If you are concerned about lead levels in those painted super-hero drinking glasses, you might want to consider switching to etched glass instead. Taverncraft has announced they have entered into an agreement with Marvel to sell a line of tankards, mugs, and steins etched with the likenesses of Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain America.
“Fans who are used to standard silk-screened steins and glasses are going to be in for a pleasant surprise,” said 3 Point Entertainment President Jerry Bennington. “The deep etching really brings out the detail in the characters, and offers a dimensionality that you just can’t get from simply applying an image onto the surface. Whether buying a set for yourself or as a holiday gift, fans will be able to see and appreciate the high quality and unsurpassed durability of our Marvel deep-etched glasses and steins.”
There are some good deals on pint and mug combos, with the price coming in at $29.99. It’s a great gift to give a comic book fan, so you can all raise a pint and toast some holiday cheer.
