Etching vs Engraving vs Laser Cutting
Each of these methods has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
Chemical etching is a process that uses an acid to eat away at the metal, leaving behind the design. It's a fairly cheap process, and can be used to create fairly detailed designs. However, it can also be quite dangerous, as the acid can be harmful if it comes into contact with skin or eyes.
Metal engraving is a process that uses a sharp tool to carve away the metal, leaving behind the design. It's a more expensive process than chemical etching, but it's also much safer. It produces less detail than chemical etching, but it does produce a cleaner finish.
Laser cutting is a manufacturing process that uses a laser to cut materials, usually metals, by melting them with the laser beam. This creates very precise cuts and engravings with a high degree of accuracy. This method is employed when a metal card requires a cut all the way through or an interesting custom shape around the perimeter / edge.
