    Laser etching

    Can anyone suggest a company to use for a spot of laser etching? Ive googled tomy hearts content, was hoping there'd be a company on ebay offering their services but no such luck.

    Im after clear acrylic pieces, and im wanting a few custom designs laser etched into them. ive found a company in milton keynes and also auto accoustics but other than that I don't seem to be having much luck, im getting quoted of over £100 for simple pieces...

    Anyone shed any light? location doesnt matter as i can sort it all over the net and get the pieces posted.

    thanks

    Try your local sign makers, a lot of them have engraving facilities.

    Ahh it seems they have done acryclic laser etching before!

    EDIT - email back and they do engraving not etching.

    Next stop the local trophy shop.
