Electroluminescent (EL) Panel Holes

Hi,
New to this EL Panel, is it possible to drill holes in there and it will still work every where else ?

Yes. Although a standard twist-drill in will tend to grab and make a fairly ragged hole. If there is any tearing around the edges it could cause shorts between the layers.

Punching or cutting would be a better method for making holes in the panel.
