These two services are commonly interchanged when referring to permanent markings made on surfaces. The main difference of the two services is the method used – etching has a chemical process, while engraving uses a physical process.
Etching is used for ceramic, glass, marble, and metal surfaces. Laser engraving, on the other hand, is perfect for wood, acrylic, and leather crafts. Both will give a precise, permanent, and premium touch to your personalized items. Common applications include marking of trophies, and plaques as texts, detailed logos, and other artworks are possible.
