Decals aren’t the only way to decorate your Macbook. If you find an engraver with experience and expertise in the area, you can also have images engraved or laser etched onto the cover. Of course, this is something you definitely don’t want to try at home unless you’re looking for a way to destroy your screen and void your warranty.
