Jan 6, 2007, 10:42 AM
I'm waiting until tuesday to order an iPod from the apple store and I don't know what text I want on it. Do you have it engraved and if so what is written on it. Give me some ideas ...

Jan 6, 2007, 01:58 PM
I have an iPod Photo and an iPod Shuffle (2G) and neither are ingraved. I can't really help with ideas, but I perfer a cleaner look on my iPods.

Jan 6, 2007, 02:03 PM
i don't have anything either. But if i would put something it would be....
"Damn near perfect"

Jan 6, 2007, 02:04 PM
I had to look to see what was engraved on my Nano cause I rarely use it :rolleyes:

Line 1: [My full name here]
Line 2: P huNgy

Jan 6, 2007, 02:04 PM
I would put "Damn Near Perfect" on my older iPod, and "Damn Perfect" on my newer one :cool:

Jan 6, 2007, 02:15 PM
I just got my nano and nothings on it and it looks clean clean clean.

Jan 6, 2007, 02:18 PM
My mom's 4gb nano has "Ciao Bella" engraved in it.

"Hello Beautiful" in Italian. :)

I was going to put a personalization on mine, but I got one as a gift a short time later. It would've been, "Yes I'm White, And No, I can't Dance."

I would only personalize if I was giving it to someone else.

Actually, name and address would be useful if some bastard ever decided to try and take it.

On my 4th Gen iPod i put:

Hard work never killed any-
body, but y take the chance

I was watchin American Hot Rod at that time and one of the builders, Roy, said that quote.

I went with practical over witty:

Line 1: Full Name
Line 2: e-mail address

I guess I figured if I lost it at school (small veterinary medicine program), I'd be more likely to get it back if people knew whose it was. Also, I couldn't come up with something witty.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:09 PM
like a few other people, scratches. I can't come up with anything interesting.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:11 PM
My name and mobile phone number.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:13 PM
My name and mobile phone number.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:15 PM
what are you going to engrave your Apple Phone then? ;)

My name and iPod serial number.

I've owned a few iPods. However, none have been engraved.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:32 PM
I just ordered my first iPod and i didn't engrave anything because maybe if sometime down the road i wanna resell it, it makes it....actually worth something

Jan 8, 2007, 10:41 PM
Last year, I purchased a 5th generation iPod for my wife, and I engraved upon it these characters: S2.

Jan 8, 2007, 10:52 PM
I got an iPod shuffle for Christmas and it was engraved, "You are good stuff!" :cool:

Jan 8, 2007, 10:53 PM
First gen Nano,

Occasio facit furem
- Last Name

"Opportunity Makes A Thief"

Over Achiever
Jan 8, 2007, 11:02 PM
I just have my name on it.

Jan 8, 2007, 11:09 PM
"OLDSKOOL" - on my Video
Nothing on my Shuffle as it was gotten for free and couldnt request anything on it .

..... thats how I roll ...


Jan 8, 2007, 11:11 PM
"Koelsch trinker, kein Scheiss' Mann!"

Jan 8, 2007, 11:37 PM
I had my nano engraved with my initials, but that really killed the resale value of it.

Most people don't want a 1st gen nano with "SSB" engraved on the back...

Jan 9, 2007, 03:33 AM
my 5G video was a gift. it was engraved:

"for francis use only
not for resale"

francis is my name, obviously.

Nothing engraved in my iPod, but I brushed mine to give it a little personality. Has the added benefit of covering up the scratches in the brushed area.

Whats engraved on my iPod? Dirt, scratches ;)

Jan 9, 2007, 04:23 AM
Mine has HP engraved on it. :p

I liked the 10 % discount more than engraving.

In my Shuffle. 'Microsoft Rocks'.

Honestly, my name.

Jan 9, 2007, 07:10 AM
I plan on getting one at the end of this month.
I was thinking about getting it engraved "V for Vista!" :cool:

...or "Remember your roots; Macrumors.com":p

Jan 9, 2007, 08:11 AM
I had my second gen Shuffle engraved with "This one's mine. Get your own."

Here (http://www.methodshop.com/mp3/articles/rejectedengraving/) are some really funny ones.

My favourites are:

''George Bush hates black iPods''

''To all the Chinese children who made my iPod, Thanks!''

''Bite My Shiny Metal Ass''

''Controls on the other side, retard!''

''Trapped in iPod factory. Please send help''

Nothing but if I did it would be my postcode.

Jan 25, 2007, 11:00 PM
Why your postcode?

Jan 26, 2007, 12:43 AM
my name first line and cell second line. the cell phone number is written like this so it looks cool in my opinion: 123.456.7890 :D

Jan 26, 2007, 01:38 AM
I have a Nano(2ndGen) that I got as a gift so it's not engraved but I am getting a 2nd Gen iPod Shuffle that I am engraving, "Hands off my shuffle!" :p

Jan 26, 2007, 03:11 AM
Why your postcode?

House number + postcode is unique and thus enables somebody with an honest bent to return it.

Jan 26, 2007, 12:22 PM
My Nano has "Eric" engraved on it and my name is Will.:confused:

But I bought it from a guy named Eric......:p ;)

Jan 26, 2007, 01:20 PM
"its all good" on my 1rst gen 4 gig nano

Jan 26, 2007, 01:21 PM
"its all good" on my 1rst gen 4 gig nano

Jan 26, 2007, 01:32 PM
For my wife's 2g nano (green), I wrote:

Happy First Anniversary
Here's to many more

She loved it

Jan 26, 2007, 01:55 PM
My name and iPod serial number.

And let me guess - you have a tattoo with your iPhone number and iPod serial number? :p

On mine, just the simple name, and email address. Probably not the best idea in terms of trying to resell it, but...

Jan 26, 2007, 02:12 PM
mine's got an apple logo, the letters i, P, o and d, a box with 80gb written in it and some "fine print" :D

Jan 26, 2007, 03:40 PM
mine has my name and it also has scratches on it. and one of these:apple:
