Westbury, NY (PressExposure) April 06, 2009 -- The line of sandstone coasters that are offered by retailer http://Coasters.PebbleZ.com was nearly doubled today, with 20 new models being added to the catalog. These coasters consist mostly of American sandstone products, which are naturally absorbent, and are imprinted with various images ranging from animals and symbols, to depictions of nature and famous places throughout the world.
The expansion comes as an effect of the continued popularity of sandstone pieces for use in the design and manufacture of coasters. This material is perfectly suited to the job, because it has a naturally absorbent property. This allows the stone to soak up the moisture from a sweaty glass, holding it within its nearly invisible pores, and containing it until it can evaporate out into the air.
This expanded line is a bit of a departure from the companies normal offerings, which generally consist of products that emphasize their natural features. Instead the new coasters are emblazoned with customized images from a variety of talented artists.
The interesting thing about these images is that they are able to be imprinted on the porous sandstone, without clogging or interfering with those pores in any way. This allows them to offer a variety of unique printed coasters, without having to give up the absorbent properties which have made them so popular.
