Jim D said: I like to caution anyone before drilling their buttons to consider using the industry standard. Now its your accordion and you have the option of marking any button you wish, but if you decide to sell or trade your accordion in the future any non standard marking will depreciate its value. The industry standard marking is Ab-C-E-G# for a 120 bass accordion. Accordions with fewer bass buttons might only have the C and E buttons marked. Musically yours; JIM D.

I was just wondering, how about using one of those cheep glass engraving tools?
You could mark a cross pattern on the intended buttons which is more than enough for tactile orientation whilst playing.
That way you do not etch (or drill) too deeply into the plastic.
My accordion teacher said she used to mark them with a hot needle.
