Step by Step

Step 1

Step 1: Preparation

Choose which colours you want to use to personalize the trophies. Ensure that there’s a good amount of contrast between the individual layers of acrylic.

Tip:

When ordering, ensure that the TroGlass Satins 3mm Lemon Green Translucent sheet has double-sided adhesive film on one of the sides.

Step 2

Step 2: Laser Process​

Cut out the 15 elements from the acrylic sheets. We recommend using an acrylic cutting grid table for a precise cut. Cover the rest of your table and remove the protective film from the top side (adhesive).
