Got a Mojo control panel plate... but it's blank in the logo area for obvious © reasons. I'd like to add the Super Reverb script logo into the normal spot, just wondering if anyone has done it successfully, and if so... how? My initial thoughts were waterslide decal, but where to find a printer that does white ink? Any ideas? :)

Ideally I think it would need to be "3D" to look any good (have done printed out flat logos before and they look shit haha) ... maybe look at 3D printing? might be worth the extra $$


If you were to do a flat logo I think the best idea would be to stencil the logo and spray paint it

Actually, a stencil is a good idea! Could even hand paint it then too. :thumbup:

Interested in any other ideas out there

That's a difficult one. I guess they're still screened. Would it be possible to do that as a home? Worth researching.

Edit. Just watched how it's done. Interesting but maybe too much hassle for home. Can't embed but it was titled:

have looked at doing that for band tee shirts and came to the conclusion that a stencil and fabric paint does pretty much the same job at 1/3 of the cost (even standard spray paint actually works pretty much the same

I had the same requirement with my first Princeton Reverb build using blank Mojo panels. So I got setup to do it because I wanted my PR to look complete :). I now actually sell Princeton Reverb decals on Ebay (there's no real demand for the others so I stopped doing them). Here's a link to give you the idea https://www.ebay.com/itm/113837128398?s ... 1555.l2649. I've got someone else wanting a "Super Reverb" but I have to order minimum quantities so I'm holding off until I need some more PRs. I can do it way cheaper than the Ebay price for NZG members so PM me if interested.
