We have a project interview at work today, so I made rulers for the interview team. We are generally doing markups on plans, so I made them into templates of the various note shapes that we tend to use. The 1/8" acrylic was too thick for a template, especially with small-ish shapes, so I went and found some thinner stuff to use.
I definitely took some inspiration from the Gift of Small Measure in that I have the corners all with different sized radii.
The acrylic that I got had a plastic sheet over the top and it just seemed to melt into the engrave when I was testing, so I did these with no protective layer. As such they built up some of the dust and then there are some remnant smudging after cleaning them. I just used dish soap to clean them. If I intend to do more of these, and something tells me I’m going to do them for the whole office… then I will need to find a better cleaning option.
I also need to figure out the best approach to photographing clear acrylic.
