Re: Borderline Trek Film

So, as I chug along with construction, I'm finally at the point where I'm ready to start making the final DuraTrans for all of the backlit displays.

We're unsure whether we should get a matte finish or a gloss finish on the final pieces, so we're doing a test of each before we proceed. It's a fine line between having to deal with a bunch of reflections vs. having it look like a cheap piece of paper. Luckily, I found a place that does them super cheap. Here's a link if anyone needs them:

I have no idea what the quality os like -- I'll know more when they're shipped to me. The prices quoted on their site are about 1/3 of every other place I've seen, so if they're passable, it's definitely the place I'll be using.

Here's the test file, if anyone's interested:
