being unsatisfied with the way my old set up looked like, i decided to try the photocopied plate method. i walked into kinko's, copied it for 89 cents, lamenated it for 4 bucks, and cut it to size for free. took about 15 minutes. got home, lightly veiled the lamenation, and when it dried i mounted it with my lasershield.
old set up-real plate, lasershield, veiled plexiglass
new setup-lamenated photocopy of plate with light coat of veil, lasershield
let me know what you guys think...
