Modbook R&D Labs – The Inside Track, Issue No.14

MB_RnDLabs_TheInsideTrack-No14-0225sIMGHello my fellow T?pferlgucker (?).

Backers of the Modbook Pro X will be able to have their machine customized before shipment. Let’s get into these options in a little more detail.

One of these custom options is custom laser engraving on the back of the device!

Shown below is the back cover of the Pro X with the standard logo and the base product markings.


(top, on the left: Origin Notice; left, top half: Port Markings; left, bottom half: Keybar Markings; bottom, on the left: Button Markings; bottom center, lower half: Conformity Notice; bottom, on the right: Frontmount Release Markings; right, bottom half: Keybar Markings; right, top half: Port Markings)

Backers who have custom engraving as part of their Pro X reward can elect to have a laser-engraved image of their choice on the back of the device in place of the Pro X logo.

We’ve set up a web page where you can get additional information on the custom engraving option: You can download PDFs and even an Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or SVG file that you can use to design and integrate your custom image into the Pro X design.

The page even includes a few sample designs to get your creative gears turning, like this example:


There are a number of guidelines to follow for your custom image (for example, it must be a vector graphic that fits into a specific area on the back cover), so it’s a good idea to check out for more info.

We’ll be in touch with backers whose reward includes custom engraving at a later date, at which point we’ll give you instructions on sending us your image, so there’s no need to send us anything now.

Another custom option — custom colors! — will be the subject of an upcoming Inside Track blog post.

To everyone in the U.S., have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday. To everybody else: go try a turkey dinner, it really is delicious.

Until next time,
Andreas & the Team
