What's in an engraving?

Letterpress is easily one of the most popular forms of artisan stationery printing, but what about engraving? This video from The Crane Insider illustrates the process of copper plate engraving (after 4:45, you'll find out how thermography is applied to stationery).

Print making has always interested me - specifically screen printing, letterpress and engraving which produce results that have an attractive look and feel.
