Reproduction Warning placard and Switch labels Series 2A
« on: February 13, 2015, 03:13:57 PM »

As some of you may have seen on the 2A page, I've been looking into remaking some of these labels for my 2A GS.

As far as I know, these are no longer available.

I have a quote from a metal label company that I will go ahead with, this will supply,

All of the Army switch labels, i.e,

     MAP LIGHT,
     FUEL GAUGE LH TANK RH TANK,
     TRAILER FLASHER, &
     LH TANK RH TANK.

They will also produce the Low Ratio Warning placard for the bulkhead.

All of the labels will be produced on 1mm aluminium using the photo anodised process, which is the way that they were originally made (I think - I'm not an expert in this field!).

They will be made in the same font, and reverse printed ( black background) for the switch ones, and in the correct 2 colours for the warning sign. They will be the same dimensions as the originals.

I guess that if I need a set of these, then other people will as well, so I'm more than happy to produce as many sets as we all need.

At this stage, I will probably sell them as a full set, so the price will be,

$ 25.30 plus postage to your address.

I'm not making a profit on this, that's not what it's about, but covering my costs.

There are set up fees as well as freight and graphic imaging costs.

Unfortunately, as it will be a small run for the printers, I will not be able to show any proofs, but I'm happy to order them and if they are satisfactory then everyone can pay once we see them.

I'm pretty confident that they will look almost exactly the same as the originals, but 50 years newer.
The printers seem very professional, and have done work for Defence in the past.

So, how many sets do I order?

Let me know via this thread, I've told the printers that I'll get back to them with numbers in a week, so last orders will need to be in by 0900 EDST Monday 23 Feb 15.

Cheers,

Mike.

Thanks for all the interest everyone, we are currently looking at 24 sets which is terrific.

While this job is being set up, does anyone need any other labels of this type, say for an ambulance or FFT?

It would be a good time to get them made, as the printers are only charging a flat rate set up fee for the whole job, rather than for the individual labels.

So if anyone is after anything else, all that I will need is a fairly good photo, and the exact dimensions to use for the artwork.

It's great that there is interest in this, it's what REMLR is all about. Ive got some good help over the years from here, it's nice to be able to put something back.

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike
Can they photi etch aluminium? I would lile to get a new placard done for the transfer case instructions that mounts above the speedo and gauges. This might be something that others might be interested in as they fade like mine has.
