Personalized Photograph on Bottle
Eugene, 19 years old, was traveling to see his family in his native town of Bolivia. He hadn't seen his grandparents in many years and wanted to give them a little something for their anniversary. Eugene bought a liquor bottle from NetCost Liquors but didn't think it was personal enough. He wanted to bring them something different and special from the "states". He asked if Crystal Swan Etchings could etch their photo on the back of the bottle wishing them a Happy Anniversary. Eugene's grandparents loved the gift and said they have never seen anything like it before. Thank goodness Eugene had the bottle personalized ... it was the only way customs wold let him bring it into the country!
