Hi,

I'm working on a ceramic design.

I do have a question : how thin (in mm or fraction of mm) a line can be and still have good visibility ?

I'm working on Chicago skyline and some line might be 0.5mm or less...

I never tested to see what is the absolute minimum sized line that you can see. The "faux mold" lines on the Tropic Oasis chips are .26 mm thick, and are easily distinguishable.

This is how I'm with my design at the moment.
Each chip will have two different faces.

Here's the T5 chip.
Antenna's on the buildings would be +/- 0.29mm thick.

I really wonder if the Kansas icon would print OK on a 39mm ceramic chip with all the small details...
