Some people may become confused at the beginning regarding the differences between etching and engraving. When you say engraving, this is known as a physical process wherein you need to use tools in order to penetrate a hard object. There are instances when you would like to engrave on things that will provide you with a memory of something.

For example, people usually engrave on headstones because this is where they place the names of their loved ones who have already passed on. Some may engrave on rings to make them remember their loved ones. When you say etching, this means that you are going to do a chemical process to ensure that it will take place. An etcher would need to use acid in order to create the needed designs.
