can anyone help me source various products please?

Hello

I am currently trying to source anumber of products and wonder if anyone might be able to help me on one or more things. They are:

1. Frosted vinyls in various colours for application to clear perspex
2. Frosted perspex in various colour but in small amounts
3. Clear 5-6mm perspex in small amounts

I want to try to do some raised house signs, but only want to test the market and don't really want to spend £400 on something that might not be viable. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Danny

Most of the suppliers will do small samples of vinyl and Acrylic, try giving people like Europoint, Amari Plastics, Cox Plastics a call.

Amari will sell you a half sheet of perspex...... 5-6mm probably cost about £50ish.... (and cut it into pieces for you)

as for frosted vinyls in various colours, that's a tad more awkward. 3M do tinted frost but it's not cheap. I think KPMF do it too.
