One of our less-known but fantastic stained glass offerings is family crest stained glass. They are popular because they turn into cherished family heirlooms. They are also a form of -stained glass that is highly customizable. When customizing your family crest, we can use anything that represents your lineage: sigils, coat of arms, surname, and even your motto or slogan.
How Are Stained Glass Crests Created And What Do They Look Like?
As stated above, each family crest is individually crafted in our Houston stained glass studio. We have found the most common shape of family crests is octagonal, but the shape we use is up to you and your family members. These stained glass works of art are handmade and durable, so they are sure to last the ages and become a family heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation. Most of the stained glass family crests we do are panels that are hung on the wall. This means you can move them with you from house to house to keep them in the family. They also come with a lifetime transferable warranty so they can be passed on to the next generation. If properly maintained, these works of art will last over 100 years before needing repair!
Can I Give a Stained Glass Family Crest As A Gift?
You can absolutely gift a family crest stained glass panel to someone in your family. They make lovely and thoughtful gifts. We typically make these stained glass crests as panels to hang on a window or a wall. So, you can wrap them up and give them as gifts just like any other item. The best part about giving the gift of family crest stained glass is that the whole family will enjoy it when visiting or at family gatherings.
