SET OF FOUR CONCRETE COASTERS. COLOR: GRAY OR WHITE
This personalized set of 4 concrete coasters is identical to our standard refined set except that it is customized with engraving. The font shown is helvetica in caps. The size of the font is =/-.375".
At this size, you can fit approximately 34 characters/spaces on our individual coasters, in order to fit more characters the size of the font can be reduced. If you opt for the longitudinal/latitudinal bearings for your customized coasters, just give us the bearings or the address of the subject and we can take it from there. Please note that this listing is for 4 coasters that are each engraved with the SAME information. An additional charge would apply in order to engrave each coaster with different information.
Our mix formulation yields an extremely dense variety of concrete. One of the benefits of our proprietary mix is that it can be engraved extraordinarily well. Crisp lines and striking contrast are evident with each and every character.
This set of four coasters measure 4" in diameter and approximately .25" thick. This set tends to be more refined than our more rustic, embossed, natural gray set which is approximately .4" to .5" thick. All coasters are backed with a cork bottom for added tabletop protection.
Please allow about 15 days for fabrication.
We believe that all of our coasters offer the benefit of being both absorbent and relatively stain resistant since the sealer that we use yields just the right porosity to our coasters. It is noteworthy to mention that the white color is the most stain resistant to the condensation/water stains that can occur with cold drinks. Please note that although they are sealed to resist staining, they will certainly develop character/patina over the years.
All of our items are one of a kind. Each unit is cast in a hand made mold for about a week. We then hand burnish each, and then apply two coats of FDA approved linseed oil.
This item is not composed of typical concrete. It has taken us years to perfect this mix design. All of our concrete items are composed of an advanced cementitious mix which utilizes extremely small particulate, as well as recycled granite and marble dust that we source locally from the countertop industry...The result is an incredibly strong, smooth, and tactile surface that is more similar in physical characteristics to ceramic or aluminum than it is to concrete!
Please note: While our concrete mix design yields an aesthetically predictable product, our concrete can display slight variation in color and in texture. This creation will only get better with age, developing rich character and patina as it ages. Because cement cures at an asymptotic rate, all of our concrete products actually get MORE durable as the years go by!
