Hello all! I've been up and down Google searching for the right approach to my project. I've looked at engraving places, vinyl printing, acid etching, 3D printing and a bunch of other solutions. For the most part they cost a ton which isn't the best option since my hobby is purely for fun. I build guitar amps out of all sorts of things like ammo cans and random stuff I find in antique stores and while they come out sounding good, they tend to look bad because I have to hand paint the controls onto the unit and I am not particularly good a that. So it occurred to me that I could design the plate that goes under the knobs much like something you would seen on a Marshal head in a nice brass or other metal depending on the amp body. Problem is, I have no idea how to get to that finished look. So I'm wondering if anyone has some suggestions about applying a design such as control markings and labels to a metal plate. I've attached a simple layout as a conversation point to see if I can get some help. The green are my drill holes which I have learned how to do at home. Thanks!
