Self-Inking Stamps have offered Huapai District School a service to parents who are buying the new Chromebook computers for their children to permanently mark them with laser engraving.
The price is $20.00 for one side and $30.00 for two sides.
This one is for the Samsung Chromebook we have developed a template for.
This involves the use of a laser engraver to neatly, accurately and permanently engrave the Chromebook. The darker grey centre area of the drawing is where we can engrave. We cannot do the edges outside this zone.
We have just experimented with one for our very junior staff member using the Samsung Chrome book both on the lid and the underside of the Chromebook.
The laser cuts away the surface leaving the plastic below exposed, there is no colouring in the process. The Samsung Chromebook has a very pale yellowish colour below the Silver surface paint and that is the colour the lettering will be.
There are a couple of poorly lit photos to check out what this looks like above.
Your child’s name can be engraved in your choice of fonts. Please chose one from any Document type programme. Thin letters will not be as noticeable as the thicker ones. Arial and Calibri are common ones that work very well but you can get funky too! Tell us if you would like bold or in a particular font point size.
We will keep the file on record so you can cross out the previous years room and put a new one on with the font you used the first time. Or you could put your telephone number on the back too.
Choose a font and figure how big you want the engraving and where on the Chrome Book to put it. Tell us the length and this will scale the height with it.
You can also put an image on the Chromebook too. It must be a line drawing type in one colour to enable engraving the image, preferably black. This does cost more as there is a longer set up time and engraving time required. We can supply a price for that separately.
We will supply a proof of the engraving to scale before you pay or commit to doing it.
Once accepted best way is drop off in the morning and pick up at the end of the day or even drop off at the end of the day and pick up in the morning. Just depending on our work load we may be able to do it in ten minutes for you if you avoid the 11:00-3:30 pm time zone.
We will be donating some of the proceeds back to the school for much needed fund raising. The more we can process the better it is for the school. This price is a seriously discounted amount.
What is popular so far for engraving placement?
Centre of the lid where it opens so you read it when lifting the lid.
Also on the left side.
