Durable graphic overlays and front panels for equipment controls and user interfaces

Custom Front Panels & Control Overlays

Designed for Equipment Control and User Interface

  • Graphic overlays, faceplates, front panels, and membrane switches are applied over a product’s control panel to communicate information or direction to the end user. Graphic overlays make a powerful first impression about a product or brand and connect the end user to the machine, device, or equipment. Graphic overlays define the user experience and must be durable, attractive, functional, and engaging in order to provide a great user experience.

How to design custom panels and overlays?

  • The easiest way to design custom barcode labels is through our Universal Designer, where you can specify every label element, including size, text, logo, background, corner radius, hole diameter and placement, and data sequence. You may also submit an engineered drawing or call to speak with one of our design specialists. Our design team and 30+ years of industry experience allow Express to evaluate business needs and develop lasting identification solutions for large-scale deployment.

How much do custom panels and overlays cost?

  • The minimum order cost for panels and overlays is $300. Higher-volume orders significantly reduce the per-unit cost. Since all panels and overlays are fully-custom, the exact price depends on the material, size, and quantity.

Why should I use a custom panel and overlay provider?

  • With decades of custom manufacturing experience, Express has honed its ability to understand unique customer requirements and applications, manage complex data sequences, parse complex engineered drawings, satisfy the strictest tolerances, manage multiple shipment dates and locations, and deliver on the tightest deadlines.
