Customize Online or Built To Spec!

Mount electronics, instruments, and more in a Pelican case with our custom Pelican case panels. We offer two options for this process. The first is through our online Custom Plate Creator. The Plate Creator allows panels to be previewed, quoted, and immediately ordered online. If you have a more specific design in mind, or need something our Plate Creator can't do, see below for details on submitting a custom design.

These optionally-waterproof inserts are perfect for creating a custom Pelican FPV ground station case, pyrotechnics firing panel, or launch controller. European style custom Peli panels also available.

We also carry blank panels - click here.

Available Options

Side Cutouts
Make your case useable even when closed with cutouts on the sides of the case.

Note: Side cutouts can compromise waterproofing, and will void Pelican's lifetime warranty. Please contact our customer service department for details.
Laser Marking

Laser Marking
For clean lines on almost any type of material, laser marking works best.

Laser Marking

Recommended for use on any material with a contrasting surface treatment. Works best on anodized aluminum and layered acrylic.

While pre-anodized aluminum is available, we can also anodize your panels post-cutting. Anodizing is available in a number of colors, and provides an attractive, protective finish.

Powder Coating
Protect your panel with a high-quality powder coat, available in a variety of colors!
