When it comes to working with acrylic plastic sheets, having them cut to size can offer numerous benefits. Whether you’re undertaking a DIY project or need specific dimensions for a professional application, opting for pre-cut acrylic sheets can make your life much easier. But why is that?

Let’s explore why you should consider choosing acrylic sheets cut to size for your next project.


Benefits of plastic sheets pre-cut to size

Getting full-size plastic sheets has its advantages. However, in many cases, ordering pre-cut sheets can save time and effort. Here’s why:

Full sheets require special equipment

One of the primary benefits of opting for plastic sheets cut to size is that you won’t need specialised equipment to handle large, full sheets. Full sheets of acrylic can be challenging to manoeuvre and may require tools such as table saws or laser cutters to achieve precise dimensions.

By selecting pre-cut sheets, you eliminate the need for expensive equipment and reduce the risk of mistakes during the cutting process.

Full sheets can be very heavy

Another consideration when working with acrylic is the weight of full sheet plastic. Acrylic is denser than many other plastics, making the handling and transportation of large sheets difficult.

However, pre-cut acrylic sheets are much more manageable in terms of weight, size, and manoeuvrability. They are cut to fit your needs, so you don’t need to worry about the additional weight. This can be especially advantageous if you need to transport them quickly and efficiently.

Fine-sawn edges

Acrylic sheets cut to size offer the advantage of having fine-sawn edges. When purchasing full sheets, you’ll likely need to cut them yourself, and the resulting edges may not have a clean, polished appearance.

Pre-cut sheets from Plastics Plus on the other hand, are professionally cut, ensuring smooth, precise edges that enhance the overall aesthetics of your project. These clean edges also make it easier to join multiple pieces – from plastic panelling to custom shapes – together seamlessly.


Choosing plastic sheets cut to size can be a cost-effective option. While full sheets may initially appear cheaper per square foot, keep in mind that without the professional and precision equipment we possess at Plastics Plus, you may waste a significant portion of the material when cutting it yourself.

Pre-cut sheets eliminate this waste, as they are already tailored to your bespoke dimensions. By reducing material wastage, you can save money and ensure that you have exactly what you need for your project.
