About the overlays:
The overlays on the new panels are directly printed to the metal using a high quality and super durable epoxy ink system. Unlike vinyl overlays with polycarbonate or vinyl laminate, the epoxy is a hard durable surface resistant to a lot more abuse. This is most durable overlay possible!
Each panel is cut, hardware installed, and then powder coated for a rock solid finish. Once complete, the panel is placed in an industrial metal printer and the overlay is "sprayed on" at 800DPI much like my printer does on vinyl. Because epoxy ink is thick there may be some texture when finished as the inks are mixed to create the full color pallet. This is normal and looks pretty slick.
NOTE: Your hands will touch the epoxy. Under normal use this will not affect the print. Use of a plexi overlay is not required and therefore its not included. Some people have sprayed a clear coat over the panel before use to add additional protection, however, this is not necessary.
