FAQs for Laser Engraving and Laser Cutting

What is the difference between laser engraving and laser etching?

While the terms laser engraved and laser etched are used interchangeable at times, they are different processes with different end results.

Laser engraving is the  process where we uses our laser technology to physically remove material and create a permanent marking when engraved copy and graphics. The laser engraving process makes the copy and graphics “recessed” into the surface if the material. You would be able to feel the recessed copy and graphics if you ran you fingers across the laser engraved area. Permel can laser engrave products like lamacoidsnametags, acrylic, some plastics, and some coated metal products to leave a clean, crisp, and permanent client copy.

Laser etching is when we use our laser technology to alter the surface of the material and the laser beam “marks” the the copy and graphics on the surface without removing any material. Laser etching can change the colour of the area where the copy and graphics are “marked”. After laser etching the area is smooth and does not have a recess feel to the copy and graphics. Permel can laser etched items like acrylic, awards, glassware, stainless steel cable tagsYeti Tumblers, and even wood products.  Laser etching is creates a clean, crisp, easily to read copy and graphics and is idea for industrial markings applications like adding serial numbers to client supplied items and great promotional items like Yeti Laser Etched Tumblers.

In summary, laser engraving involves the removal of material to create a deep, permanent mark, while laser etching alters the surface without significant material removal, resulting in a shallower and often less tactile mark. The choice between engraving and etching depends on the specific application, material, and desired appearance of the marking.
