Engraving as an industrial term covers a range of different machines and processes. However, what it means according to the dictionary is;
“to cut figures, letters etc. on, with a chisel or graver; to represent on wood metal etc. by carving with a graver; to inscribe or decorate with figures, etc. to imprint; to impress deeply; to practise the art of Engraving.”
Essentially engraving is a means to mark or decorate hard materials, usually for sign works, or as markings on designed products. No matter what sort of machine is used to mark the materials, it is still Engraving. However, we break the term down into three distinctive types; Manual Engraving, Computer Engraving and Laser Engraving. Our workshop is equipped with all three types of machine.
