Thank you for coming to shop with me and supporting my small business! It means so much to me that you are here.
PRODUCTS: (sizing, thickness, and color) All acrylic material dimensions are provided in the product description and are approximate. Due to saw blade and/or laser kerf when cutting the material down to size, dimensions are approximate and not guaranteed. For example, most products are listed as they are cut (~12" x 19.2") but may be closer to ~11.75" x 19".
All cast acrylic is likely to have variances in shade (although they are the same color code) as well as thickness due to the casting process. The typical thickness tolerance in cast acrylic can be as great as +/- 30%, whereas the extruded acrylic (currently all mirror options and transparent pink, purple, mint, and teal) is much more consistent in terms of thickness with only +/- 10%.
INVENTORY: I update my inventory frequently. So if something says out of stock in your cart, please check back as inventory is updated throughout the week.
SHIPPING: Please choose the appropriate number of flat-rate shipping boxes. Allow 1-2 business days for processing. I currently ship via USPS and UPS at my discretion, but if you have a preference please type it in the note section in the *Cart* page and I will do my best to accommodate your request *it is not guaranteed*. Speed, quality, accuracy, and superior customer service is what we always strive for.
Due to COVID & high demand please order early, extra, and often to avoid an emergency situation as we do not offer expedited shipping. All orders are processed in the order in which they are received. You will receive a tracking number with your shipping confirmation e-mail. ONCE AN ORDER IS PROCESSED IT CANNOT BE ALTERED. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
BE SURE YOU ENTERED THE CORRECT EMAIL AND SHIPPING ADDRESS.
Mirror Acrylic Info
ARE THERE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR MIRROR ACRYLIC?
All of the settings I use with my Glowforge Pro are listed with the product descriptions.
ALWAYS DO A 1" CIRCLE/SQUARE TEST BEFORE STARTING YOUR PROJECT!
1. For the cleanest results, remove the poly film masking and paper mask both sides.
2. Create your design then “mirror” your artwork.
3. Load material in mirror side down on laser bed & the backside facing up towards the laser head.
4. Select appropriate settings for your laser (I have a GF Pro and use medium red or blue for all of my mirror).
5. Hit that magic button and let ‘er rip!! *PS all mirror is extruded and therefore will have a much stronger smell than the clear/colored cast acrylic
Note #1: For adhesives, you can use e6000, Loctite Go2, 3M double-sided adhesive sheets, Super 77 spray, etc. **Never use WeldOn on mirror acrylic because it will melt it.
Note #2: After paper masking the backing, DO NOT try to peel up the paper masking from the edges to "check it" because those are raw blade-cut edges and it will peel away the gray backing. The gray backing is what allows the acrylic to be mirrored so you don’t want that coming off. After the cut is complete, THEN you can carefully remove the paper masking from the backside. VOILA!
Note #3: Iridescent acrylic (now discontinued) has a thin plastic protector and this is NOT masking. Be sure to remove this protector from both sides and paper mask both sides. Treat the one side that has the iridescent film on it as the backing when following steps #2 and #3
Note #4: Be sure to test all of your material FIRST! I suggest to run a 1” test square or even a mini version of your project prior to diving into the whole thing. Be mindful that intricate details may not work well when cutting with mirror acrylic.
Lastly, enjoy your beautiful creation.
