Plan: create custom patterned, colored, and glittered acrylic sheet.
CAN I: sublimation on a sheet of acrylic (first) then cut with the glowforge.
press HTV first ad then cutting with the GF, less inventory of colored acrylics.
I’ve had no problem sublimating and then cutting, though I usually cut first then sublimate because of the shapes I’m doing.
As far as heat transfer vinyl, I would look at the material safety data sheet first to see in there is any hazardous materials in it.
You can’t cut regular vinyl because of the chlorine, but since I don’t know what each company uses in their products, I would say that you would need to research what the brand uses in it’s product and determine safety from there. I guess my own question would be, would the laser warp it if you did cut it on the GF? I did a quick google search, got this video.
