Laser etching services

Laser etching is an increasingly popular service offered to schools and organisations aiming to personalise technology and permanently mark devices for security purposes.  Here at the Innovation Centre we are frequently requested to etch laptops, Kindles, iPads, iPods, tablet devices and mobile phones, whether old or new. If you have an item that is not listed which you would like etching please get in touch - most plastic, aluminium or wooden items work well. 

Our designer will work with you to tailor the layout and specifics of the design to your needs, whether that’s a simple line or paragraph of text, or with graphics, logos and unique numbers to help track and identify the device as your property. If you don’t have suitable graphics files available, we can convert what you do have to work with our laser etching machine and we can keep your design on file for any future devices.

Etching allows devices to be easily recognisable as your property when they are used outside of your organisation and in the unfortunate event of items being stolen, laser etching enables recovered property to be returned to their owner.
