Default finding the lines on white

Hi All,

I put a flourescent tube above and forward of where i weed ..it brings out the lines. Some use a light table and some use a pounce bag.

Some materials/colors are easier to see the cut lines on, one forgotten thing to look for when shopping for a supplier.

One time a glitter material was so bad that I tried everything, even turning the lights out and using an LED head lamp.

White is the hardest for some reason, but if you get the light just right you'll see it. If it's a complex design it helps to have a printed image of it next to you, just helps when it's hard to see what you're weeding.
