Re: [BKARTS] Plexiglas



Bill & Don

Go to InkAid.com

Get the adhesive.
Buy either the clear or the opaqye white InkAid.

Put the adhesive on the plexi.
When dry, coat with InkAid.

When dry, print.

This is for inkjet technology, so there is not pressure.
For letterpress you will have to experiment with the lightest impressions.
