Richard and Michael Lindeborg began the Suwanee, Georgia-based On-Site Systems (on-sitesystems.com) in 1985, doing decorative glass etching for designers, corporate offices, retail stores, and restaurants. The name derives from a technique the two men developed for doing etching and sandblasting on site without creating the mess of dust that the process usually entails. The company still uses its etching process, but recently it also acquired a digital printer to expand the shop’s capabilities.
