Basically what the title says, I need a few pieces etched, basic logos such as alpine and dc, do you guys know anyone that does that and do you know how much it would cost roughly.
Thanks guys

get a dremel and do it yourself or you can even buy the etching paste. it's really easy to do.

cant you achieve the same look by using painters tape or a vinyl decal and a flat clear or frost spray paint.????

there use to be a guy that specialized in that on the forum a couple of years ago...let me see if I can find the user name...I think he could carve out neat designs with some sort of special laser tool....

check with a local sign shop, i take my pieces to a local sign shop with a vector file of what i want done, $25-$30 - and yes they use the laser tool also, I have also taped it off and use sandblaster in the past, also have seen people tape off and sand it with like 800 grit (did not look even)

Also, if you know someone that has a CNC machine, you can get a similar effect with that. Thats what I use for plexi work.
