You can’t blame yourself if you don’t know the difference between etching and engraving. After all, the two processes look too similar. The truth is they are both pretty far from each other. In fact, you can ask other people and they would also think the two processes are the same. Anyway, they are pretty far from each other and that is never a good thing for those people who thought they are the same. Both are done on surfaces though but then again there are a lot of processes done on surfaces. Come to think of it, you can name a few right from the top of your head. To know the difference, you can simply search it on Google. There will definitely be answers on one of the Google questions. If you don’t see the answer there, then there must be something wrong with your server. It should be there and it should not be hard to spot. In fact, it should not take you too long to know the difference. The only thing that will stop you is the Internet connection. You must know that this is not one of those things that will be give to you on a silver platter. When you don’t understand some terms, look them up in the dictionary. You can also ask someone who has been in the etching and engraving industry for a long time and they will tell you the difference. Of course, that is for people who are not fond of searching for things on the Internet. Yes, there are people who would rather know the difference from other people. You can’t blame them for doing so because that would be faster. It would also be sweet to know it from people who are pretty good with what they do.
The first difference between the two words is obviously the spelling. You would not want that to happen when you would end up laughing at yourself. It is an old joke but you should not mention that when the topic is suddenly serious. You would want to know the difference eventually when you want to do some engraving. It would not take you long to do so because it is a piece of cake for most professionals. You must not ask the opinion of someone who does not really know anything in the industry though. You must ask someone who knows what he is doing. If you get the wrong answer then you really don’t learn anything. That is never good in any industry as it would be great to learn something new each day. The smell won’t let you see the difference between the two. They pretty much give off the same smell and you won’t need to distinguish that. Besides, it would be better to look in the dictionary and find both words. You may even learn a few more words when you see the words that are near both words in the dictionary which is normal.
