I'm looking for a circular bar graph to go around a rotary encoder. I've seen this sparkfun one, and it's nice and all, but it's too expensive as I need five. Plus I don't even need it to be so elaborate.

Yeah, that's definitely an option, however I don't really have any way of making it look nice. So I'd really like to find something in a nice package.

How many segments are required & inside diameter??
You could dressup a homemaid with a three layer ring; first ring , one hole per segment to fit LED; second ring. larger holes; third ring, film overlay to delineate the trapezoids with frosted windows. If I were doing it, would use black painted 1/8 & 3/16 in plastic sheet, with frosted mylar printed with overlay.
