Rowmark bag tags for a local skating club. E (1000/20) C (150/50) Thanks everyone for posting about this product. www.jpplus.com quickly shipped the sheets and it is such an easy product to use. There was some some blue residue on the edges of the white but it easily wiped off with GooGone…which of course gave them a nicer orange smell!
Take a look at how off the cuts were compared to the app! Should have used Snapmarks.
I just realized that this is going to be a lot like the other posts that will be buried. Hopefully the new machines will link to this calibration in the setup. I’d say it would be good for the factory to calibrate them, but it wouldn’t account for all the variations in where the machine is being placed, such as unlevel tables or tables that can be moved so, unlevel floors as well.
Cool you brought that material up, I hadn’t seen it before, just goes to show that posts will continually get buried or forgotten!
I’m guessing it may be the two tone acrylic? Like white over blue. I’ve been using the two tone black over clear for a project. Pretty sure it’s extruded…it has a ‘high smell factor’, but works as it should for engraving. Took me a few tests to get the settings figured out.
I played around with the settings a little more for another project (Crew Member Reunion for the Aircraft Carrier I work for - name badges) az99EVxvQ6qpXJoh5ZOxOQ_thumb_14dba|500x500 :
Engrave: 1000/35 - (much sharper)
Cut: 150/60 (lower did not cut cleanly - this worked better - still sticky but can be leaned off with Rubbing Alcohol)
Going to try engraving: 1000/15
This type of material is engraved from the front. The top color layer is generally very thin. There are exceptions of course: color+clear versions are available that would be reverse engraved, and there are 3-layered versions that are meant to be front-engraved but from both sides.
