Exclamation Laser engraving advice

So I bought a Proto that my dad won't let me resell. And I though I might as well make it good. So I got some upgraded parts and now I need it to look cool. I have some questions.

1) If a gun is laser engraved, can it be annodized and not mess up the engraving?
2) will it look good on a silver gun?



And last. I need help! I wanted to do a logo or symbol on my gun inside of a diamond shape.
My name is Kyle And my last name starts with an "S". I was thinking maybe a cool s?
But here is what I was referring to:

laser engraving after annodize.

That is a matter of opinion but the laser kinda makes a white mark so it would be a silver gun with a white logo so it will not "pop" if thats what your looking for.


Cant help you on that last part

I found a pic of a silver lazered gun. Doesn't look too bad. I'm just looking for some personalization. Thanks for the help!
Note: I am doing it local so I could have a 1 on 1 talk to make sure it's what I like and what it would look like.

To be honest, it's going to be $200+ to anno/laser. It's not worth all the upgrades on such a low end marker. Out the money to paint and upgrading a marker

Well I can get a blue anodizing for $50, and laser engraving for $30-150. Dye told me if I laser engrave it, it won't void the warrenty, I talked to a lady from dye, and she said anno won't void it. I just wanna get a signed letter. But I figured out what I wanna do!
I'm going to get a blue dust anodizing job. Then, where the red circle is, I want to get the lighting bolt seen on the tampa bay lightning jerseys. And where the red box is, I want "LIGHTNING" in italics.

You understand that when you do this, and customize it to your self, and come around to selling it, you will actually lose resell?

Not interested in resale. Read my original post. I have 2 people lined up to buy it at $175, but my dad wants me to keep it. I've always wanted a 1 of 1. And I think it would look sick.

I'm guessing your between 10-14. I have been in your shoes. My first marker was an Infinity Legend. I wanted to upgrade it, anno, laser all that. It won't do anything for you! Once your able to resell, you will literally sit on that marker for ever! To each his own, but I would recommend not going there with in. If you had a Geo 3, that would be a separate story

But I don't want to resell it. I would hang it on my wall in 5+ years.

To each his own, but tell me that same statement in 1-2 years when you can B/S/T

I'm not selling it. It's a good memory. I want to keep it for a while and maybe gift it to my father who loves the lightning.
