New forest scenes, mountain scenes, bears, deer and much more appear on this new decal sheet. The sheet is 5x5 and can compliment several pendants. As all AAE Glass fused glass decals do, these fire true black and will not rub or wear off with wear.

AAE Glass Releases the Sports Icon Decal Sheet

We at AAE Glass are excited of the possibilities with the new Sports Icon fused glass decal sheet.
Do you have children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews, who participate in sports? Do you, yourself belong to a team of any kind?  If so, this is a great way to build team unity. 
Several glass artists we have talked to have great ideas when it comes to using these sports themed fused glass decals.  
A typical little league baseball team has 15 players, a typical basketball team has 12 players and a typical football team has 50+ players.  Not to mention all of the other sports and activities that take place in grammar school, high school and college.  That is a big pool of tight knit potential customers when you combine the players and their parents and grandparents.  The potential of free, word of mouth advertising for your glass art is great. 
Be sure to take advantage of the 5 pack discount for the larger orders you may receive.
If you have a creative marketing idea for your fused glass jewelry, but have questions, send an email to and he will be happy to work with you to "get the word out."

AAE Glass Decal Trading Post

We were speaking with one of our glass artists recently and he came up with an idea that made sense in regards to AAE Glass decal sheets.  When we hear an idea that we think will help our artists be more successful, we put it into action.
Many glass artists use our glass fusing decal sheets but have 1 or 2 designs per sheet that they tend not to use as much.  These images differ per glass artist, so the idea is to start this blog post and turn it into a trading post.
For example, if I have 3 mermaids, 2 butterflies and a cat image from various sheets that I won't use, but you have 2 trees, 3 birds and a lighthouse that you won't use, BUT I know I will use, why not make a trade if it works for both parties?  Think baseball cards or barbies.  This will keep your inventory of decals fresh and give you flexibility in your glass art work.
Obviously these transactions will not be affiliated with AAE Glass and we won't be responsible for damaged or missing decals, but it is an opportunity for you to partner with other glass artists and churn out more glass art while saving money.  We do ask that you only list AAE Glass decals for trade as many times we will get emails from people who have used decals from other sources and ask us, "Why didn't they fire black" or "Why did they look so mashed up after I fired them."  We can't answer these questions because we use a superior printing formula that eliminates any of these types of problems. We won't put out decals with inferior quality like these.  The people who read this blog and participate in this exchange are used to the best quality decals on the market, which are AAE Glass decals
I am excited to see what this turns into.  It may work, it may not, but either way, we took a stab at a new, inventive idea.
To get this started, please list the product number, decal sheet name and particular decals you are interested in trading.  You will also want to add the decals you are looking to receive in exchange with the same method. Please share this post with any glass artists you know who use AAE Glass decals and hopefully we can generate some movement.
