Summer Bluebird Sandstone Ceramic Coaster
The Jim Rathert Bluebird Sandstone Coaster is an original Jim Rathert Bluebird image features a beautiful male bluebird on a cheerful bright day, surrounded by the full bloom of summer. This fine sandstone coaster protects your furniture and captures the exquisite detail and brilliant colors of it's 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. Coaster is 4" in diameter and 1/4" thick. 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.
Individually Designed & Printed in the U.S.A.
