Square cut and solo button covers

Does anyone know if you can buy the square pushbutton caps like ssl's have, and if any come pre printed with solo or cut?

I don;t remember what brand of switches are in SSL desks, but once you determine that, then you can buy the "blank" caps from the original manufacturer. Then find a local engraver to add the actual engraving.

Here in the OKC area, I found a guy (I call him "Engraver John") who normally does stuff like door signs, name badges, etc. He works with both plastic and metal and has various computer control machines for the different materials.

But, John enjoys the off-beat projects I bring him! This front panel was done on a computer controlled gizmo that actually "scratches" the surface of the metal (or, plastic if required):

This rackup of four Langevin AM-16's had four plastic laser engraved "sub panels":

The main point is that there are a number of ways to mark/engrave any surface. Find a local supplier who likes a challenge!
