Support Local Business With Local Stained Glass

Have you ever walked around a farmers market or local craft fair. If you have, you might have noticed that many of the products were local to Kansas City or the surrounding cities. Local products, local businesses, local artists: all of these are very popular these days, as summarized by the saying “Think global, act local.”

Kansas City Stained Glass also believes in local businesses. When you contact us to design and build stained glass for your home or office, your stained glass will be built locally by our specially trained artisans close to home. Although we are a part of the largest stained glass studio of its kind in the nation, we like to offer our clients as personalized service as possible, and that means local designers and local craftsmen.

Although we do source our glass from the best manufacturers around the world, everything else is locally done. Here’s how our process works. First, we will send on of our designers to your home or office for a free consultation. The usual outcome of this meeting is a custom designed pattern for stained glass to fit the windows you’ve chosen. In the style and colors you’ve chosen, as well. You might choose an already existing pattern from a photo, or work with our designer to create something brand new.


Once the design is finalized, measured, and sketched out, we swing into action in our offices. The pattern or blueprint for your Kansas City Stained Glass panels will be rendered using CAD software. The materials will be ordered. And once the CAD pattern is approved, it all goes to the builder. Each window is fully constructed by hand, by one local artisan. That includes each piece of glass, cut by hand to the exact size specified in the pattern. It also includes hand cutting each of the little lead strips that hold all the glass pieces together.

Once the entire stained glass panel is constructed, it will be polished to a beautiful luster, and then installed in your home for you to enjoy for generations.

If you are looking for custom stained glass in Kansas City or the surrounding area, we’d love to show you what we can do. Why not contact us for that in-home appointment we were just talking about? Here at Kansas City Stained Glass, we truly appreciate your business and we know you will equally appreciate our high quality, locally made product. So please contact us today.
