The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Office of Technology offers free engraving of computer equipment and handhelds to all students, faculty, and staff.
We recommend engraving your property as a means of making it traceable in the event of theft or confusion over ownership.
Consider carefully what information you wish to engrave. Avoid identity theft--do not use your social security number, address, or full name. We recommend using the University of Maryland School of Law tax ID number or other identifiers that will identify the item without identifying you.
Check with the manufacturer regarding appropriate marking locations and warranty criteria prior to marking.
