Local Plastics/Acrylic supplier

Hi All,

I am looking for somewhere local I can buy some 1/2" thick black acrylic sheet around 12"x12". I am not really in a position to commit to a full 48 x 96 sheet yet!

Any recommendations?


Check with Allied Plastics. They are next door. There is also Regal, Interstate, and Laird Plastics

Thanks Joe!!

Have you tried Regal Plastics on Metric Blvd? They have an off-cuts bin that you can rummage through, when you ask nicely.

Peace, Wolf

I did find a link to them here after I posted and before I heard form Joe. They did get back to me super fast but couldn’t do anything smaller than 48x96" in 1/2 black opaque. I might go rummaging though… I dont need much initially.

Regal plastics no longer maintains a cutoffs bin… That resource is now gone.

Well damn.


It’s not local, but I’ve been ordering from estreetplastics.com a lot in the past month and they ship surprisingly fast (like Amazon fast at the cheapest shipping level). I imagine I’ll be ordering more from them at some point in the coming month, so if you still need it when I do I’m happy to tack it on to my next order to help save on the shipping cost. Black Plexiglass Acrylic Sheets - Pre-Cut and Cut-to-Size

coincidently i ended up ordering form them - very fast and looks to be a good product!

Yes, I’ve been super happy with everything I’ve gotten from them! Glad you were able to get what you needed!

Worked really well! I picked up an 84T 10" blade to make sure I could cut it without chipping.


Another online resource: https://www.delviesplastics.com

Might be a touch more expensive than http://estreetplastics.com/ mentioned above, but they do have a wider variety of color choices.

While we’re discussing, has anyone ever come across 1/16" colored acrylic? So far I’ve only found clear in 1/16".

Not sure I’ve seen it in color. However, I’m about to head to the shop and gonna run by allied plastics and laird plastics to rummage through scrap cut-offs that Travis said they would donate and I can keep an eye out. any particular color?

Can you keep an eye out for a 1/2 thick piece, about 12in x 12in. No particular specs required, just something plastic. Hopefully something opaque

So I, unfortunately, walked away empty-handed. Laird Plastics said they wouldn’t have any recyclable material until next week to check back in. Not sure who @TravisGood talked to at allied plastics about getting some pieces from them, but they informed me that they don’t have any type of scrap on-site.

Glossy opaque black is what I was looking for in 1/16". Still planning to try what I’m aiming for with the 1/16" clear I got, but have a feeling it will end up looking a little weird.

Hmmm, unfortunate. When I’m back in Austin I’ll revisit this. I know they have pick-up cycles, times when they have more inventory and times when they have less. Regardless, that’s not the kind of response you received, I gather.

Actually, I just checked my original post where it says to ask for Hector or Tina.

I was having trouble finding 1/2" in opaque white but found Falken designs. They have good selection that are cheap but seem to hit you on shipping.

Also depending how much 1/2" opaque black you need I potentially have some off-cuts??
