Fresh Northwest Design Toasts Happy Couples with Engraved Wedding-Themed Bottles

Customized, Handcrafted Bottle Designs Make Valuable and Unique Proposals, Invitations and Keepsakes

SEATTLE, Wash. — (February 11, 2008) — Inspired by connubial bliss and wine devotion, Fresh Northwest Design (FNWD) has come up with seemingly endless ways to commemorate that special day with custom designed, hand etched and painted wine bottles.

The premier glass engraving studio in the United States, FNWD introduces a library of templates designed expressly for weddings and romance (visit to view the entire gallery). Styles range from classic to contemporary, sentimental to whimsical, and customization is a given part of the process.

Creative and romantic uses of FNWD’s bottles include:

Says owner Scott Schoenen, “Our bottles are unique and high end, quite unlike anything most people have ever seen. The craftsmanship that goes into each bottle makes them works of art and people see them as keepsakes.”

Clients may choose the wine and the shape or size of bottle, from standard 750ml to the very rare “Primat” format (27 liters, the equivalent of 36 standard wine bottles). The hand etching method—as opposed to a laser process—does not affect the temperature of the wine inside.

If needed, FNWD can assist couples and their wedding planners with selecting a winery and collaborate with them to come up with a custom design, start to finish. FNWD is happy to incorporate photos or illustrations, names, dates, or a combination of elements. Although FNWD specializes in wine bottles, the artists can work on any glass or ceramic item.

Choosing a vintage that will age beautifully in the bottle is a perfect way to commemorate a union: Both improve with the passing of time!

Founded in 1989, Fresh Northwest Design custom designs, engraves and hand paints wine bottles for wineries, corporate businesses, universities and charitable events. From their studio in Gig Harbor, Wash., highly skilled artists use expert techniques to produce superior quality and innovative designs.
