    I am making a canned sign and the front is 3/16" translucent white lexan i got from a sign supplier..off a roll...well its curled...like a bananna. which sided do i cut out? how do i get it flattened? what should i do? the sign face i am cutting is 32 x 72. Also...inside the sign which is LED lit...should I put supports for the face to keep it in place if it is pemanently bananna-ed? thanks for any help. Joe

    Usually it says which side is toward the sun - usually the "outer" side of the bend ) <- but sometimes its rolled wrong...hangar bar shouldnt be needed if its only 32" tall, but if it goes the other way, yes...

    It will flatten out by it's self. just slide it in the cabinet.

    is this a face for a channel letter with trim cap or a face for a sign cabinet?

    What they said...
    It should be marked which side faces the sun.
    Once it's in the cabinet it should stay flat.
