# What are the options for a thin light source (e.g. LED)? [closed]

I'm looking to make or buy something resembling an LED, that would be thin (about 0.5mm or less) and cheap (<0.1$in mass production). Any suggestions? ## closed as primarily opinion-based by Ian, Andrew♦Mar 27 '14 at 11:06 Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

• Nothing wrong, it looks great. I'd like to have a few more directions though. +1 – Michael Litvin Mar 26 '14 at 14:12
