Custom faceplates for pedals??

Mon Dec 03, 2018 6:47 am

Long story short I misprinted some labels a small run of pedals I'm working on. Drill holes are perfect but a few labels are too high. Curious if you guys have any good leads on custom plastic faceplates? Small sheet aluminum with a print would work as well but not looking to spend more than 10-15 dollars per plate, not sure if that is reasonable or way too high. My other option is getting them re-powdercoated and engraved/CNC machined at a local shop. I'm almost leaning towards option 2 as I think that would be classy AF but open to any ideas.

Maybe contact a sign-maker or trophy shop in your area if there is one? I think they can usually engrave a variety of materials in house though may or may not be up to the task of drilling the rest of the holes.

make a pcb nameplate. do your holes where you need them, have the names in copper exposed threw the mask. faceplates for $2-10 Buncha modular people do it
