How to Print Letters On Shot Glasses

Shop for special glassware to complement your bar design when setting up a bar in your home. Most shot glasses come in plain shapes without any decoration. Design a painted monogram and make your current shot glasses resemble the souvenir shot glasses from your last vacation. Go with only one initial letter or spell out an entire name. Use your one-of-a-kind set of glasses for your next party.

  1. 1

    Wash the shot glasses with dish soap and hot water. Drain them upside down to air dry.

  2. 2

    Cut out the stencils you need to create your monogram. Tape the letter stencils together to hold them in place if you are using more than one letter. Place the stencil against the middle of the shot glass and tape around it to hold it in place.

  3. 3

    Squeeze out a small amount of glass paint onto a paper plate. The plate will act as a palette to hold the paint while you are working.

  4. 4

    Touch the top of a sponge pouncer to the paint. Pounce the paint over the stencil opening by tapping the sponge over and over on the opening. This will place paint into the opening without leaving any brush strokes.

  5. 5

    Pounce the paint until the opening is completely filled in. Leave the stencil in place until the paint dries. Remove the stencil paper after the paint is dry and monogram the rest of your glasses.
