What we do

We work exclusively with acrylic sheeting, commonly known as Plexiglas, Lucite or Perspex and other acrylic products including rods and tubing. We are able to cut, drill, polish, route, bend and cement pieces as needed to help bring your design from paper into reality. In addition to our fabrication services, we also offer laser cutting and engraving services for acrylic sheets with our in-house laser machines.

If you only need standard plastic materials, we carry acrylic sheets in a wide variety of standard colors cut to size, as well as polycarbonate, styrene, PETG, vinyl, and decorative films.
