NUANCE COMBI 8-1/2 OZ.
The Combi wine works with most wines as modern day events can feature Red wine, white wine or combinations of both on the same table. For sand carving you can have one location as standard which could be applying the logo/message to the foot instead of the side if you wish. Or you can add the foot as an additional bottom location as well.
A great all around wine glass
The Nuance large Combi Wine glass is one that is selected very often for special events. This combi design works for red or white wine service. Usually the desire for red wine is a larger and more open bowl so that the fragrant bouquet of the wine can help to charge your senses as you sniff and sip the selection. With white wine, it is generally served chilled and in a taller and more narrow glass. With Champagnes and other bubbly wines, they serve well in a taller than wider glass which helps to keep the carbonation longer. The Nuance large Combi Wine glass encompasses a little from each of these requirements making it a very versatile piece for the special occasions.

E-2 PRINTING NEW!
LEHR FIRED PRINTING (COMMERCIAL GRADE)
Machine dishwashing should be avoided with any printed product to maintain its lasting beauty. Although our product is somewhat dishwasher resistant, a lot has gone on in the industry over the past year or two. A number of the companies that produce dishwasher detergents are adding a product called citric acid. In some cases, the concentrations of this type of acid are very high, and problems have begun to surface throughout the industry.
Every company is affected
These issues are not exclusive to us, as all decorators have been working toward different strategies to combat the problem. The citric acid and alkaline in the detergents sit on the glass and ceramic, and over time, begin to attack the surfaces. This does not just affect any printing, as it slowly breaks down the glass or ceramic body’s surface. Over time, the glass surfaces will start to look pitted or foggy, but what is actually happening is that the acids and alkali are softening the surface and then an actual tiny piece of the surface breaks away. Over time the entire surface begins to look very scratched and/or cloudy.
Can affect all production types
The same thing has begun to happen with the Lehr fired prints, and over time can break down the surface and begin to wash away. Ironically our E-2 printing, which is the cheaper version, is less affected by this phenomenon. However, E-2 is a baked enamel method similar to the auto body paint on your car, so it is less scratch-resistant. In commercial dishwashers, the chemicals used are different, and we rarely see this issue.
Although Lehr firing is still the more durable, we usually recommend its use in commercial settings, in domestic locations, where promotional glassware tends to be, we recommend going with the “E-2” product. These combinations appear to be the best scenarios for the current market. In some cases where it is necessary to use transfers, Lehr firing is the only option.
Again, the issues noted above are rare but do exist, so we would always encourage hand washing where possible. As a result of these recent changes in the industry, we, unfortunately, do not offer a warranty on dishwasher resistance on our products.
One last note.
Due to the construction of ALL stainless steel type tumblers and cups, they should always be hand washed and should not be put in the dishwasher.
