Anyone know of an online source other than American Frame to get UV plexi / acylic?

When I'm buying framing plexi by itself, I get it directly from the source at acrylite. Here's their framing grade stuff: https://www.acrylite-shop.com/US/us/acr ... vpudi.html

If you happen to need acrylic Optium Museum glazing, the only online source from them I've found is webpictureframes. Don't be intimidated by the basic-ness of the site; I've ordered a kit with Optium from them in the past and their stuff is top notch. https://www.webpictureframes.com/catalo ... .html?sb=1

As said above, Acrylite Shop. Best pricing I've come across and the size limits are well above the framing sites.

Just checked this out - never thought to order from them direct, but after shipping costs it would probably only make sense if buying in bulk. For single sheets or small orders you're probably still better off waiting for a discount or free shipping promotion from framedestination or one of the other custom framing sites

Yea when comparing what I needed I just ended up ordering from American Frame, shipping was like $19 from the Acrylite shop, and I couldn't get anything cut under 12 inches. So since AF currently has a free shipping deal on anything over $125 I just went with that.

Thanks for the input though! :clap:

You're probably right. I'm always framing in groups to save on shipping on all fronts ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As a re-seller I do not understand why they compete with us (family owned business). Including shipping they do not beat us on all sizes and product types especially smaller ones. I have found we appear to have high quality cuts more consistently, we sell the version with a high quality mask that is easier to remove than paper and we have a 4.9 (out of 5) star rating with google customer reviews.

If you really want to save money (nearly 50% over their price) and your frame is 24x28 or smaller then consider UV glass:

If you dont want any reflections and would like lower cost than Optium acrylic consider this:
