For our holidays this year, we decided to give personalized gifts. Using vinyl stencils and a sandblaster, we were able to achieve a nice, permanent personalization to several different surfaces. Let's take a look at how it's done, and then I'll show you some of the gifts created using these methods!

Step 1: What we'll need

We will need a few supplies before we take on this task:

1. Something to etch (Glass, stone, metal, etc.)
2. A design
3. Masking tape
4. A method of etching (We will use sandblasting, but there are also etching creams)
5. A resist (in this case a vinyl decal stencil) for each item (not reusable) to protect the area that won't be etched

If you're cutting your own resists either by hand or a vinyl cutter, you will need tools to weed and prep the vinyl:
1. Xacto Knife
2. Squeegee
3. Application Tape
looks great !
