Engravers are artists that etch specific designs, words, and even images onto different types of materials. The design or the image is based on a client’s specifications or the artist’s own personal designs. A modern engraver can use precision lasers to achieve their final results, or they may use hand tools and a magnifying glass depending on how they have been trained. They can work on glass, metal, stone, wood and other materials, and they can also engrave and create custom plates made of metal or wood that can be used for stamping images on paper.
