which material should i use
January 17, 2016 05:47AM
Hello there,
I am interested in printing the name and logo of my shop to post it outside the shop (25cm- 45cm height prints).
I am hopping to make a smooth, shiny and polished appearance.
What material can be used for this purpose?
Is it possible to find a material which, up on exposure to sun and rain, won’t be affected that much for this particular purpose.
Thank you in advance.

ABS can be smoothed in an airtight box with acetone-vapour, so it will look like a proffessional injection-moulded part winking smiley

... depends on fillers/additives - old PC and printer housings are made mostly from injection molded ABS -- 'natural' or beige coloured tends to get a 'darkened yellow' surface after years, carbon filled black surfaces don't show changes in colour or brittleness ...
