Hi guys,

I went through a lot of posts on this forum about the board graphics, and still is not clear to me what is the best way of printing on a board that is not PBT.

Due to the large surface of the print, rice paper is not in option. Personally, I think of silk which is screen-printed, but would still like to get confirmation from you.

Is PBT can be used on boards that are CNC 3D cut, or only on a flat surface?

i guess pbt has a certain amount of elasticity to flex to certain concaves/channels at some point i would think they need vacuum forming though..? interesting question

Thanks plummet for the advice.

I thought about it, but I'm not so skilled with sprays. And I do not know how well will epoxy glue to painted wood.

I would like that the graphics look professional, similar to the factory boards ... but not on PBT.

paint after you layup your glass then do another resin layer.

think of a simple yet cool design. if you paint it yourself yourl get a lot more saticfaction out of it compared to a graphic someone else has done.

I remember seeing a video on here of a guy doing graphics to a board, the order in which he laid the paint and epoxy etc ... looked pretty pro when he was finished. Maybe it was paint ... might have been graphic sheets too ...

why not print directly to a large sheet of rice paper?

It is difficult to find here such a large format of rice paper.

Bought a black 100% silk.
I thinking now to таке paint gun and draw graphics (white) directly on silk, and then to put her in lamination.

Has anyone tried this?

If this is not the good solution for any reason, I hope that someone will stop me in time ...

Duh, have you decided how you are going to do your graphics???
Maybe some pictures ...

Do a test with the silk and make sure it does not peel off like peel ply. Generally only cotton is used for graphics, but I have no idea about silk.
