This was apart of a project I was working on for StockingNoir.com that I made at Techshop
The total design was cut and etched onto 1/4" thick acrylic with dimensions of 20" x 20"
Step 1: To Start
I made some test tags first. I etched the logo straight on one and mirrored it for the other. It is hard to tell from the picture, but if you look closely you can see that the back lit one is a little bit harder to read due to the glare from the windows. But if your going to add some LED lighting behind or below the plaque then you will get some awesome results. For this plan we went with the design directly on the front of the acrylic.
Step 2: Get Your Design, and It's Cutting Etching Time.
Do as many test runs as you can before go all out on the final piece of acrylic.
Step 3: Okay Now It's Ready to Mount
So there ya go.
Awesome (pictures don't do justice).
Feel free to experiment cutting and reshaping for a larger look and feel.
