custom key fob engraving

I work at a trophy shop and have access to a laser engraver so I decided to engrave my key fob to add a little custom flair. Pm me if you want yours done through the shop. I ended up color filling mine white to match my summit white 14 rs.

Would we just send the cover plate? What are we looking at $$ for the engraving?

I wasn't intending on selling this. I showed my boss and he said we could do it through the store no problem. PM me so I dont break forum rules and I will give you details. It would be going through a nationally known trophy company, so everything would be legit for everyone and done very professional.

Pretty cool Can you do other things too? Not sure exactly how to word this, but what is the width of the laser? .015" or something?

we can put practically anything in the laser and engrave it as long as it is a piece within the 2 feet x 1 foot table size. I have been customizing almost everything I owned for years in these lasers, I just recently bought my 14 RS and joined this forum to figure some mods out and came across someone asking about fob painting and customizing so i figured I would post this. But pretty much anything you want custom engraved, we can do. PM me for ideas. My boss is willing to let me expand our limits from just awards and trophies. We are Crown Trophy Tampa, so if you are in the area, you are more than welcome to come by too. Ask for Jeff.

I missed the width of the laser part. It doesnt work like that. any artwork that I have on my screen can be transferred to my laser that acts like a printer. you are not limited to line art. We have done some pretty cool things with this. sky is the limit. We can cut out any shape and engrave onto almost any surface. The only limit we have is the laser can not cut odd shapes out of metal. We have nice thick and thin plastic though that we can cut and engrave. I had a 94 camaro years ago and actually scanned my old speedo bezel and transfered the lines to our laser program and cut out colors to replace the stock grey and black.

I have a couple laser engravers too, a very handy toys. I used mine to make acrylic speaker ambient glow rings, and ambient LED cup holder, as well as various engraved vinyl stickers, ABS boxes, bezels and panels and light bars.

I'll be getting this done once I finally take delivery from the factory. Is the faceplate fairly easy to pop off and when you put it back on was it snug like brand new?

Could you do the Autobot emblem? And any idea how well the paint holds up?

That's pretty sweet! Those engravers are cool if you have access to them.
I engraved a custom CAI cover on the one I have at work. Took 3 days to draw and 15 minutes to engrave.
