Engraving refers to a fabrication process that is used to carve a pattern or design into the surface of a hard material. It is typically used to create impressions on metal, stone, plastic, or glass and can be done by hand or with lasers depending on the substrate. While similar to etching, engraved designs remove more material and make deeper cuts, resulting in a long-lasting, highly visible expression.
