I’m working on getting a Macbook Air laser etched so I set out this morning to find a vendor in Houston that could do it for me. Searching for ‘laser etching macbook’ I found an article on the Make Magazine website mentioning that they used an Epilog Laser.
So I talked to Epilog Laser and they gave me the name of their distributor in Texas, Engraving Concepts.
And then the nice people at Engraving Concepts recommended a few different companies for my laptop etching job:
Texas Laser Creations
Hope this is useful to others!
UPDATE: Here’s the design I came up with:
(The artwork came from vectorstock.com, the template from Instructables, and I’m having the etching done by Monarch Trophies. They’ve never done laptops before but they have 4 Epilog lasers and after reading the online resources on laser etching the Macbook, they were comfortable taking on the project. They’re charging me about $50 — $15 for setup and $35 for the actual etching.)
UPDATE 2: I ended up going with Monarch Trophy. Here are photographs of the final laser-etched Macbook Air.
