Backlight for Title Description on FPV Ground Station

Hi guys, i will start build my ground station next month, i would like to have led iluminated description title for each switch toggle function, but i dont know how can i do it,

For example, switch toggle for power on/of lcd, in title description under switch toggle i will have led illuminated title description: LCD Power,

See if it will work:

I will buy transparent acrylic, then i will use led backlight under acrylic (http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/46...backlight.html)
and over acrylic i will have carbon fiber vinyl electronic cutted letters (LCD Power for example)
Link for Carbon Fiber Vinyl: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2D-High-Glos...ht_1937wt_1163

This will work ? I need these backlight, or can i simple put white paper with leds under acrylic that i will have same effect ?

Can somebody help me with it ? Thanks for all

I did something similar and used white paper with a light behind it and it worked great. Otherwise, you can sand the acrylic to get a diffused effect for the light and not need the paper. sand the back side of the acrylic so the top that you see will still be glossy.

Do you know if this 2D Gloss vinyl passes light (translucent) or not, because i will have to cut titles text and it have to block backlight, do you have photo of your groundstation updated with backlight ? Thanks !!!
