Partial and Full Etch

Etching on plexi provides you an extra layer for personalizing your control panel.  Artwork is etched onto the bottom of clear plexi, or on top of opaque or translucent color plexi.  You have two options to choose. 

Panel Etch: Partial Etch (sample illustration) Panel Etch: Full Etch (sample illustration)
Panel Etch: Full Etch (sample illustration) Panel Etch: Partial Etch (sample illustration) 

Partial Etch

A partial etch is a graphic up to 5 inches square, placed nearly anywhere on the control panel face.  You can etch a logo, name/handle, or illustration.  Please note that this is not the same as etched text; you will submit the graphic to us for etching.  

To place an order for a partial etch, select the "Partial (5"x5")" option next to the "Full or Partial Etching" label.  We must know where to place your etch graphic on the panel, so be sure to provide placement instructions within the "Additional Instructions" text form, or submit the graphic using our Photoshop template.  If we don't have this, we will put the task on hold, and send a message asking for clarification on where you want the graphic to appear on the panel.

Full Etch

A full etch can occupy the entire area of the control panel.  It can consist of a single illustration, or multiple illustrations placed strategically on the control panel.  To submit your graphic, please use our Photoshop template and click "Choose file" next to "Submit Etch Artwork".

Etch Graphic Resolution

It is recommended that the graphic submitted is high-resolution - between 300dpi or 600dpi (dots per inch).  Anything less may etch with less fidelity.  Click for more information about submitting etch artwork.
