Increase your profits with sandblasting

Crystal Galleries Technical Sales Manager, Michaela O’Halloran who specialises in sales for photoresist films, cabinets and consumables has a wealth of knowledge and industry experience.

Her skills include offering training to customers in all aspects of sandblast engraving as well as providing education opportunities through glass decoration workshops. She has met and shared her skills and knowledge with customers from around the world and helped them find solutions to develop their businesses, without the need for huge investment. In this feature she talks about how you can increase profit with the sandblasting technique.

Understanding which decoration technique is the most effective and at the same time economically profitable can be a difficult process. If you are considering sandblasting here are some things that Michaela believes can make it the right choice for you:

“I’m a great fan of sandblasting, it not only offers value for money but it gives you a look of a manufactured decoration with a personal touch on each glass. You can also achieve a forever lasting logo that is extremely hardwearing.

These things immediately increase the perceived value of your product, enabling you to sell sandblasted glassware for a higher return on your investment”
