I’m Francesca, I get a lot of designing-crafty projects, and I’d be curious to check if your facilities could allow me to make this project, in this case I definitely would consider becoming an active member! I hope you can see the pic, it looks a little weird after uploading. it’s 10 pieces of custom cut acrylic (or other similar plastics), printed.
Welcome to our community. Our Lasercutter will be very useful for your project. It makes really clean cuts on acrylic and they are highly accurate, so for inlays and such this should work very well. I’m not an expert though, but from your sketch, it looks like you could achieve that at SLMS.
I just randomly picked these from posts here on Discourse:
Hey Will, thanks a lot for your reply! The red needs to be a specific colour reference though, so I think I’d be better off with some durable printing techniques. I hope the space can provide something like that!
Hi Mark, thank you very much for this! I will be there for the open evening for sure. From the list of tools I can’t understand if there is a printer that could print on acrylic or similar plastic. If you could advice me on this that would be great!
Yes, screen print would be the solution we have at the space. What is the specific colour match you are look for? Are you matching a pantone? If so i don’t think we have a swatch book. The @silkscreentechs might be able to advise if we have Pantone mixing capabilities here.
Your best option otherwise is either go to a screen printing company or to a print house that have a direct to media printer. As it is only a small batch of 10, the direct to media printer might make the best sense as you wont need to pay for the screen prep, etc.
Thought that would be the case, you never know though with this place. Is this something that might eventually be in the works out of interest? I would be happy to lend a hand with this. I’ll keep an eye out as our current viewing booth could do with an upgrade.
