    That looks cool, I think I would try it on a replacement back panel to confirm settings etc first... you know, so you don't accidentally burn through the phone.

    Pretty neat. I would be scared to do it, though.

    It looks like it came like that from the factory. Very nice.

    I find it ridiculous that this gets so much good initial feedback while the option to reanodize your phone through Anostyle is met with so much disgust. That being said this is cool! Just needs cleaner cuts around the iPhone name and the little blurbs on the back.

    Looks pretty cool to me but cleaner cuts around the wording/logo would be better. Good luck reselling one with like a family picture engraved lol.

    Interesting really . So I think this is the way that Apple does the engraving to the Ipod Touch and Ipad.

    I agree that look awesome.

    I dont think id leave the writing visible as the boxes around it look not so good.

    also agree with the cons of reselling value, very permanent or can you engrave over it again, and what would apples take on warranty be ?

    Still tho , awesome.

    I almost bought that laser etching machine. But it was over $10k and I was short on cash.

    They did send me a nice catalog and some samples.

    That looks pretty great. Resale shouldn't be as hard as it would be if it were truly personal. It's a scenic photo that many can enjoy.

    Process: OK

    Artistic Design: D.

    I mean I've seen on this site, stickers that make the logo as part of the picture, here the guy just left holes.
