How is etching different from engraving?

The primary difference between them is that engraving is a physical process and etching is a chemical process. An engraver uses sharp tools to cut lines directly into a surface, while an etcher blasts lines into a surface with an abrasive material.

Can you engrave on items I already have?

Unfortunately, no.  We cannot engrave items you own.

What is the minimum number of pieces I need to get engraved?

With most of the items we sell, we can engrave a single item.  No large quantities required!
