Laser etch your Kindle

Why should iPods have all the fun?  Now you can etch your Kindle in several ways.

  • Buy a laser etcher and DIY.  Note that laser etching produces noxious gases - good ventilation is a must.
  • Snag your company laser etcher over lunch.  The good people at adafruit did.
  • Send your Kindle to a laser engraving company.
  • Buy a stencil etcher kit - works on stainless steel.

Have an etched Kindle already? Send/post a link!


  1. I much prefer the idea of a solid, single color skin where authors can Sharpie autograph. Nothing permanent to the Kindle and refillable so to speak. When full, a xerox and a .jpg give you an awesome screensaver

  2. At we specialize in custom engraving all kinds of portable electronics including Kindle, NOOK and other e-reader devices, iPads, iPods and even leather covers. Engraving starts at $39 and we offer a 1 to 2 day turnaround on most orders. Our website has an "online designer" tool, that allows customers to add text, or upload any image or design they would like to have engraved. Take a look at the site, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
