A customer is having a game board made. Its 30 x 50 inches and printed on some kind of plastic, I think he called it “backlight board,” which I’ve never heard of. He wants to be able to hang it on the wall while its not in use and put it on a table when they play the game. He wants to protect it with something that doesn’t scratch, but he thinks OP3 AR1 is too expensive. Any ideas?

It's probably some kind of game that will fit into a light box. If your customer isn't concerned about fading of the colors on the board, I would suggest using the .090 plexi on it. It is a bit lighter than the .118 and would provide some protection for the transparency. And it would cost alot less than OP3 if that is the main concern.

(Why do these people spend ALL their money on making these "projects" and then expect US to come up with a cheap way of finishing it off???)

There is a film-based produce used with large format printers to create backlit display graphics. If this is what he is having made it probably will be in some sort of box that includes the light. If so, seems it will bow if laid flat to play the game unless the plexi is very thick or reinforced.

Guess he wants it by Xmas, too?
