There are many different ways to etch glass with a laser engraver. Although it is sometimes called glass engraving, it has a shallower indentation on the substrate. The accuracy of the design is astounding, and you can produce an elegant finished product faster than any other type of glass etching process. Some industries that use laser cutters to etch glass include:

Personal engraving: Many people use laser cutters at home to provide custom engraving services. It's a low-cost, low-volume business idea. With a little practice, it's easy to program a laser cutter to add names and signatures using 2D drafting software.

Personalized Gifts: The customization trend is growing and shows no signs of stopping. Now laser cutters are easier to use and easier to stamp names or cute messages on gifts. These keepsakes have real emotional value and look beautiful as ornaments.

Merchandise: Any company can take full advantage of a laser cutter to create gorgeous, customizable merchandise for their brand. Add your logo to the glass, then give it away or sell it, and as long as the customer owns the glass, your brand will be in the customer's home.

Decoration: People don't just decorate for the holidays; it's become a habit to add appropriate decorations every season. Create stunning glass decorations for people to display at home.

Water glasses and water bottles: Demand for reusable containers and glasses is on the rise as we understand the unnecessary impact of single-use plastics on the planet. Glass is hygienic, beautiful and easy to clean, so many people use it. You can add your name, logo or message to people's glasses or bottles for a small fee.

Mirrors: Everyone has at least one mirror in their home, and personalized, decorative mirrors are definitely not an oversaturated niche.

Automotive: Windshields, mirrors and lights can be etched - except for certain parts of the body of some models. One of the best ways to personalize your car is to have your design, logo or signature engraved somewhere.

For larger businesses, sandblasting and acid etching may be better. However, if you're a small to medium business and thinking about your next marketing campaign, research how simple and effective strategies can be including creating your own branded glassware.
