Zippo Lighter Shells

One more question for tonight! Is a Zippo lighter shell safe to engrave? Thank you!

Plane brass or chrome will need a treatment for it to mark and you will have to experiment with painted.

Thanks for your reply! Can you recommend a treatment for a plain old silver looking shell? I’m not sure what the material is 100%. It’s an heirloom tho, so I’d hate to wreck it.


Awesome info! Thanks so much!!

Your 40W co2 laser can’t touch the actual metal, so worst case you have some cleaning to do.,
