"Removing light sandblast pattern on stainless steel"

November 12, 2015

Q. I had a YETI tumbler cup personalized with a company logo. The cup appears to be brushed stainless steel and the logo looks frosted. The company that put the logo on the cup said they lightly sand blasted over a stencil to form the pattern. How can I safely remove the sandblasted logo without damage to the expensive SS cup? Can I match the brush finish so you cannot tell the logo existed?

A. Hi Robert. Well, you can sandblast the whole cup or you can re-brush the whole cup, but I doubt that either will be affordable. My plumber wants $95 for the visit before he does anything, and my roofer wants $150. I'm not sure a YETI cup is all that expensive compared to customized labor :-(

Regards and good luck,

A. Robert,
You can try using something like the Scratch-B-Gone kit from BarrysRestoreItAll [a finishing.com supporting advertiser], or any non-iron abrasive really, but actually matching the existing finish can be a hit or miss proposition.
