iPO at Macworld - ETCHamac Introduces iPod and Powerbook Etching Service
Wednesday, July 13th, 2005 at 12:05 PM - by
BOSTON -- Roaming the Macworld show floor always reveals a few surprises, and this show is no different. While roaming past the ETCHamac booth, we couldn't help but notice the very cool looking array of iPods and PowerBooks with what we assumed were stick-on labels with various logos. Upon closer inspection, however, we learned that the designs were actually etched onto the respective devices by a CO2 laser.
Not to worry, the laser is low power and will not damage your device. You can either submit your own artwork, or have the folks at ETCHamac work with you to design the perfect image to put on your device. The pricing of the service ranges from $20 to $40 for an iPod, and from $35 to $200 for a PowerBook, depending on the image type and size.
Based on the traffic to the company's booth, ETCHamac's first trip to Macworld, the service will be a hit with iPod users.
