Laser granite photo engraving, also known as laser etching, is accomplished with a laser etching machine that works much like a printer, only it prints on stone instead of paper. Much of the laser granite photo engraving process is done by a graphic artist on a computer as the artist readies the photo to be engraved onto the granite.

The laser etching machine accesses the photograph to be engraved through a computer and etches the photograph onto the granite using a laser.
