Graphics overlays used on electronic panels are usually produced using Lexan® or polycarbonate plastic. The printing on these overlays is done on the underside of the material and then a transfer tape carrying the adhesive is applied after the printing. This process produces a product with a tough unprinted top surface. With this technique the printing cannot be damaged or scratched because it is literally "subsurface"
Plastic nameplates are most often produced using subsurface printing
