I am looking for a robust and professional looking way to label the switches and circuit breaker in the panel. I have them in a row on the bottom panel, on a carbon look background. Anybody with a good tip?

You can print your own very satisfactory labels with a p-touch label printer. All sorts of tapes, coloured or metalised available. Not v. Expensive but you could no doubt borrow one (including mine) if you prefer. David Joyce, GXSDJ

Jeroen,

Take a picture of your panel, measure your buttons center to center and
bring that information to a sign guy/vinyl cutter. Have him lay it out
in the font of your choosing, then cut the letters in the color of your
choice, in a high quality "premium" vinyl. He'll apply transfer tape to
the words for easy instillation. Or, bring the panel, if easily done,
and have him install the lettering for you. Cheap and looks very
professional.

Wife and I do this stuff daily...

Another way is to use a dry transfer label kit.

I use a full system from Decal Pro FX. I print off my sheet on Excel and then follow the instructions and transfer the lettering. Does a nice job and when coated with a clear coat is dead flat will last forever. For a one off airplane, itís kind of expensive.

Iíve done the clear label maker tape. Not as professional but it works fairly well if it sticks and has no air bubbles under it.

Silk screening is excellent also and some higher quality sign shops like Jeff and Maryís can do very good work as he will use thin vinyl and for a reasonable price. The sign shop labels can be coated with clear and will stick forever also.

Note: Clear coat has to be put on very thin or it will lift any tape. Put a dust coat on first and let it really tack, then another thin coat, then a final coat. Looks great and is tough enough to take wear and tear.

It is your custom aircraft, do what you like best.

Best Regards,
Bud Yerly
