Boxzy will only mark on Anodized aluminum. And then only darker colors of anodizing where the metal is not polished or highly reflective under the anodizing.

We have seen videos of people coating the metal with things such as black nail polish or grey pupon mustard and then laser an image. Is that recommended or helpful or a no no? We are still learning this. Thank you


A light coating of flat black spray paint works well for some materials that will not etch otherwise.
