The Glass Fox StoryThe Glass Fox is located in Bath, a picturesque hamlet in Michigan's lower peninsula. We do all of the glass etching shown on the website in house overlooking a tranquil lake. This is where our glass etching artisans do the beautiful work shown on our website. After the final inspection of each item, our shipper carefully packages your order for UPS to deliver throughout the USA and Canada. We have been etching glass since 1985 and online since 1999. In addition to providing personalized gifts for thousands of customers over the years, we have done gift items for four of Michigan's Governors, for presentation to visiting government and business dignitaries from around the world. We pride ourselves on our high standard of quality and customer service. All orders are processed through Yahoo! Store's secure site so your information is kept safe.
Our hours are 8:00AM - 6:00PM Monday - Friday, Eastern Standard Time.
How do you order from our site?All of the gift items listed in our store are organized into categories, and these categories are listed on the left-hand side of every page on our site ("christmas ornaments, barware, etc"). To look inside a category, click twice on it with the left mouse button. Once inside each category, you'll find a photograph and item name for every piece listed in that category. To learn details about an item, click twice (also known as "double-clicking") on the underlined name of the item with the left mouse button.
To enlarge a photo of an item, double click on it with the left mouse button.
All items on our site are represented by a photo and a descriptive text (paragraph) which describes the dimensions of the item, what it's made from (glass, crystal, ceramic, etc), and its design details. Many items have lettering style choices and where applicable examples of these are shown beside the photo of every item. DIRECTLY BENEATH the descriptive paragraph for every item are boxes with captions explaining each ("gift card message" "name of couple" "year established", etc) THIS IS WHERE YOU ENTER YOUR PERSONALIZED INFORMATION. You can "click" into these boxes and type information here.
If you hit the ADD TO CART button before entering your personalized info, the item will enter your shopping cart without all necessary personalization information. Should you not notice this, and you go ahead and buy the item, you would receive a call or an email from us regarding the missing information.
If you happen to notice that your shopping cart item does not include any personalized information, simply delete the item from your shopping cart (there is usually a button labeled "delete item" or something similar to this), hit the "return for more shopping" button to return you to our store (or sometimes you can use the "back" arrow in your browser window), click back to the item you wish to purchase, ENTER the PERSONALIZED INFORMATION in the boxes below the item description, and THEN hit the "Add to Cart" button.
Occasionally we hear from customers that they are confused because they are unable to enter their personalized information after they've placed the item into their shopping carts - we apologize for this confusion, but our store is designed so that ALL PERSONALIZED INFORMATION MUST BE ENTERED BEFORE SELECTING "Add To Cart".
