    Recently I finished my custom pedalboard/flightcase, but there are still some small details that need to be adressed.

    Therefore I am searching a way to label the following:

    - My patchbay: in, out, fx send, fx return
    - My build in switch for choosing between: wireless or cable

    The labels need to be attached to a black tolex-like material and I prefer to be able to use colors for marking the patchbay.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can make my own labels?

    Thanks in advance!

    P-Touch w/ the high strength adhesive labels. You won't believe how many types of labels they have.

    Looks nice, but a little too expensive... We do have an old Dymo, but I'd rather have something more elegant than a typical label with white background.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Yeah, not to many other options that would be cheaper and easier to use though.

    Good idea, but you would have to put a clear coat over it after applying. Otherwise, it could eventually lift.

    all jokes aside, if ur not too caught up in extravagant looks, a silver sharpie will take well and show up great on black tolex/case material
