Bespoke Custom Acrylic Products

Global leaders in custom acrylic casting and embedment

Unique colour methods, unobstructed forms and specially developed custom acrylic embedment techniques.

Acrylic is prized for its optical clarity and tactile quality but its true beauty lies in its adaptability and the many fabrication opportunities. Acrylic can be so many things to so many people and that makes it all the more exciting to work with.

We are incredibly proud of the work we create with our clients and love to show them off when we can.  For quick fix inspiration and a wide variety of projects check out our portfolio.

Need Some Guidance?

If you have a project you'd like to get started or you're not sure how to proceed, we can help.

The journey from concept to production

When it comes to your first time creating a physical product that represents you and your company, it can feel somewhat daunting. It is usually a real highlight for your company when it comes to releasing your custom acrylic product, whether it’s a recognition award or a deal toy. With our unique skill set, you can rest assured that we’ll deliver the product of your dreams.

Here at Midton, we have 30 years of experience delivering a variety of projects and work with companies of all backgrounds. This includes product engineers, marketing departments, CEO’s and artists. The approach we use is fluid, meaning that we can start the journey from a simple idea, a theme, a hand-drawn sketch or even full CAD drawings that are ready for manufacturing. Our experienced team is ready to guide you through the acrylic fabrication process at every stage.

The process begins with your input into a design and a budget discussion for your project. One of our skilled 3D product designers will then take this input and create 3 quoted concepts. These custom acrylic designs will then be sent to you in the form of a PDF for you to select your desired option. From this, we can then produce a physical prototype if time allows it, and send it on to you for approval or to make changes before proceeding with production on the final quantity.

Once you have placed an order we take care of everything, including shipping worldwide.

Rapid prototyping

Using our skills & technology to deliver quality prototypes

Rapid prototyping is what we do, its been part of our manufacturing process for over 20 years.
Using our design and production skills and our range of technology we can take your product idea and make a physical prototype within 5 - 10 working days depending on the product type.
Our in-house customer leads and designers can take you through the process and help you deliver a quality prototype. We create a 3D photo rendering of your product idea, once the concept is approved we can create a rapid prototype using our 3d print suite and/or our in-house machine shop with 4 axis-cnc, mill, saw, lathe and assembly.

Small batch manufacturing

The Midton community is home to designers, crafters and innovators. How we design and what processes are combined to create our bespoke products are influenced by our shared expertise and techniques.

By blending the latest 3D Printing technologies and the traditional crafting methods, we can make use of various print mediums. These range from large format digital and screen printing to more modern direct and substrate UV cured. 

Our experienced acrylic casting team can blend, mix and Pantone match a range of strengths and colours of acrylic material to give a unique look that cannot be achieved with other materials. Post-casting machining is often performed through a combination of CNC machining and time-served processes like turret mills and circular saws. We utilise a hand finishing element to all our pieces, using a 2-stage polishing process and assembly when required. Assemblies can range from a simple bonding of 2 pieces to electronic assemblies of LEDs, IC installations and motors to bring your object to life. Lovingly crafted at every stage
