Default Homemade Custom Dial Question

Hey guys, I've been bitten by the mod bug and am going to be making a custom dial out of an exotic material (not letting the cat out of the bag yet). Question is, does anyone know where I can source some indices that I can glue or stick on the dial? I was thinking I could get a used dial and try to remove the indices and reinstall on my new dial but I'm not sure that is a viable option. The dial is probably going into a SKX mod I'm contemplating. Any help is greatly appreciated.

-Kenny

Why not print a dial overlay and add lume markers by eye.

I was really asking where to acquire the markers.
