Excellent inexpensive non-glare acrylic
from Valley Forge, PA
Comments about Clear Acrylic Sheets For Framing:
We used this for framing with oil pastels, which can't actually be allowed to touch the surface, so I was a bit concerned that distance between the panel and the painting would be a problem with non-glare. So, no, it's not as clear as glass would be, but with a very dark painting behind glass we were having a tremendous problem with reflections, and this takes care of that. Note that at .06", it's half the thickness of normal 1/8 plexi or glass, and is considerably more floppy, which made getting the frame assembled was just a bit more challenging than normal. Also note that this is MUCH LESS STATIC-Y than normal plexi, and that's a huge plus.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worked great for me
from New York City
I purchased this for to experiment with it, making image transfer and collage on it. It looks great, clean, the anti-glare aspect to it is really awesome. Definitely a great buy for whatever it is you want.

This product works great for "flicking" with markers. I wouldn't suggest it for a picture frame acrylic panel because it is sort of "frosty". # sweepstakes
I would buy this again
from McLean, NY
I have looked in all craft stores for these items and no one sells them. Then I found Blick and they have everything I needed to make a frame. I do some cross stitching and the material is too thick for a regular frame and these frames work perfect. Thank you Blick!!
Very, nice excellent packing
By art tee
I would put 4.5 stars if I could. Price is great, excellent packing. My first panel had this air bubble and shadow defect.Blick had the replacement sent on 3 day delivery at no additional cost. Can't blame them for the above defect which was from the manufacturer. It wasn't easily visible until the protective layer was removed. Due to the excellent packing both panels were undamaged from shipping several thousand miles.
Very Nice Glazing Option
By Tally Joyce
from Tallahassee, FL
I was really delighted with how easy this product was to use in framing my watercolors. You need to be sure you are working on a flat, uncluttered surface, and that you stay focused when handling the acrylic panel. You want to be sure you don't install it backwards. Really, it is very simple, and the results are quite professional and pleasing to the eye. I am very happy with the results and intend on ordering more of these.
Good quality but not for all applications
from Seattle, WA
Yes, these have that annoying "no-glare" finish. I needed to replace glass with plexi in a framed piece for a gallery show that required it. I thought it would work for my framing job but I ended up going to my local framer and getting them to cut me a piece of clear acrylic instead, for a comparable price. I think this stuff works ok for "household" framing but to me it doesn't look professional enough to use for shows. Maybe would be good for bold colorful work but for fine-lined etching it obscures too much for my taste. That being said, if you are ok with the matte finish these are good quality. They come with film on both sides and it's easy to peel and pop onto your picture with no dust, scratches, etc.

Nice product, but didn't meet my needs

The acrylic sheets were not thick enough for my project but I will use them for something else I'm sure.
Excellent quality and exciting value!

The acrylic sheets fit perfectly in the frames I choose. The acrylic sheets weren't damaged and arrived exactly in the condition I expected them to be.
