Beautiful beverage coasters for birding enthusiasts!
The Jim Rathert Summer Sandstone Coaster Collection includes four original Jim Rathert designs: Bluebird, Cardinal, Goldfinch, & Indigo Blue Bunting featured on a cheerful bright days, surrounded by the full bloom of summer. These fine sandstone coasters protect your furniture and capture the exquisite detail and brilliant colors of our natural subjects. Only the dye sublimation process produces a photo quality image and durable hard surface. Water beads up beautifully around the base of the glass and does not run off of the edges. Condensation does not absorb into the coaster as with other coasters. Simply wipe excess moisture when finished. Coasters are 4" in diameter and 1/4" thick. Each coaster comes with a cork backing.
Our unique, state-of-the-art process features the highly rated polymer formulation that provides resistance to UV light damage and scratching. This fine grain man-made sandstone is round and has slightly beveled edges. The image is baked into the coaster by multi-step process called dye sublimation. This is the only process that provides such detail, rich color and permanence. A cork disk is placed on bottom to protect fine furniture.
