    Hey guys, in a few hours I'm going to this engraving place by my house and there going to engrave the back of my iphone. Googling "laser engraved iPhone" puleld up some cool results and after colorware stopped customizing the 2G iphones I thought engraving it would be cool. For the design I'm using the "Rogue Status Gun Show" print across the back and maybe have it say ROGUE on the black part or just continue the guns. Any ideas? The only bummer is that they engrave it silver. So it wont be tooooooo noticeable but plently if your up close. Any ideas, tips, etc post em as I'm a little scared to get my iPhone permanetely marked even though it's one of my favorite designs. I'll post pics tonight when I get home.

    By the way for people curious, it's normally around $20-$40 so it's really not that bad for a permanent marking to really pimp your iphone. They do 3G'salso.

    EDIT: Ok So this is what they did so far. I have to go back in a day or two for them to finish but they did the antenna for me. Looks really nice. The pictures make it look offset or w.e but it actually looks perfect.

    Of course. I'm really excited, I just hope it turns out good since it's permanent lol

    EDIT: if you want a good site, I came across this the day before I found a place by my house. I wouldve used the website since they can do black but I didnt want to ship my iPhone, althought they say they send it back out the same day since it takes about an hour: http://www.tech-tattoo.com/iphone2g.html They have some good designs

    This would be pointless for most - I use a solid black case. lol

    Hope it turns out good.

    Sorry for the pictures lookign pixelated. The words actually look perfect in person even though they look nasty and offset in the picture. Ill try and take better pictures when they finish the back.
