print transparency on plexiglass
« on: January 07, 2008, 02:00:49 AM »

i am trying to figure out the best way to transfer my photographic imagery onto plexiglass - as a transparency.

would lamination be the trick?

any recommendations on what kind of transparency i should be printing onto (from my epson 3800)?

i want to end up with a very tight finished result.

any ideas of what my overall process should be?

That might work, as long as the print is on transparent media.

Call a sign making shop and have them run your job directly on plexi using their flatbed UV Curable machine?  There is transparency media out there, but mounting it will make you crazy.

I know this is an old post but check out www.gallerydirect.com--They print directly onto plexiglass using a flatbed printer.
