Dremel + template to engrave label on aluminum frame?


I got my commuter bike engraved with a security number so that authorities can check against a database in case it's stolen and retrieved, but the association that handles this only engraves a number which can pass for the manufacturer's serial number.

To make sure unsuspecting buyers don't end up buying a stolen bike, I'd like to engrave the URL to that site, and someone recommended I just get a Dremel drill and a template:


If someone's used that tool to engrave labels on an aluminum frame, can it be done even without any experience, and does it look good enough so that the bike won't lose resell value?

Thank you.
