Front panel silk screen / laser etch

Postby chris p » Fri Aug 05, 2005 2:48 pm

I'm looking for a place in Sydney that can do one-off custom print/etch of 19" rack panels (mostly 1U) from full size PDF artwork (or any hints on how to do it DIY) - I think I can remember what all my home built bits and bobs do, but I'd like the rack to look nice and professional, even the home built bits.

Any thoughts, anyone?

Lots of Watts offer this service, although I'm not sure what input formats they accept.

You could get it nicely hand engraved at key king or somewhere similar if it's just labelling. Doubt it would be accurate enough for numbering though.

Look in your local Yellow Pages for a engraver/trophy shop that advertises laser engraving/etching.

I used a shop here, supplied the panel & graphic (in .EPS fromat AFAIR) and a few days later the panel came back very nicely engraved.
