    I'm not going to reveal much, just that I would like inputs on a design idea for laser etching on a acrylic sheet.

    Dimensions are roughly: 19" x 7"

    I want something nice/elegant/cool but not cheap/tacky.

    This is the best I could think of so far:

    Or just get a pattern etched, like a CF weave or something. It would look really really nice.

    Is the Acrylic going to be backlit or something? Will it be covering something to be flaunted?

    That would be somewhere but not on this design


    Acrylic is not going to be backlit, however it will be used for flaunting something rather unique, atleast as far as what people get to see here in India.


    Nah, been there, done that and done quite enough. Let's move on.

    So noone likey the Dark Knight cracked logo? MOAR ideas.

    BTW exams over!!!

    Anyways, It is going to be a keyboard roof for a special keyboard, might take some time to get it, as I am getting it from the US. Mechanical and need to protect those switches from damn dust! It eat away my Razer BWU switches!

    Paharganj near Ramakrishna Ashram Marg metro station. They have a decent plastics/vinyl market there. You can buy the acrylic, get it etched, worked on, etc there itself. Sold by weight and size.

    BTW need pics of your setup, the design should fit in with the surroundings.

    My keyboard isn't ready yet, will be in 2 months :( (Getting from US + international shipping)

    Basically it is a Goliathus extended infront of a 23" monitor with the keyboard and mouse ontop of it.

    Do you plan to cover both the KB and the mouse with the roof? Or just the KB?

    MOZ It is not about the game, but neat minimalistic design of the logo itself.
    I mean dark knight is cool as hell, but way too common. I would generally go for something either very simple or very uncommon.
    Though everything I own should have a Motorhead logo on it.
