Suitable LED's for solid acrylic letters

Hi All

We have just taken delivery of a sheet of 24mm opal acrylic (wow that is heavy + expensive) to start experimenting with making solid acrylic letters in house on our CNC.

Can anyone recommend suitable LED's?

We could do with something very narrow and with the ability to flex in the flat direction, i.e not the roll direction. We don't want to solder loads of ribbon pieces together to follow the letter shape.

We've used the "S" shaped flex ribbon LED's in the past but the ones we had sourced were quite wide and can't seem to see anything narrower.

There are quite a few trade suppliers making the finished letters but does anyone else make their own in-house - any general tips?

Many Thanks
Dave
