It’s official! The Crystal Blanc brand is now J.Charles! Actually, it always has been. Not that it was a secret.
Established in 1993, the name Crystal Blanc was chosen because we thought it best described what the market division was all about: providing blank glass and crystal to engravers. But times have changed and so have we. In fact, most of what is shipped to the engravers’ market is now engraved at the J.Charles facility!
So, what to expect?
Many new products!
Your J.Charles catalog features over 200 pages, including many products and services not previously seen in the Crystal Blanc catalog. New categories of note include many budget awards, acrylic, custom packaging, 4-color imprinting, color-fill and more!
The engraver's price list shows your cost for items when purchased blank. We think that in many cases you’ll find the pricing very favorable compared to the published prices listed in the catalog. Contact customer service for a copy of the engraver's price list.
Let us do the decorating for you
Because we produce thousands of pieces every day, our experience and technical capabilities make us extremely efficient. In fact, many engravers have us do the decorating for them because we can produce it more economically and give them an excellent quality deep etch or digital print. And we can drop-ship directly to your customers, meaning you can make money and never touch the product. Allowing us to do your decorating offsets freight charges and avoids the risk of costly rejects. Many have told us it’s more cost-effective than doing it themselves, especially considering there’s never a setup charge with proper electronic art. You can find the decorating costs in the back of the engraver's pricelist.
Blank orders will continue to ship no later than the following business day from our centrally located manufacturing facility in Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati. And better yet, they’ll arrive in our highly acclaimed, designer packaging.
As always, we appreciate your patronage and look forward to serving your needs.
