All I do is crystal or glass so I sand carve/blast everything. For me it gives the best finish whether the item be crystal, jade or cheaper soda glass.

I have no experience of lasering however any glass/crystal samples I have seen (which might be old now to be fair) do not stand up to close inspection when compared to a sand carved inscription. Talking about depth and density of image together with smoother outlines etc.

I'm guessing more modern lasers may have addressed the smoothness/density of the image however they'll never have any depth or texture to the finished engraving.

I didn't even know you could 'burn' glass with a laser. How does it look?
