To know,

The white color remains transparent to the printing, it is which allows with a green rhodoid leaf placed underneath to achieve a green backlight. For a white backlight, we place a white rhodoid film, for some inscriptions.

A polycarbonate sheet is cut with the cutter, pass at least 3 times the cutter, on your cut line. Place the pvc sheet at the end of a table and pressing hard and with a sharp blow, it must cut without burrs.

A dust bomb is very useful, even better than a cloth, when you place the polycarbonate sheet on the screen-printed sheet, watch out for dust!

If you have despite precautions, there is a scratch on the polycarbonate sheet, you can eliminate it with a polish car.
