Every front panel is counted as a single item and our production price is determined by the individual design elements. Front Panel Designer gives you full control over costs.
You can see the price of your panel at any time during the design process, and with the help of the detailed itemization breakdown you'll know what every element costs. Pricing examples can be found under Inspiration.
We offer a volume discount when five or more of the same design are ordered together. An automatic discount scale, which is also shown to you in the price calculation in Front Panel Designer, is applied to quantities of up to 29 units. Information on discounts for larger volumes (30 units or more) are available and can be provided on request.

Volume discounts apply to only front panels produced from our material. If you supply the material, the percentage discounts are halved.
The production time for order values up to $2,000 is normally five business days. For larger orders and special procurement, production may take a little longer. If you need your order sooner, it can be expedited for an additional surcharge.

FPD DESIGN SERVICE
In order to produce your front panel, we need an FPD file. FPD files can only be created in Front Panel Designer and are already formatted for our production system.
If you are unable to use Front Panel Designer, we can provide an FPD design service for you for a fee. Simply send us a technical drawing of your front panel to Info@frontpanelexpress.com and leave the rest to us. Ideally, please send us your design in DXF or STEP format, a dimensioned drawing is preferable.

Got a logo and want to have it engraved? Engraving files must be in HPGL format, you simply add these in Front Panel Designer using the HPGL import function. A guide to creating HPGL files can be found here.
If you do not want to create your own HPGL file for your logo, we’ll be happy to do this for you. Send us a vector-based template to Info@frontpanelexpress.com. We can also vectorize your pixel graphics if you do not have a vector file available.
