About Us

A long time ago in a dorm room far, far away...

...Etching Expressions was born. From our humble beginnings at San Diego State University in the early 1990’s doing custom labeled wine for fraternity and sorority parties, Etching Expressions has come a long way.

At the time, personalized products and digital printing was not as common. Creating personalized gifts, especially personalized wine gifts really stood out. Etching Expressions only did customized labels at first. Mainly we did mini champagne bottle favors for weddings and college parties, as well as single bottles for birthdays and personalized anniversary wine gifts. Since that time our personalized gift catalog has expanded significantly.

Etching Expressions evolved from a primarily personalized label company to one that focuses mostly on etched wine bottles as well as etched beer and etched liquor bottles. While we also have added a wide range of gift accessories, including traditional custom wood boxes, personalized etched bottles are what we are primarily known for today.
