Question Where to buy acetate sheets?

I saw this tutorial on making Shaker cards by Gina K -- Technique: The Shaker Card - Part I - YouTube and tried searching for the acetate sheets product she mentioned but couldn't find where to buy it from.

I saw a few earlier threads on SCS for acetate sheets but none that pointed to a good online store to order from.

Any suggestions?

My local Staples sells transparencies. Has anyone used those as a replacement for acetate sheets? Is the thickness good?

I cut up my spellbinder plastic packages and used that. Really heavy. I put my spellbinders in a CD case with magnet strip

I remember reading a previous thread about acetate sheets. Most people just used transparency sheets and liked them. They said get the kind that are "write on" instead of ink jet printer ones, for less static and holds the ink better if you stamp on them.

If you google transparency sheets you can find many brands and different prices on Amazon, Walmart, etc. I'm sure you can also find them at office supply stores like Staples and Office Depot. My experience with the office supply stores is they can be a little more expensive than other sources, but maybe worth it if you have a store close by.

Hey Chaitali, the acetate sheets are quite thick, unlike the transparencies. For a card base you need the thick acetate sheet but if you're using it for something like a window then a transparency is good enough. If it's for making cards you can get it at a couple of places including PTI. Just search for "clear cardstock".

I have Dura-Lar that I got at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. It is available in different thicknesses.
