1. A flexible printed circuit comprising:
a flexible supporting substrate having a first face and a second face; and
a flexible conductive material deposited by vacuum deposition on at least one of the first face or the second face of the flexible supporting substrate, a flexible conductive circuit formed from the flexible conductive material by electrical discharge machining, and the flexible conductive circuit defining a plurality of electrical component placement circuits to which electrical components may be attached;
a graphic overlay applied to the flexible conductive circuit, and the graphic overlay having windows; and
light emitting devices or light reflecting devices connected to the flexible conductive circuit, and each light emitting device or light reflecting device being aligned with one of the windows such that light from each light emitting device or light reflecting device is visible through one of the windows of the graphic overlay.
