Used a UV printer on plywood. I printed a clear piece of acrylic a very light pink and cut and laid over print (bright white underneath). It looks best without any glare but I provided photos of both to show perspective.
Oh yes! The pink “shadow” really sells the neon light effect
That is a really neat effect. It actually does look like neon.
Very nice effect. Now I want to hear more about this UV printer
That came out great. NEW RABBIT HOLE EVERYONE!!!
Really cool! Great job!
That is spot on! Nice!
My friend said I should look into buying one…then I looked…and decided I could buy another car. That ended the rabbit hole for me quick.
Haha, yes I did some research yesterday and decided I wouldn’t be able to use it as much as necessary to prevent the ink from drying out. They do have some around the $3000 dollar mark but apparently maintenance is an ongoing thing unless they are in constant use. Too bad.
you found one for 3k? The cheapest one I found was 15k. Told my friend I’ll stick with sublimation and SHE can buy a UV printer.
Yeah, totally Chinese made. Apparently the program it comes with is a rip off that contains a virus as well. Some people have made them work though.
