Custom Control Panel Overlays
Quite simply a control panel overlay is a plastic fascia which is screen printed or digitally printed on the rear of a clear plastic substrate so that the printed detail is viewed through the front face. Control panel overlays differentiate themselves from a panel in that graphic overlays incorporate a level of interactivity within the piece. Panels are usually just a protective piece, that may or may not have cut-outs for buttons, switches or windows.
Dyna-Graphics delivers some of the industry’s highest quality, longest lasting control panel overlay products. With more than 45 years of experience, we have the skills and capabilities to deliver a control panel overlay that matches your exact specifications.
Control Panel Graphic Overlay Benefits
Rigid control panel overlays provide a flat surface that protects buttons and retail displays behind the protective graphic overlay. This is extremely helpful for industries or products that are often cleaned, or regularly exposed to dirt or chemicals. Control panel overlays and provide a clean, flat look from a design perspective. Embossing the overlay will provide textural context to the user. This enables a designer to provide emphasis to a section or button.
