We’re continuing down our path of bringing together our Glowforge lasering with sublimation. While we previously gave you the Ultimate Guide to Sublimating on Acrylic, we’re taking it a big step forward with this tutorial and exploring how engraving fits into the acrylic sublimation picture.
That’s right – in this tutorial, we’re going to test all of the different scenarios we could think of when it comes to engraving on sublimated acrylic, addressing whether to sublimate or engrave first, how it looks to sublimate on the back of an engraved piece and more.
