Hand Engraving

Colonial Williamsburg engravers are among the few who still practice the craft of hand engraving in the time-honored manner. Other than working by sunlight, the craft practiced today is little changed from that of two centuries ago.

Machine Engraving

Machine engraving differs from hand engraving in that, rather than cutting lines out of the metal, the diamond-point tool on the Pantograph machine pushes the metal to the side.
