Custom Graphic Overlays – The Basics

Custom graphic overlays are digitally cut and sub-surface printed into Lexan® and other materials to provide the most accurate fitting and durable custom overlays. Digital cutting is done to a tolerance of .067 inches on each graphic overlay using plotter driven tools that eliminate the need for expensive custom graphic overlay dies. All printing for custom graphic overlays, including variable barcodes, numbering and text is done from behind - providing clear and deep sub-surface protection of the graphic overlay design. The predominate material for custom graphic overlays, Lexan®, is just one of the many graphic overlay materials we offer. All custom graphic overlays ship within 4 days standard.

Custom Graphic Overlays – Popular Uses

Custom graphic overlays are used in many commercial, industrial, military and consumer applications. Lexan® graphic overlays, originally developed for military use, are the most common custom graphic overlays because of the durable nature of printed Lexan®. Here are some popular examples of custom graphic overlays:

  • Military Use: Custom graphic overlays are used on submarines, aircraft and vehicle bodies and for numerous control panel graphic overlay applications.
  • Industrial Use: Custom graphic overlays are used on interior and exterior control panels for applications ranging from heavy equipment to fine instruments.
  • Commercial Use: Lexan® and LexValu™ for curved areas is used on custom graphic overlays for espresso machines, to HVAC units.
  • Consumer Use: Cell phones, laptops, PDAs and many consumer devices use custom graphic overlays to protect vital interfaces.

Laminating Adhesive:


You only need to choose a laminating adhesive when using Lexan® material. All other materials already have adhesive. Please note that using a thicker adhesive will not increase the strength of the bond to most surfaces; it can in fact it could possibly do the exact opposite to the final product. There are three choices of adhesives to choose from:

2 mil 3M #467MP used for mainly smooth surfaces

2 mil LSE used for adhering to Low Surface Energy

5 mil 3M #468MP used for very rough surfaces
