1st I had some acrylic cut to size. 2nd I had some silver vinyl numbers made. 3rd i put the numbers on the bottom of the key check and last I paint the black on the bottom. It takes a long time but I think it is worth it. They look much better than the thin plastics out there

Mike,
How do you get the silver letters made? It is the perfect size and matches the original. What you provided to your vinyl letter person obviously was not a computer font.

They really look good.

I went to a sign place that does vinyl. They are not a perfect match to the originals because the original glass checks have a little bit longer font. I brought some samples in and they made them. They have to be made reverse so when you stick them on they read right.. I would think there is a sign place by you to get it done. I also had NO SALE made in black and paint the check orange.

The font's of the key checks are amazing,I would agree that your method better simulates an engraved glass key check. I will visit a sign place soon.
What made you choose to mount it to acrylic and not to a blank glass key check? AND did you use black spray paint for the reverse or is there a special vinyl paint?

Thanks for sharing

if I had blank glass key checks I would use them but don`t know where to get oval glass cut. I used black spray paint. Two or three coats
