Default equipment labeling


Years ago there was a company or two that made some dry transfer/rub on
labeling. They you could get some with electrical names such as volume
control, antenna and such. Now all that seems to be around is just
single letters.

Does anyone know if you can still get the full labels or a good way to
label a painted cabinet ?

Letraset. But this business of course has diminished and such special
purpose labels, for which there once was a market, are of course the
first to go.

Today you would make a design on a computer and then use photographic
techniques to transfer it to a front panel. Services that do small
quantities at reasonable price are available.

Another of today's options is to print a full size colour sheet and
then seal it in a plastic envelope, with suitable holes for the controls.

Print the whole front panel on an 'OHP' sheet, ideally on a Laser
printer, cut holes for controls etc., and fit over whole front panel.
Provided the panel is A4 then you should be OK. You can even include
colour etc. I've (generally) found that the material stays in place,
held by just the control mounting nuts or other existing screws etc.
