What is Laser Etching and Engraving?
These two methods are often used interchangeably and although similar, offer different capabilities and results.
Both laser etching and engraving is a process using a computer-controlled laser to permanently cut an image or pattern into a hard material, such as glass, wood or metal, and sometimes leather.
Laser etching removes a certain ‘material’ or protective coat from the surface so that acid can etch an image. On the other hand, laser engraving directly marks the surface, creating a deeper indent and is usually reserved for projects on wood, metal plaques and plates.
