Call your screen printer's supply house. Somebody like Lawson's.

Can't remember which ink, but print it backwards on the reverse side if it is clear plexiglass. Example: red letters with a blue outline. Print the red letters like they would appear in a mirror, print blue over it the same way. Then, hold up the sign and face the side you didn't print on out for viewing. Does that make sense? I don't know if I explained it very well.

Because of the smell and mess I always send out my screen printing, but the ink we use for acrylic is Inktech solvent based general purpose.
