How Do You Guys Lable Your FX Boxes? Dou you stencil, or do you gave some other methods for getting the most proffesional/comercial looking results? I am building a few pedals and need advice on painting and most importantly... LABELING my finnished projects! Thanks guys!!

I like to use a water-slide decal paper called Lazertran. See my page for an example :
Have a look at my links page for further examples.

Rub-on lettering sometimes, laser printed clear labels other times. Both will need some laquer over top. I use clear nail polish.

Has anyone tried the clear inkjet labels? I wonder how they compare to the laser-type...

I draw on aluminium sheet with a fine overhead projector pen then drop it into ferro chloride of a minute or so then rub in enamel paint.

I use slide-off decals, too. I've heard that if you cut the labels with rounded corners and use the decal softener on them, then clearcoat, you can't see the edges at all.
I haven't tried the softener yet; I just cut out a huge decal to cover the whole top of my pedal and clearcoated the whole thing. I think it looks cool; I did a brushed-steel effect on a Hammond box with some medium-grit sandpaper before applying the decal and clearcoat.
