Default Current ideas on panel labelling?

Hi all

Coming back to building stuff after many years, and I'm looking for ideas on how best to label front panels these days. In my day, we used Letraset, but I hope things have moved on a little since then. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Default Maybe silk screening..

Have you considered silk screening?

I'm not sure if you want a quick or more permanent solution, but if you can build electronics you can silk screen. There are cheap kits available online and you can have professional looking results.

Engraving is an option I have used (0.5-0.75 Can$/letter) in the past. The next time though I will try laser-cut lettering. From what I understand, many MS/Apple programmes can output files acceptable to the cutter. E
