Default Acetate

I would like to do some of the reflection type cards and know that you have to stamp on acetate. But where exactly does one go to buy acetate? Is it an office type thing or a craft type thing?

I have used overhead transparencies bought in bulk from places like office depot and such with great success, and cheaper than most craft stores. Hope that helps Lisa

I have used "Transparencies" and they are available in Office Depot, and other office supply stores. And with the cost of petroleum products going up, be braced for sticker shock. The last time I looked they were around $30.00 a box. Perhaps your local office supply will sell them by the sheet.

The best ever acetate I have ever worked with was free. The local copy/printing company (Kinko's) was laminating large posters and had huge stack of thick laminate (nothing laminated - in there, just clear plastic) and they let me take as much as I could carry. It was glorious.

So it pays to keep you eye open for alternative sources.

You could also use the SU Window Sheets. You might find individual sheets of acetate at a fine arts store as well.

I bought mine in a huge roll at Hobby Lobby for $15.00. It was in the fine arts department. It is the size of a large roll of wrapping paper and about 3 times as thick. I'll never use all it.
