To get the edge over your competition, it helps to add sandcarving services. Sandcarving creates an attractive etch or carve on glass, stone, and other brittle surfaces that cannot be duplicated with other newer technology. The biggest strength with sandcarving is the depth you can achieve on brittle surfaces, which creates a higher perceived value, a 3-D look, and longer lasting image (for outdoor applications). Many companies offer seminars nationally that implement sandcarving, sublimation, and laser etching on the same material. These are great learning opportunities.
