I don't actually have a good one right now.  But I would spend some more time on it, if I had a cheap/effective alternative.  Right now - just block letters.

You can also very easily make your own silkscreens.

Any art supply store has the frame and the emulsion, as well as the ink and squeegee.

You print your logo on a sheet of acetate (laser printer) and place that on your prepared screen. Expose to a light (time varies with light source). Spray wash the screen, and let dry.

Lasts a long time - works particularly well for screens that need detail.

It is much easier than it sounds.

We went to a little more expense and had vinyl cut and applied to our cases.

Cost more but since we have a sign shop in house it worked well.

Although it really dosen't cost all that much (a few bucks per unit).

Not to swerve too far, but how do you go about numbering your cases?  The order in which you purchased them?  Their order in the truck/trailer pack?  Their dollar value? Smile

We used to do that and use a special epoxy ink - nuthin' but D9 will get that stuff off Wink

I went by what goes closest to me at the mix position:
mixer, processing rack, mic cables, AC cables.
It's probably a ridiculous system, but I did it.
