Sarg, what is the difference between stamping and engraving? Aren they the same thing?
The two processes are entirely different. Engraving merely scratches the surface to create text. Stamping actually changes the shape of the metal into the character just like the text on a credit card. In the stamping process, each letter must have its own die and thus the size and font of each letter is not easily changed. Authentic military dog tags are stamped. Stamped text can be either Emboss or Indent.
