By Graphite I assume you want a fake carbon fibber fabric appearance not
just a gray color.

Try Avery Dennison

Alot of people like Kurz, or colorworks could decorate it after forming.

A printer like Donprint or Serigraph could print the sheet before you form

I have heard some people are thermo forming real carbon fiber.

Let me know what you decide.

scientific in my approach.

    I look forward to your suggestions for a sticky selector!
