Where's the best place for case window etching in the states?

I'm interested in sending off my case window to have it etched with a few logo's on it. Namely OC3D & Intel. Anyone in the states had this done? If so where did you have it done, how much did it cost, and was the service rendered good enough to where you would give them repeat business?

Thanks in advance!

I haven't had it done but you could buy something that etches stuff inot metal and do it that way. You could use a tracer to get the shape right.

Didn't you have a mate with a lazer cutter? Did the DFI brackets with it.

Dremel frankly is my favorite way. Lay down some blue painters tape in the pattern, then dremel it all away.

Yeah that's a huge factory up in Michigan, and it's a laser cutter, not a laser engraver

And I would want this professionally laser engraved anyhow, I need it to be gradiated and perfect. Dremel is ghettotastic tbh.

laser cutters can have their speed increased and intensity lowered do it does nothing more than take the surface off
