Default laser engraving

I posted this under pen turning, let me ask here as well:

Is there anyone in the D.C. area that could laser engrave some initials on a pen for me before Christmas? I've got a last minute order and they'd like to have it engraved. I'll turn the pen tonight and was thinking maybe I still have time to have it engarved over the next few days...
I live west of D.C. in Chantilly basically.

If this is still an issue, there's a guy named Nate at the Woodcraft in Springfield, VA who does laser engraving. His prices are reasonable, as well...
