Acrylic sheets on sale


#1

I know it’s not proofgrade, but I see that BF Plastics is having a sell on Romark-brand acrylic sheets. (http://www.bfplasticsinc.com/news/Garage-Sale.asp?page=1)

It’s all 1/16", some laser, some laser-iffy. Price at $10 for a 2’x4’ sheet is pretty good. Think you have to have an account to order, but it wasn’t too hard to set up.

There’s also a Romark page that talks about laser capabilities of their different lines. (http://www.rowmark.com/MARK/laser_guide/pages/prod.asp)

Thanks for the lead. Those are fantastic prices.

For anyone else interested, their stock is selling out quickly. A good number of the items I selected were already out of stock.


#3

Same here. Still unsure of what shipping costs will be, but I have a pile of 12x24 quarter-sheets on order now.


#4

That’s why I ordered before I posted it.


#5

thanks for the tip.
Creating an account now.


#6

Lol, the guy I talked to said they were SWAMPED today… it’s only gonna get worse, buddy!!


#7

Yes, The lady I spoke with said the same.
I may not get an account before the bins are empty.


#8

I just got a UPS shipping notice, 17.2lbs. No invoice yet…


#9

Invoice received. $33 shipping. Very happy with this haul of 23 sheets of two tone, solid and metallic acrylic sheets for under $100. Should hold me for quite some time.

Thanks again @shollg!

I wonder why They are discontinuing so many of the row mark 2 tone, or if Rowmark is just updating their catalog with new formulas and numbers ?


#11

two big engraving suppliers - BF Plastics and Johnson Plastics. Johnson bought Romark, BF no longer carries. BF now has the Duets line.


#12

Might be mistaken on Johnson Plastics buying Romark, but they seem to be tied tightly to them as PF Plastics now is to Duets.Sort of a Coke/Pepsi thing.


#13

Got mine too: 57 lbs of material, $66 shipping.


#14

Makes sense.


#15

Called to setup my account with them this morning. The gal who answered had a tone in her voice of “it’s another one of these calls, what is going on out there?”.

Very pleasant to talk to, just wondering what brought a sudden influx of accounts for the discontinued material.


#16

Thanks for posting this…I just put in a huge order :grinning:


#17

I could not get the account set up, so I figured I would just let it go.
Today they emailed me, the sale is still on!
Tried one more time to validate the account… VIOLA!

I started with a conservative $200 cart, whittled it down to $51.50 and ordered.

They have a lot. Probably not the most common stuff. No solid black, few white. Lots of two-color stuff. So something like 19 quarter sheets in varying thickness in my custom sample pack.

There’s still time if you want to check it out.


#18

The first day of the sale they laughed every time I asked about a red product.
Red goes real fast!


#19

I have had my box for a few weeks; but here’s what I got.


Comparing prices now, I think it was a great price for these acrylics.

So I just got my shipment yesterday. Anybody have any advice on engrave/cut settings for the 1/16" stuff?
