Looking for Elec. panel labels

I am upgrading my electrical panel on my IP35 and will be changing some of the items on the panel. I would like to buy breaker labels that are brown like the panel and the original labels. All I can find are black labels.

Thanks

You need to find a plastic engraver who can make them to your order. If there is a material available in the desired color, you should be OK.

Sometimes you can find a specialty house, like:

You can also try your local trophy shop. They have to make them to put on their product.

what I did for my panel is use a PC, write the label to font/size to fit, print to required color, cut to size and glue a piece of hard transparent plastic over the label to give it stiffeness, then stick it on the electrical panel. from 3 feet away it looks as good as original. the transparent plastic comes from those key-tabs use in key box.

I didn't think of it before, but Avery makes a printable (laser or ink jet), transparent label that could work on a blank label.
