What better way to stand out from the crowd than personalizing your own Apple Pencil? Engraving an Apple Pencil is perfect for showing your love for a family or friend. Or express your appreciation for a colleague who is changing jobs. Whether you customize it with just your name, cute emoji, a secret message, or a funny quote, engraving an Apple Pencil elevates its sentimental value.
Still on the sidelines about whether you should make your mark on an Apple Pencil? We’ll walk you through the frequently asked questions about Apple Pencil engraving. And just in case you need inspiration, we'll list the most fabulous ideas.
Putting an engraving on an Apple Pencil shows that you put thought into the present. Whether for a former coworker, close friend, partner, or relative, that person will think of you each time they use the Apple Pencil. At the end of the day, that is what gifts are all about.
Why not make your own Apple Pencil memorable for you? There is something meaningful about having your name or favorite quote always at your fingertips. It is also a way to remind ourselves that we are unique.
You can pick out your Apple Pencil from a haystack because of its unique engraving, reducing the risk of mixing up devices at home or the office. Also, the unique inscription is a theft deterrent. No one will steal an Apple Pencil marked with a name, tiny unicorn or an "I LOVE YOU."
You can only engrave up to 15 characters. Apple only engraves text in upper case letters at the moment. However, you aren't limited to engraving only text but can include a tiny logo, symbol, or emoji. If you aren't sure what you can or can't engrave on your Apple Pencil, you can check Apple’s website to see what is available.
Also, engraving your Apple Pencil can make it harder for you to resell it.
Apple engraves your Apple Pencil for free. When you order the Pencil from Apple’s website, opt for "Personalize It For Free," and voila. You’ll receive it within a few days. Apple only engraves products before they are delivered.
Wipe down the pencil with a soft, damp, lint-free cloth from one end to another. However, do not touch the tip to avoid getting moisture inside the seam.
Don’t leave your Apple Pencil’s battery run down to below 10 percent or run out. Charge it regularly to protect the internal battery from failing. Leaving it uncharged for long periods could make the battery and the Apple Pencil useless.
The tip of the Apple Pencil should feel smooth to the touch. If the nib feels rough or doesn’t glide easily on the iPad screen, it’s time to change it. Or, if you need to press the Apple Pencil to use it, the tip is either damaged or worn out. Changing the nib is simple – twist it gently until it comes out. Replace it with a new one. Although it is possible to buy tips that Apple does not manufacture, we always recommend using Apple-approved products. You can easily buy a pack of four replacement tips from their website or any authorized reseller.
