I believe it'* laser etched from the inside. Turret Lasers are aim in unison within the acrylic. A single beam won't do anything. But when several are pinpointed it burns/etches a design within it.

It'* becoming very fine tuned and in the near future will replace alot of delicate surgeries and zap cancer routinely.

Do a google image search for 3D Laser etched signs.

Edge lit signs comes up with a good bit of hits, I don't know if that is the real term for it though.
