Jester369 had some wicked sweet pint glasses printed up (I *swear* there's a picture of them somewhere...). Not too much $$, either, IIRC (but only two-color printing). Dude's had some printed up recently, too. Might touch base with those guys if they don't chime in.

I don't know what the deal is but many of the pints I have purchased the artwork does not make it through the diswasher. But, the one color printing on some of them holds great. I don't know what the different process is. I had one glass from a beer festival that completely lost the front color logo but the printed one color sponsors logos has not faded a bit.

you have a great point I really love the printing on the Lost Coast Brewery pint glasses I have had some of those for well over 3 years now and not even a scratch on them and I have some from other places and a year later the printing is almost gone.

Dude just got some made. Not sure if you'll find any much cheaper.

:off: How close are you to opening your place? I was just in Redding last week and will probably be driving through again in April.
I just updated that link with a pic. I'm fairly satisfied with them, considering the price.

jaybird, if you are ordering 500 of them, they'll get cheaper in bulk. WAY cheaper. I'd recommend www.discountmugs.com , I really would. Great CS, good competitive price, and DAMN fast.

Sorry - no clue about dishwasher durability. I wash my beer glasses by hand. My dishwasher makes all my glasses cloudy over time.
