Hi Bob,

Here's one I found for a Raspberry PI for a 1602 LCD.

Plus some 3D printable ones

Bezel here, presumably to hide any cut marks.

Laser cut kit.

This is from a couple of minutes on Google. Nothing perfect yet but hopefully you can find something. Key words I used are 1602 LCD Case.

If you're stuck I can print you one.

Hello!

I really do not know how big your project size is but there are few options available on element14 too, this enclosure is having a battery compartment as well.
