Do not be intimidated by sandblasting! Most people who are not involved in the awards and recognition industry think of sandblasting as an industrial process.
Sandcarving is a great method for engraving products. Many businesses, including ARA member companies, use sandcarving in large and small production settings. Business owners or production managers usually have their preferences when it comes to abrasive and grit size. There are two abrasives commonly used for sandcarving: silicon carbide and aluminum oxide. Both are available in a range of grit sizes.
