Would it be safe to engrave the outside of my Mac?

Think you could do this yourself? We don't dare you.


Etch It

We’d never subject a MacBook Pro to the engraving tip of our Dremel moto-tool (well, never again, anyway), but we’d happily trust it to a space-age computer-controlled laser-etching machine. As fate would have it, ETCHamac has just such a machine. You supply a custom design and some cash (up to $100) for a full-cover MacBook Pro etching, and either send in your ’Book, or tack on an extra $35 to have ETCHamac send you a new cover piece engraved with your design. Besides the chance to use your own unique design, laser etching is extra cool because the design takes on a different look when it’s viewed from different angles.

Do they do MacBook non-Pros?



Their website says that yes, you can etch an iBook/MacBook. I personally wouldn't have thought so because etching is usually used on metals.
