Front panel labeling.

Hi DIY'ers

I'm sure this topic has been spoken about here before (but I can't find in a search)

I'm looking to label a bunch of 500 series front panels.

What are the current recommendations for the easiest and most economical way off going about this?

Many thanks

Hey ben,

If the panels are made of anodized aluminum you have have a trophy store or similar lazer mark them. It just takes off the anodization and shows the metal below.

Alternatively you can get most trophy shops to make you up a plate kind of thing that goes over the panel (maybe held on by the mounting hardware of the pots/switches. That looks like this:

Thanks Nick.
I thought of trophy shops but was feeling it might get expensive for the amount I was looking to do.
I'll drop by the place I found in a search and see what's up.
Love yer work man.
Cheers
