I noticed on my sample that the wood color is significantly lighter on the back (with the adhesive covering removed) compared to the front - even in areas where there was no engraving nearby. Is this usual?

As the veneers are real wood there will be some natural variation. We try to source veneers that are as close as possible on both sides but inevitably there will be some differences.
