Engraved Acrylic

Creative engraved acrylic portfolio cover.

Laser cut cast acrylic also engraves beautifully which is great for branding your engraved acrylic products, wedding invitations and signage. Engraving vaporises the top layer of cast acrylic leaving a clean frosted finish with a contrasting colour. Some acrylics engrave with more of a contrast to some others, do ask us for advise.

Acrylic is commonly referred to by the brand name Perspex. There is a huge range of acrylics available in clear, coloured, frost, fluorescent, opaque and also translucent.
