WAYS TO MAKE YOUR SMALL BUSINESS STAND OUT WITH CUSTOM GLASS
As a small business, you only have one chance to make a first impression. Many free-standing businesses do this with immaculate landscaping. However, if your store is in a strip mall or on a main street, you may not have much lawn to speak of. Thus, the way to grab your customers' attention is with custom storefront glass. Many people love to window shop, so having the best custom glass where you can display your wares for all to see in a tasteful, appealing manner can make all the difference in whether your customer decides to walk through the door or not. With custom storefront glass, you can make an amazing first impression that will overall yield more sales.
Decorative glass used to be quite popular centuries ago. In fact, the art of glass blowing where heated glass is blown into beautiful colored shape began about 2,000 years ago and was one of the most popular ways to create glass objects, such as vases, other glassware, and decorative glass. Decorative glass continues in that same tradition where art is infused into the glass itself to make beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces for all to enjoy. You can have decorative glass almost anywhere, from floors and walls to fountains, waterfalls, skylights, windows, ceilings, glass dividers, and more. In fact, the more unique places you can think of where people wouldn't expect to find a beautiful piece of custom glass art, the more of an impression you'll make. The sky truly is the limit when it comes to decorative glass.
Stained glass has a long history and is most often associated with churches. This is because only the church had the money during the Middle Ages to produce stained glass as commoners didn't even have glass in their homes. Stained glass is glass that has been colored using metallic salts, or it can be made where the colors are painted onto the glass and then fused by firing in a kiln. To make stained glass, you have to have both the artistic skill to draw and design the artwork and the engineering ability to work with and place the glass.
Abraxis Art Glass & Doors specializes in stained glass for your church, home, or office. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, stained glass is a great way to do so. One, because most people only expect to see stained glass in houses of worship, and two, stained glass is so beautiful that you can literally arrest people where they stand. We also offer stained glass restoration services.
A very popular form of glass that many businesses love is kiln formed glass. This is where glass is heated up to extreme temperatures and then put into a mold to create shapes. It's also a way to create custom glass using objects and colors that can melt together to create unique pieces of art. Kiln formed glass is a great way to give your artwork texture. This form of custom glass making is popular for glass countertops, backsplashes, shower doors, table tops, room dividers, conference rooms, sinks, and more. There are different types of kilnforming to achieve the results you are looking for.
