Anyone here ever get samples from maxim? Recently they now send them in cool little boxes that says maxim and attention electrostatic sensitive devices. I want to get rid of the maxim logo and just keep the static warning so that I can have a cool clear project box that tells people that if they open it that they should be careful because of the static electricity. The text feels slightly raised to the touch. I do NOT want to scratch up the box. BTW, small question, anyone ever have trouble adding notes to pictures? Whenever I create an instructable I have to add it in preview mode, but once in a while I can do it in edit mode. For example I had to post this topic and edit it to add notes to the picture.

I used mine for project boxes (blue paint works for hiding the words, etc ;-) . Just don't use paint with too much "thinner" in it, or you might end up with a really convoluted box LOL

I'm holding one of the boxes right now, it is a raised printing. I would have some great ideas if it weren't for the raised lip surrounding to box-top... i think your best bet is a really fine sandpaper or a "Mr Clean Magic Eraser" and LOTS of plastic polish. You may need to remove the entire label and reprint the warning to get the polished plastic to look the same as the original surface, sorry.

. It looks like it's printed and "feels slightly raised to the touch" confirms it for me. . You should be able to find some plastic polish (the stuff for plastic eyeglass lenses should work). Use very fine sandpaper (or steel wool) to remove the letters and then polish. You make be able to scrape the letters off with an Exacto knife type instrument and have less to polish. . You may be able to find a solvent that will dissolve the ink without affecting the plastic. . That's all I can think of.
