Apple offers iPod shuffle custom engraving

imageThe online Apple Store has begun offering free personalized engraving on the iPod shuffle. Unlike the full-size iPod and iPod nano, the laser-engraved text is printed on the side of the shuffle and has a one line, 40 character limit. “Engraving is simple,” explains Apple. “First, choose the iPod, iPod nano or iPod shuffle you want. When you put iPod into your Apple Store shopping cart, you’ll be asked whether you want a personalized engraving. Just enter your text and see what it looks like. Since it’s free, why not do it?”

This is interesting to me because I’m from Singapore and our online Apple store has been offering free engraving for since forever. I got it for my 4g iPod last year, and I got it again more than a year later for my nano.

the engraving is new for the ipod shuffle, but not for the ipods with a chrome backing

well a reason not to do it is you lose alot of your warranty with engraved ipods. i ordered a photo engraved, and the warranty is changed so if you open the box you cant return it.

you still get 1 year warranty with engraved ipods.
nothing will change.
warranty policy is different with return policy.

I work for a company that sells laser engraving system (this is not a plug), but I bought an ipod shuffle for my mom back around mothers day, and the engraving I did for her rocks. She loves it.
