Step by Step

Step 1

Step 1: Preparation

Choose which colors you want to use for the trophy. Ensure that there is a good contrast between the individual layers.

Tip:

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

Step 2: Laser Process​

Cut out the 15 elements from the acrylic sheets. For perfect results, we recommend using an acrylic cutting grid table. Cover the rest of the table and remove the protective film from the top side.
