I've been thinking to use a plotter to cut graphics for a board ...they look great ...but I'm affraid the material for the stickers won't adhere to the epoxi ...and eventually delaminate .
what is the best material for graphics to place under glass? I've heard of rice paper ...very thin almos transparent, but how do you print on that ??
can you use other types of paper?? I live in Costa Rica and the variety of resourses here are limited...
I need some ideas !! Suggestions?

yes, the rice paper. When you soak it with epoxy it will become transparent. Yust put it underneath the glass-fibre cloth layers, so you don't sand it later, it will be visible very good.
I printed only smaller pictures. I taped rice paper on the edges to a harder paper.
