a custom side panel like that would cost a couple hundred dollars...

or you can etch it yourself

or you can buy a custom window which is only ~25-50

or you can buy window appliques

or you can buy stickers

bud, there are a bunch of difference ways it can be "thrown" on the side of your computer. Give us more details, do you want it etched into the acrylic window? do you want it airbrushed onto the panel? Do you want it cut out of the case?

You can talk to Bill Owen over at Case mods and PC Modding Supplies he does custome mods...

To be honest, this sort of stuff is not cheap....give us a better description of what you want and someone here can probably walk you through on how to do it yourself for a more reasonable price.

More like the stuff that Bill Owen does.. but an actual image. So if i wanted the Batman logo or something like that on my case someone could cut it for me. and then I'd have a piece of plexi behind it. or if i wanted to graffiti my name... so on so forth

I'm guessing he wants a design laser/water jet cut into his side panel.

Not cheap stuff my friend...
