These clear acrylic sheets are a safe and inexpensive way to teach the principles of printmaking in the classroom or as a great alternative to fragile glass in picture framing.
The acrylic sheets are pre-cut into standard frame sizes and have a non-glare finish on one side. Use them with monotype inks, acrylic paints, or other media to create printable images. The 18-gauge sheets are approximately .06".

Very Nice Glazing Option
By Tally Joyce
from Tallahassee, FL
Comments about Clear Acrylic Sheets For Framing:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

Great replacements for frames!

We have 60 frames around our school that needed replacement plexi glass. This was an easier and affordable alternative to getting plexi sheets cut at the hardware store.
Nice Sheets for Framing
from Burtonsville, Maryland
I always frame my own work. I was purchasing the acrylic sheets at another art supply and had a coupon at Dick Blick so I thought I'd try these. So glad I did! These are so much more substantial then those I purchased elsewhere. Very pleased! Will only buy these.

The description of this product is CLEAR Acrylic when in fact it has a matt finish that you cant see through. Anther false description is that it states that the product works as a good glass replacement. If you cant see through it how is it a good glass replacement?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback. As stated, these sheets do have a non-glare finish on one side. However, we understand if that is not your preference, and one of our Customer Care Representatives will be in touch with you regarding a return or exchange.

We used these for drypoint prints and it worked well. They were a little thinker than what I needed but the projects went well.

RELIABLE AND STURDY PRODUCT
from NASHVILLE, TN
THESE ACRYLIC SHEETS ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE THE REPEATED USE AND ABUSE OF MULTI-MEDIA MONOTYPE PRINTING IN A BUSY ART CLASS. THEY CLEAN UP EASILY WHETHER IT IS FROM USING OIL OR WATER BASE INKS, AND HEAVY PEN WORK CLEANS OFF WITH A SWIPE OF ALCOHOL.
