Is there a better way to to create a feature that will be laser etched? And have it show on the face it is suppposed to be on?

In the past I have used an extruded-cut, each with it's own set of problems.
1. either entirely thru the material thickness
-can be etched on the incorrect surface

2. only 'embossed' into the material
-if the 'fixed face' is not facing up the feature does not show.

Or just live w/ it and make sure that each programmer is fully aware of each requirement.
