Term of the Week: Sandcarving

The Term of the Week is a weekly feature where A&E turns to industry experts to define common tools, processes, language, etc. used in the awards, engraving, and personalization industry, including terminology within the business realm. Contact Printwear's digital content editor, Marley Jeranko, if you're interested in contributing and for an opportunity to be featured in our daily eNewsletter. 

Sandcarving is a process that involves blasting abrasive and compressed air, creating a sand stream that, when applied to the surface of a substrate (glass, metal, wood, stone, granite, etc.), roughens or eventually erodes the surface, creating depth.
