That would be awesome since I was just experimenting with their Front Panel Designer software. I must be missing the announcement of this discount on their website, however. Could you point me to the specific page..?

Agreed, quality is above and beyond excellent, I'll post some pics in the near future.

However the pricing information from an order I placed on (30 march) is still basically the same as today, in the Order Program after clicking on the "update prices" button.

So either I got the reduced price on the original order or it's not visible in the Cad package.

Edit, I'd also like to know if this is on top of the normal Volume pricing or in place of?

you seem to mix up 2 completely different companies!

The "Frontpanel Express" is the well known German "Schäffer Apparatebau"

the "Frontpanel Experts" is a different story!

cheers Uli

I have been using them with good success. One front pannel is 3"x22" and it was fabricated and shipped to me for under $55. 3 mm alu. engraved lettering, CNC quality. Very nice. They are here in Seattle.
