    question @lampin;

    how deep is the normal etching? is it deep enough to erase the normal scratch marks on electronic gadgets?

    Update! The people at DCIPhil are very accommodating. I was given a very big discount since I was their first customer to have that kind of job request. For their contact details kindly refer to an earlier post. Important notes:

    1. Choose your design well, because this is permanent.
    2. You can easily request for the intensity of the laser etching. I chose a lighter one to create a subtle effect that's why it is not very visible from afar. It actually looks like a hologram.
    3. This service is good for laptops without warranty.
    4. This can turn your scratch-infested laptop into a masterpiece.
    5. The machine, I believe, works on almost all types of surface (paper, wood, plastic, glass, metal, etc.)
    5. They also do laser etching on almost anything, as in anything.
    6. Just ask them if you still have questions. Hehehe!

    here are the pics:
