This may have been addressed before but I never needed the info, so I never paid attention :-/. I have a beautiful glass that came from (I am guessing) a well-known bar, with the name of the bar on it. I want to use the glass as a candle holder, but I cannot seem to get the lettering to budge! I have tried scraping, and the letters do not move. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get this lettering off of the glass?

Often these advertising containers have fused (or melted into the glass) printing. No easy way unless you can sandblast the lettering off, but if it worked, then the glass would be frosted.
