If it is plastic, use a heated knife/nail/needle to melt the plastic with it. Heat it with a lighter, then Use the knife/nail/needle like a pen. Be very careful, and practice first.

Use with caution and in a well ventilated room under adult supervision. And knowing is half the battle! YO JOE!

Hey McLovin, I found an interesting piece of equipment that you might look for.  It's a hot knife, an exacto blade on the end of a soldering iron.

A small rotary drill/grinder (dremel) type thing would work.

On mine it's got attachments definitely small enough to carve lettering with, and it was only £15, about $20-30 I think. It's light enough to not give me a problem with delicate work, so should be ideal, no smell either, though you might want to wear some goggles/sunglasses.

Cheers
