I did that once on a panel sent to Schaeffer to engrave (lots of
shallow slots along the bend lines with no infill).  Shortly after
sending the order I got a phone call from a rather distraught young
lady who was concerned that I hadn't specified the colour of the paint
infill.  Took me a while to convince her that, yes, really, I did want
those lines WITHOUT infill, and yes, yes, I do understand I won't see
them very well, yes, really, no it's ok, that's what I want, really,
yes, .... etc.

Eventually she accepted my explanations and the panel arrived and folded nicely.
