Laser etching / engraving

Laser etching involves removing the first layer of a finish to reveal a chosen pattern or logo, which stands out due to the difference in color between the two layers.

Laser engraving involves removing a greater depth of material in a desired shape (serial number, logo, etc.). It is therefore permanent and highly resistant to abrasion.
