Very good! Looks totally pro!


Thanks Matt,

I'm doing the graphics myself, and it's taking me a minute to get that just right. So far the only one that I really like is that one for the Vybe. The other one's are still in process. I printed out a test copy of that one this morning, and it needs a few alignment changes. I've had a lot of positive comments from people on the design of that one. I tried to make it look like a 68 vibrolux I saw.

The guy that's doing the actual production of them owns a professional commercial company that does this stuff, so I'm pretty lucky to know him.

I'm just glad he's willing to do them, because really there isn't much in it for him. He's just doing it because he's a friend. He'll make whatever I want, but... It's probably more of a pita for him than anything.

Interesting timing for this thread
I was wondering about getting anodised plates done and laser etching the patterns and legends on - much like the Mr Scary

I remember seeing a blue Mr Scary on and thinking it looked cool and wanted a Purple Soldano to go with mine.

An anodised blue Bogner fish clone would be fun

I was originally trying to see if I could get some plates made like that. I have a few modules that have some awesome looking plates on them. They have the metal showing through and etc.. I'm not sure if I'm going to get that far into it though felineguitars. My friend does have the ability to do some of that kind of stuff.

The ones that I have shown are good enough quality for my personals desires. I just need to get the art correct, and do a better job of lining everything up.

I basically just have a few modules that I really don't like the way they look. I was looking to get some custom plates made, and I was quoted $41 shipped for a stock (newer version) faceplate. ..and honestly my jaw hit the floor. If it had been a custom plate, and maybe with some of that etching you were talking about before, I might have felt different. ..but a stock plate? meh LoL.

Quote:
"A faceplate for that would run $30. $11 shipping"


That's what started all this. ..and I'm not going to say any more about that Wink

I'm entertaining the possibility of making a few for some other people while I'm doing this, but it's not really a business venture.

Currently I'm just laying the new art over the original plates. My friend can make the metal plates if I want. I can make them too. I'd have to hand cut mine, which I could do, but it would be a hassle. My friend has the machines to do it, but I don't want to bug him too much. Also I'm talking to Drew about some of his blank plates. ...Sooo that's where I'm at on the metal plates.

The ones I posted are put right over top of the old plates though, and honestly I think they are fine that way.

I really could just strip off the old art. So far I've been leaving it underneath (..and it is possible to take off the new and get it back to stock) You can't really see anything wrong or that the old art is under it. The new stuff won't come off unless you try to take it off. My friend says it remains removable for about 3 yrs, then it gets a lot harder to remove. I'm not 100% sure where all that will go.

For now I'm just making the art.

Well if you guys are interested send me some PM's. The more interest, the more likely I'll be to actually do it.

I can't do them for free, but they'll def be less than $41 Wink

Just for fun. Not really putting a lot of effort into these last few.

Haven't decided... amps or no amps?

I don't think they "need" to look like amps.
I'm not a fan of girls with guns on my amp's face plate Very Happy

Yeah I'm just playing around with the girls LoL.

These aren't serious plates, that's why I posted them full size.

I guess they are "sticker style" Marco. They are made like street signs, so they are a little more commercial/professional then your avg sticker though.

If you guys want any you should speak up. The way my mind works... I'm 195% on something, but once I get mine made, I'll be on to other stuff.

Gotcha. Too bad you don't have any dual modules for a template... I've been thinking about going to an engraving place to price out something; I'd like a brushed metal thing for a Marshall module (thats made of metal). I'm guessing it must be expensive or other people would already be doing it.
