Good to Know

These traits are typical of this material (and not something we consider a fault). Here we try to share with you everything we know about this material; we'd like to empower you with this information so that you may embrace it, and design within the scope of the manufacturer features.

Sample

Laser Discoloration

We find that tightly cut corners can show light marks in reaction to the laser cutting. On this material it's quite minor and presents as a kind of white-blue tinge.
Sample

Easy peel tape on matt

The protective tape doesn’t adhere well to matt side, which can be problematic for techniques like paint fill. If your designs have engraving that you wish to add paint fill, we recommend requesting material to be 'flipped' so that the engraving is done on the gloss side.
Sample

Matt with paint fill

The matt finish can make paint fill difficult, because the paint will 'stick' to the matt surface (whereas on the gloss finish paint will usually wipe off with ease where there isn't engraving).
Sample

Gloss or matt options

The top (front) of this material is matt, and the back (bottom) is gloss. We use the matt side by default. By request, we can use the other side of the material so that it will have a gloss finish.

Recommended Uses

  • We guarantee this range will make anyone think of candy; it's inherently cute and kawaii. Play into this by using it for soft, rounded, playful shapes.
  • Can be used to 'soften' angular shapes. For example, if used for a shape like our Droplet Angled in place of black acrylic (a combination that's commonly done), it makes the design take on a more affectionate style.
  • Can be used to challenge themes. For example, if used for something like our Halloween Shapes Mixed, it makes an otherwise dark theme more approachable, friendly even (very spooky cute!).

More Information

  • Cuts well and leaves a clean, smooth edge line that typically shows the core colour on the sides.
  • Engraves well and can hold fine details (engraved areas typically have a frosted white appearance). If your designs have engraving that you wish to add paint fill, we recommend requesting material to be 'flipped' so that the engraving is done on the gloss side.
  • Comes with a protective tape coating that will need to be peeled off.
  • It is difficult to capture colour correctly; allow for slight variation from monitor to reality.
