    I just had some come back in about two weeks. Depends on their volume, but 2-3 weeks is the standard.

    We had about 30 plates engraved locally and they were pretty quick. I think out cost for all the plates was around 150.00 Plates were 1,2,3 a few 4's and a 5 gang.

    Let's clarify a bit-

    MIKEY- did you want to engrave the keypad faceplates, or the actual wall plates around the devices?

    Glackowitz- same question, keypad engraving or wall plates? Keypad engraving is free (first time) with the engraving certificates included with all keypads. I have engraved Lutron wall plates both from Lutron and other sources. I can say, the satin color engraving should be done with a laser engraver. Trying a paint wash will result in a very ugly plate.

    Sorry, we had the faceplates done, local company we found did them with laser. Keypads we do thru Lutron.
