    There are several places that do drum heads like you're requesting. The place I used and am quite pleased with is http://www.vintagelogos.com/index.html . I did a 22" head for my acoustic set that I now have set up for rack mounting in front of my e-set. They go down to 16" heads

      I have used drumart.com and woodshed stage art. Drumart.com produced a superior product for a lot less.

            You can always go on the cheap and just get the logo in vinyl on a clear head. Should look good backlit. Should also be able to choose some opaque type colored vinyl/alternative materials as well.

                Hmmm...not sure how much plainer I can make it.

                1. Get a clear or opaque white drum head. You can also get a clear head and just get one big 16 inch decal made in black.
                2. Order some vinyl letters or your logo in question to be made into a decal out of vinyl sticker material or any other material the shop offers...there are all sorts of vinyl like materials they can cut your logo. DECALS ARE RELATIVELY CHEAP.
                3. Apply the logo/decal to the drum head
                4. install lighting and adjust light brightness to taste
                5. Voila'!

                It should look like one of those fancy pumpkin carvings, as an example, here http://www.pumpkincarvingonline.com/...sney-carvings/

                I suggest other materials other than vinyl in case you want more light to come thru. You could also light the bass drum head OUTSIDE the head itself but still inside the inner rim to light up whatever decal you have on the head.

                Alrighty then. Cheap, fast, and easy.

                My work is done here!

                  drumart.com also makes and sells custom vinyl stickers using your own artwork. Could be a good way to go as well. Just stick it on your preferred head as Kenster stated above!

                    How about www.banner.com (look for sales or coupons) or, I believe Fedex has banner making capabilities.

                    Take your graphic idea to them. Have them print it out on some vinyl or variety of materials. Cut it out and ta-da... there ya go.

                    Just food for thought.

                        i'm afraid that printing logo/photo on vinyl stickers when sticks on drumhead, LED light will not light through, any thought? thanks.

                          Tivi,

                          I don't have any dedicated LED lighting in use for lighting up the drum head exclusively, just use stage lighting for the full set. It is a Colorstrip LED light, and it does accentuate the drum head of course. My head is not transparent, but solid black with our name applied. Here are a couple of images to show the head mounted and in use on the e-set.
