Graphic Overlays and Dead front panels

Graphic Overlays and Dead Front Panels

Graphic overlays and dead front panels are available in polycarbonate and polyester materials and can be digitally cut and punched to custom specifications. Precise control markings, dials, safety instructions and brandings are screen or digitally printed onto the overlay. Dead front graphics can be applied and will only appear when back-lit. Overlays and panels can be processed up to 24" x 36" in size.

Graphic Overlays

No matter what kind of panel you have—be it medical, electronic, instrument, or industrial—U.S. Nameplate Company can design a custom graphic overlay printed to meet your needs. A customer service specialist will ask you to describe how and where you’d like to use the overlay. He or she will make recommendations about materials, sizes, layout, and design. Because everything we do is custom, we start from scratch with each new order. Our engineer and artists will ensure you receive the ideal product you require.

Dead Front Graphics

You may be in need of dead front graphics or backlit overlays for gauges, dashboards or instrument panel overlays. These graphics will be hidden until a light source from behind reveals the icon or indicator that needs to be seen by the customer or user. Your design may also require different backlit colors for day and night. Backlit graphics can be designed to display almost any color and you will want to specify to your designer which features need to light up and the different colors for each.
