Justice League Edge Lit Sign with Laser Foil

Thanks! I’ve ordered Oracal from Signwarehouse and never knew they carried a polyester foil.

This is fantastic! Nicely done! I’m actually surprised how good it looks when lit AND not lit.

This works! This is the method professional use to PPF cars.

Did you peel the adhesive from outside the score lines and it came off easily enough?

Yes, peeled off after the scoring. It came off cleanly, but does become more permanent over time. Only apply to material that you’ll use relatively quickly. Don’t do a bunch of sheets and store them for later use. I haven’t tried it on other material, like draft board. I don’t know how easily it would come off that. I may try it in a day or so and I’ll tag you in a post about the results. The hardest part was applying the foil to the acrylic without any bubbles.

Your project looks really nice! I’ll create some trophies with that technique.

Is their appearance of equal quality? Do the two materials last the same? The image samples for Oracal don’t seem as premium as the Johnson Plastics.

I haven’t used the Oracal, so I can’t weigh in on that.

It’s really nice, shiny stuff. Very thin, so it will show every bump underneath, but I like it that way. Don’t know anything about the Johnson Plastics stuff.
