We suggest using the outside of the letters part of vinyl (the part that would normally be thrown away once the actual letter was removed) to get a positive image on your baking dishes, or use the letters themselves and add a border around them so the etching cream has a boundary to stay within.
This is a great way to add something special to a basic wedding or shower gift that most anyone would be grateful for. There's nothing like walking over to the buffet at a party when all is said and done and staring at the empty dishes, guessing which one is yours.
