    IPAD Kindle Engraving

    Have a customer that wants a simple engraving on her IPAD & Kindle. Did a search and found some info on doing Kindles that looks easy. How about the IPAD? Is it metal or plastic? The videos I've seen it looks like aluminum. If metal, do you use Cermark or laser direct? Customer just wants a name/phone for ID purposes.

    Any assistance appreciated.

    I have lasered a few Ipads, they are anodized aluminum. There isn't much contrast when you laser clear anodized aluminum but all my customers have liked it. I haven't had much luck with Cermark and anodized, even using their compound especially for anodized. Use high speed and low power, it will turn out fine.

    I have done so much with so little for so long, that I can do almost anything with practically nothing...
