and 7.92 ppm cadmium). In fact, our glazes are non-detect at testing detection limits well below (< 0.01 ppm for both). This is really fantastic!

What is the Life Expectancy of Your Products?

Technically, they should be able to last multiple lifetimes. We understand that accidents happen, and our items are definitely fragile, but they aren't any more fragile than most other dishware on the market. We consider them more sturdy than some other brands available, and keep our standards quite high for durability.

To prolong the life of your Bread and Badger cups and avoid breakage, we recommend against nesting (stacking them inside or on top of each other).

Some staining of silicone lids is unavoidable on lighter colors, so we recommend choosing darker colored lids if this bothers you.

Why does my cup have imperfections?

We do not manufacture glassware or ceramic items ourselves, so we work with materials we have tested ourselves and found to be sturdy and of high quality.

>Some pieces may have minor imperfections on them. We try our best to only use pieces with the least amount of imperfections, but some tiny bubbles in glass and inconsistencies in ceramic glazes are unavoidable, especially the handmade mugs and recycled glass items.

              My New Mugs!!

              Amanda was so nice and helpful to make my orders possible. To make a long story short, I have one of their mugs over 5 years. I use it everyday, and it has been my favorite mug. We recently had an accident and broke it. It was one of their older design, which no longer on their site. But Amanda took time, not only she found and happily made the same one for us, she made sure it arrives on time and in a very secured packaging. AND she found the retired color (yellow-my favorite color) mug and kindly suggested me if I want. What a thoughtful and smart business mind?!
              I can’t tell more how wonderful their service is. It is so wonderful to see how artists take pride in their work and service. I wish the company like Bread and Badger will prosper for many many years to come.

              High Quality, Friendly and Great Service

              My wife had a well-loved mug from Bread & Badger, but we needed to replace it due to a dishwasher accident. Even though the original design was no longer in stock, Amanda brought the design out of retirement. She happened to have a few of the original mug types in stock, and she even offered to enlarge the design for free. She did a great job, and was a pleasure to communicate with. We've collected lots of her work over the years, and will continue to do so!

              When we received these mugs, we were in WOW! These mugs were beautiful and flawless.

              What makes us so great?

              Engravings You Can Feel

              Our original art is designed specifically with sandblasting in mind. We deeply carve a 3-D graphic into each cup's surface so you can feel the quality.

              Permanent Forever

              We know you don't want to hand-wash your dishes. Our engraved designs won't fade or wear away, even after years of use and running through a dishwasher.

              Shipped Fast + Secure

              We get your new cups into your hands as fast as possible, while also providing beautiful packaging that feels like opening a gift, even if it's just for yourself.
