Hi All

Can anyone recommend a shop to have a custom front panel made (3mm alu, powder coat, screen print) in the UK/EU area? I will be ordering 1 for prototype, then orders of 10-20...I'm struggling to get any replies from Grawart and other shops I searched and found...it seems like no one can be bothered with small orders...?

Also I will need to have the chassis made, preferably in the same place but could be elsewhere...

Thanks!

Yes, he is in business.
I mailed him to another address, will let you know when this is fixed.

I have used Frank a lot but I am not sure if he does powder coat and silk screen. I think he just does engraving.

I know for sure that SRS in the UK will do what you want. Contact Martin Deards there and tell him I sent you. His email is:

He might not silk screen himself, but the Jensamp-51X, OV560, PMV70X and 903-51X panels he did for me are silk screened.

Powder coating might be outsourced too, however, here is a list of powder coating colours Frank offers (scroll down).

I was just in contact with Frank who informed that he has just bought a very expensive UV printer, which will print on anodized surfaces.  No need to screen print ...
