are there any other websites that does custom panels other then frontpannel express?

i need a black anodized aluminum pannel for my Ear+, but frontpanelexpress's black anodized panels dont have color on the sides (depth) because they dont have a facility to anodize after the milling process.

*natural aluminum color on the sides*

it would be great if anyone can recommand any place that does anodize after milling. if not, ill have to think of some other way

Thanks!

That would be a three step process to get that part you have pictured, then.

1. Mill
2. Anodize
3. Mill and/or engrave/or paint.

Unless you don't mind having all the lettering cut into the surface to be anodized as well.

Try www.emachineshop.com They are a LOT more expensive, though.

I would use emachineshop but it is WAAAAAY more expensive than FPE..... It does have a cool feature to view it in 3D. It is basically cad software.
