Term of the Week: Edge Glow Acrylic

The Term of the Week is a weekly feature where A&E turns to industry experts to define common tools, processes, language, etc. used in the awards, engraving, and personalization industry, including terminology within the business realm. Contact Printwear's digital content editor, Marley Jeranko, if you're interested in contributing and for an opportunity to be featured in our daily eNewsletter. 

Using special light-bending acrylic, edge glow acrylic is a cast acrylic and is available in a range of colors. Laser engraving on edge glow acrylic turns it white like any other cast acrylic; laser cutting the material creates a unique feature, causing the edges to glow in normal light.
