    How do!

    Little background to the poll i'm putting together here.

    I recently sold my beloved m15x and purchased the new AW 13, to my suprise, Dell/AW do not supply the custom nameplate any more.
    This was extremely disappointing as i loved the nameplate on the old machines.


    Anyway, enough of that.

    I have recently acquired the use of a professional laser marking machine, so have been working on a little project to get a shiny new custom nameplate made for my shiny new machine.

    See original post: #2960

    *OFFICIAL* Alienware 13 R3 Owner's Lounge

    After finding the right material & font etc.

    I think the results of MK1 have been pretty good.
    ( I have marked the alienhead logo as a background, quite difficult to capture on the image, but looks great in person)

    [​IMG]

    Dimensions: 75mm x 25mm - 0.5mm aluminum with Adhesive backing (Strong adhesive but come off with no marks to laptop - just take care to protect plate if reusing/relocating)

    [​IMG]

    For scale: AW 13 R3.

    So the question is this:

    Do you want a custom nameplate for your machine?

    I will need enough members to make this viable (25 to start but more the merrier), not only for time but for machine & material cost.

    All UK members will be £12.
    Which will include the custom nameplate, postage fee & packaging materials.

    Feel free to ask any questions about the process or any queries you might have.

    thanks for taking the time to read this and hope you like the nameplate, i sure do! ;)

    Cheers

    Edit

    So, having already reached the required minimum members needed to get this small project off the ground, and with a lot of requests for shipping information & pricing.....

    I thought it would be best to add in the below pricing:

    Custom Plate - £12

    UK Shipping - Free!

    EU Shipping - £3

    Worldwide Shipping - £4

    The plates will be shipped in a card sleeve/ protector. Inside an air pocket padded envelope for additional protection.

    (If for some reason your countries shipping comes to more than I have quoted above, I will pay the difference)

    If PM'ing (starting a conversation) for a Custom Plate.

    Please give the following information:

    Line 1: Machine Make & Model
    Line 2: Preferred Name (Forum, Personal or anything you bloody well want!)
    Line 3: Either Machine Spec or Service Tag / Express Code

    All will have the Alienhead background unless requested to remove.

    Thanks again for the support!
    Can't wait to get going with these for everyone! :)

    Cheers

    Thank you very much.
    And yes, I really can't imagine shipping being all that much for the size of the padded package.
