Cnc Cutting Plexiglass Templates

I have a friend who has offered to CNC cut all of my templates, but I have to draw up some layouts in CAD so that he can do it reasonably efficiently.

I'm trying to visualize the best way of holding the material while being able to cut out complete shapes (body shapes, etc.)

Would you mount the plexiglass against a backing board first perhaps? Any of you guys ever done something like this?

I think most plexi templates are made with a Laser where you do not have to hold the material. That said use double sided tape.
