Default Engraving a top sheet?

Has anyone ever done this DIY style or had it done by a professional engraver?

My 2010/2011 board did not come with a serial number. Since I am usually at resorts where theft is (unfortunately) common, I would like to have some form of ID on it. I lock it up whenever it's not in my direct sight, but going with the thought of "better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it" I'd like to have some way to recover it if needed.

I was thinking of putting it somewhere under the binding if possible. I contacted a local engraver but I would have to bring it in for an estimate to see if they could even do it. My hesitation is that it doesn't sound like they've engraved a snowboard before, so is there anything I should be aware of or look for in their services before having them do it?

The other issues I foresee at this point are that it's a bio-polymer (beans) top sheet AND textured.

I have a Dremel and a steady hand but don't want to eff it up if I do it myself.

Any thoughts, experience, or advice? Thanks!
