I will not take advanced orders on these until I have a product line ready to roll. Its one thing to take an order and have to print, cut, check and ship, its another to take a payment and then have to wait on another company.

Dont like to do it when its me buying, so I wouldnt ask someone else to do it.

Cut samples in, satisfactory results... order for new machine placed. I'm going to work on updating printing and cutting templates for this weekend, so I can minimize waste and make them easier to make.

Once I get the machine in and get my final sample done, then the beta test orders go out. With luck, thats end of next week.

Thanks to Chad at Accugraphics for all the help!

So curious, could custom things be added to the panel now or no?

the ones I have already printed and run through my current machine, and the ones that have been photographed? Junked. they all have had small issues that would not be suitable for a production piece. Im trying to keep quality stuff flowing from this shop

when the design is 100% finished, I will see what area is available to add things. The designers of these did not waste much real estate. When you pull off the surround, they look a lot bigger than the actual viewing area.

I think something that might look really cool would be to but a very light watermark of a crawling XJ on one side behind the tach and the Jeep logo watermarked on the other side behind the speedometer. Or it might look like **** haha.
