Good Morning All:
Quick question, I know when engraving glass you normally engrave on the back and mirror and text so it comes out okay. Is this the same for acrylic, or do you engrave on the front? I'm such a novice.....:)

There may be times when you would engrave on the front of a clear surface, but 99% of the time you will engrave the back. It has to do with the reflections mostly - front engravings reflect off of the back and you get a ghost image along with the engraved image and it's hard to read.
