Default Illuminated power switches/buttons

I was wondering if anyone knew of a particularly good source for professional looking power buttons or switches, preferably illuminated. I've shopped around at Parts Express, Digikey, etc., but most of what I've seen isn't very good, or it didn't handle AC, and they weren't illuminated.

I had no luck in this regard myself.

However, I offer one caution:
Be clear whether you mean
A- the switch glows even when off so you can find it in the dark, or
B- the light only comes on when the switch is "on".

The phase "illuminated switch" often refers to option A. This has industrial uses and is not uncommon but is not what I was looking for, so I'm guessing you are not looking for it either.

If you really DO want type A, www.digikey.com has them.

Good looking switches are hard to find at a decent price. Most of the time I use non-illuminated switches with a seperate LED on its own pole of the switch.

Default Lighted switches

Look on my website www.apexjr.com
under the movie props. I sell lamp sockets and lighted
push button switches to the movies for props and blinking
background lights...Good selection and prices.
