Default Lable chassis

Anyone know a way to put nice looking lables on a DIY chassis/encloser?

Like Volume, Balance, Bass, Treble, and so forth.

Thanks

Maybe this will help, or give some pointers, Front Panel Express

Downloading their software now. But, I was really looking for a way "I" could do it.

Hence "the big DIY question."

I sort of knew what you were getting at. I just hoped this would clear some of it out. I guess some sort of screen print is required. I have a similar problem coming up where I need some really fancy print. It's some vintage gear being modified.

Yeah, new stuff for me too. Actually, with the software from your link, I designed a very nice panel that I could glue to the actual front panel.

Price $30. But would really make a nice looking unit.

I'm still going to look into some type of styncilling. sp?

Dave,

Here is just one example of "dry transfer lettering". There are zillions of different kinds/styles out there. It DOES take some practice and patience to do it.

It is also rather fragile. What I usually do is put a few coats of polyurethane over it... this helps alot for durability.

Recently I've taken to printing front panels out on thin card (using a colour ink jet printer), then laminating the card. Cut the design out and glue it to the front panel. Nice and colourful, and the laminating makes it shiny and proof against damage.
