Can I ask where you got your punch press and punch tools?
Looks a lot easier than drilling!

I bring my PDF artworks (USB key)  to a specialized photocopy shop,
then they print them on auto-adhesive vinyl. This does a very nice job
but not scratch proof.. So the second step is to bring the 8.5" X 11"
to a laminating shop. 
(The places where they 'oven' transparent plastics
over big pictures then glue them on a wood frame.)
The idea is to just oven that transparent film over my
layout vinyls to make them scratch proof and that's it !
I just align the final artwork over my aluminum plates
and stick them over.
I punch all the holes and VOILÀ !
By the way I have some 'real' silkscreened modules
in my modular mixed with my own 'vinyled' front paneled
modules and you can't barely see the 'look' differences.
