Good material for laser cutting a temporary outdoor sign?

Post by wrybread » Wed Nov 11, 2020 10:40 pm

I need to make a sign that's about 1 foot square, and it'll be placed outside for about 2 months. This comes up pretty often for me, so I'm wondering if people have some clever material recommendations. Maybe something at the hardware store does well for this? Or something to buy from a plastics shop?

Something like this, but cheaper. Doesn't have to be quite as good of course:

Maybe there's some flooring material that is laser safe and works well? Or a way to paint on acrylic that has a similar effect? Or something similar?

Thanks for any help.
