You’ve just received the best Christmas present ever – a brand new iPad! It’s the perfect time to show your love for that special someone and preserve this moment forever. That’s where an engraved iPad comes in handy. It’s something that can be cherished for years to come as it has personal meaning, without being overly sentimental. It’s also quite a unique gift – something that not many people would think of giving someone they love so much, especially if they don’t have any other memorabilia or collectibles of them at home. The process is super simple but requires a bit of organization beforehand: you will need to find out what font you want to use; what message you want to write; and how big you want it to be. Once you know these things, all there’s left is choosing which tag font you like most and then getting started by reading on for more details.
What Should I Engrave On My iPad?
1. Choose Your Message
The size of the text you want to be inscribed on your iPad is up to you. This can be as big or small as you like, depending on how much room you have left.
“I Love You” is a good place to start, but I wouldn’t stop there. If you want something more personal, try “Best Friend”, “Always”, “I Miss You”, or even just “I Love You”.
You can also get creative and use a phrase from your life. The possibilities are endless!
2. Choose Your Font Choice
If you haven’t done so already, find out what typeface (font) you want to use for your message. There are plenty of options available online and it’s worth checking out all the different ones so that you can pick the one that suits your personality best. There are loads of free ones as well as paid (and free) options out there – there’s no need to spend money if this is just something for fun! Just make sure whatever font you choose makes sense in terms of what it means and how it looks. It’s totally fine if it isn’t perfect – after all, this will only be a temporary thing!
3. Get Started…Now!
All that’s left now is to sit back and relax while the engraving process takes place on your iPad in real-time: no need to wait for a delivery date or even an email saying when it will be ready for you to pick up!
4. Check Your Work
Once the process is complete, you can check your work by sending an email to your chosen recipient. They will receive an email with a link and a few pictures, showing what it looks like on their iPad. It’s up to them whether or not they like it and whether or not they want it – but at least you’ll know that they saw it!
How To Find Out Which Font You Want To Use?
1. Get A Free Font
If you don’t already have a font that you like, there are loads of free ones available online. You can find them by searching for “free fonts” on Google or even by browsing the web for “free hand-lettered fonts”.
2. Download A Pro-Quality Font
If you already have a font that you like, it’s worth checking out what typeface is available in the pro version. Chances are it will be much more expensive than if you download a free version, but if this is something you really want to do, then it might be worth paying the money! It’s definitely worth doing if your message is going to be something very important and/or special – just make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before doing so!
3. Design Your Message
Once you have chosen a font that you really like, it’s time to design your message. You’ll need to think about what it means, how it looks, and how you want the recipient to feel when they read it! It’s important that this is something you really enjoy doing and isn’t just something for fun – after all, it will be with them for a long time!
4. Engraving Options
There are lots of different engraving options available – but the one you choose will depend on what kind of message you’re sending. For example, if you’re sending a birthday card or other type of greeting card, then an envelope is probably best. If however there is something very important in the message itself (like a private message) then an iPad case may be better suited: both can be engraved with your chosen font and look absolutely amazing!
5. Get Engraved With Your Font Choice
Once you’ve got your message designed, it’s time to get it engraved. You can either order a standard envelope or case and let the engraver do their thing, or you can design something yourself – but this can be tricky! There are some engraving templates online which might help you – but if not then Google is your friend!
6. Pick Out Your Engraving
Once you’ve got the materials that you need, it’s time to pick out your font and start engraving. You’ll probably have to wait for the engraver to finish their work on another order before they can come back and work on yours, so don’t be too impatient!
7. Take Your iPad To The Post Office
If everything works out okay (and hopefully it will!), then take your iPad with the custom case/envelope with you when you’re going to send it off. Make sure that when they scan it that they use the “label” setting rather than “envelope”, as this will ensure that it gets sent back to you in one piece – instead of being crushed!
8. Wait For Your Engraved Case/Envelope To Arrive
Hopefully, by now, your case/envelope should have arrived at your home address safely and in one piece! When this happens, sit down and open up your gift from someone special: a beautiful new iPad cover engraved with an amazing hand-written message from them (or you)!
9. Check Your Engraved Case/Envelope Is Working!
As soon as you open the envelope and take out your new case/envelope, you should be able to see that it has been engraved with a message (and hopefully it’s something that you really like!). If this is the case, then all you have to do is pop your iPad into the case/envelope, and away it goes!
10. Enjoy Your New Engraved Case/Envelope!
If everything has gone well, then you should now have a wonderful new engraved iPad case or envelope. It will look great on your iPad and will make for a very special gift for certain occasions.
Where On The iPad Should I Engrave?
1. The Back
If you’re buying an iPad for someone, then you might have to choose between engraving a case or a cover. The reason for this is that it’s not so easy to engrave a case. You can engrave the back of your iPad, but the top of the case will be covered by the plastic backing and won’t be visible. If you want to do this, then choose something that’s not too large (for example, something simple like “Happy Birthday” should be fine).
2. The Front
When it comes to engraving a case or cover, then there are two options: front or back. If you’re going to engrave a front cover/case, then make sure that you can see it well when looking at your iPad from above (you don’t want them having to turn their iPad over just so they can read the message!).
3. On The Screen
You can also engrave it on the screen! For example, if you’ve got a message that says “I love you”, then this is something that would look great on the screen of your iPad! However, since this would make it difficult for people reading your message to read it (and also because people will touch their iPads as they read), I would suggest sticking with writing on paper and getting either an envelope or case made up for them instead!
4. The Keyboard
If you’ve got a message that you want to engrave on the iPad keyboard, then this is something that will look great if done correctly. To do this, you need to remember that the letters are in different places from the numbers (which are on the top row). To engrave a message on the keyboard, then it’s best to get someone who knows how to do it to engrave it for you.
5. The Front Camera
The front camera is located in the bottom left-hand corner of your iPad (next to the mute button). If you’re going to engrave something on this camera, then make sure that your message is not too long! You can see why by looking at these two pictures:
