    Would masking tape help? How about:
    1. Paint the board pink and allow to dry
    2. Cover the pink paint with masking tape
    3. Engrave (through the maskingtape)
    4. Paint the black letters with a brush or spray paint. (surface is protected by cut through tape)
    5. Remove masking tape

    Don't know, have not tried this, but it seems like it might just work.

    Not so sure that would work Jay, masking tape doesn't always cut that cleanly so you could end up with lots of jagged edges plus it is likely to lift a little leading to dust under the edges. Not tried it either but can see those 2 things being a problem, stencil mask would probably work better as it tends to cut much better but that would be quite a bit more expensive.
