If you can still read this shot glass, keep drinking

Need a personalized shot glass and I need it fast. Is there a store in NYC that can do this for me?

I realize that I can easily get a personalized shot glass online, but I need it by Friday, so it would be great if I could find somewhere in the area (New York City) to do it. All I need is a three-word phrase painted on the side of one glass. My brain is coming up empty on where to start looking, though. Suggestions?

Best answer: I would give a call to New Dimension Trophies, 6505 11th Ave in Brooklyn @ 718/236.8200. They came in cheap and on-time when I needed them last-minute in the past. Alpha Engraving in midtown also gets good reviews but I have not used them.

Best answer: You could etch it yourself. Call around to art supply stores and hardware stores to see if they sell glass etching cream. It's easy, and not very dangerous.

Things Remembered has a few.
No idea if any of their locations work for you though...

Seconding etching one yourself. Any craft store will have everything you need except the glass.

Response by poster: Oooh, I want to try etching it myself, especially since that new Michael's store opened uptown, but my tracing/hand-drawing artistic skills are awful. Looks like Alpha Engraving will do the trick, though. Thanks, everyone!
