Winter Graduation. Blenko Glass . Blenko is the Go To Place for Gifts!

Hilary,  Winter Graduation.  I need to have suggestions for gifts.  Don't suggest the WVU Logo items.  I can not afford these.   I need gift for female and male who is finishing Law School.  Please respond before 1/10/2013.  George D. 

George,  Blenko Glass www.blenkoglass.com  is always the 'GO TO PLACE' for gifts.  At Blenko you'll find something for everyone.  Glass is always perfect!  Its long lasting, and you can engrave for a few dollars.
One suggestion other than the on line Blenko store is to contact Ernie Downey who makes jewelry and also does plates ( he can take a graduation card or wedding invitation, or a photo and turn it into a plate.  Contact Ernie at Ernsglass@aol.com   If you have difficulty with this link,  email theblenkoproject@aol.com and we'll forward your contact info.   Having the opportunity to gift a handcrafted one of a kind item is amazing.  hjh

Last year I bought 6 water bottles blue and green
for grad gifts.
Took them to Touch of Glass for engraving ($10) my total cost was under $28 per gift.
Blenko is a hidden treasure for gift giving.

Hilary I like that you are concerned with cost.
Many docs would not think of this.
Most of us have a budget we must live within.

Two Questions
Will Ernie again teach this year?
What is the schedule?

Next question - Valentine's Day
Is blenko doing any special glass or special sale?

Hello Tiffany,
You may use the photos and posts for your news letter, but do refer to the blenko project website and blog.

I have to admit I was pretty disgusted by Blenko pulling out the classic 920 decanter and throwing a college logo on it. It reeked of throwing design and art to patronize a consumer mass market that will by anything with their "logo" on it.
