M350 Universal Mini-ITX enclosure case badge



  • Can anyone tell me where I can purchase custom case badges that will fit the M350 Universal Mini-ITX case badge section please.  (Pfsense or other)

    Size 1.8 x 4.6cm



  • Just a sheet of self-adhesive paper, a color printer and scissors.



  • If this would be my M350 case I would try out the following;

    • email to the pfSense team and ask for a permission from them to use their logo only for private usage at home
    • if you got this permission search someone who is doing custom laser engravings for something around ~$20
    • send them the measurements of the free space in front of the M350 case and a cool 3d pfSense logo you likes
    • let them do the work and send you the small shield or tag made by aluminum, steel or chromed (chromium-plated)
      with this laser engraved logo and then glue it with a hot glue pistol on that M350 case.

    sample engraving on a metal shield
    sample of a shiny 3d pfSense logo
    example for a shiny M300 box with LED read out (small)
    example for a shiny M300 box with LED read out (big)

    If this might be to hard, search somebody who is familiar with paintings and coatings and let him do an artwork
    of your choice, that fits in that small field, I am sure this would be also not really expensive.

    Yeah I was thinking along the line of doing it that way, only all my ink in my printer has dried up again.  I keep replacing the damn ink then never using it, then when I do need to use it its unusable.

    So I was kind of just hoping to find an online store or ebay seller to get it done instead.  Their are load on ebay sellers that make badges but I haven't found any that can do the dimension I need yet.

  • That filthy printer manufacturers!
    Maybe some print-shop? Or just local chat/forum/craigslist?

    Or, as we did back then we were using m0n0 - just paper cut stencil and spray can.



  • A local trophy shop could likely knock one out from an image file. We had some nice chrome with black lettered ones of our design and a bit of text made for a few bucks.



  • Much appreciated guys, thanks for your feedback.
