What sets us apart from our competitors is the grade of acrylic we produce.  Mixing chemistry with artistry, our skilled acrylic casting technicians carefully create each chemical formula.

Bring an extra dimension to your project by introducing laser etching into your design. The high heat component changes the surface of the material, introducing a new element while enhancing the contrast.

Sustainability is something we are incredibly passionate about. Over the years, we explored how we could reduce the amount of plastic we used during the packaging process, from the bubble wrap to the parcel tape. We invested in a machine which regular cardboard sheets into outer carton packaging, eliminating bubble wrap. We use recyclable paper tape to seal your project on it’s journey to you. One of the incredible properties of this style of tape is it is stronger so we use less of it, making it go further. 

Leave the logistics to us. Using sustainable packaging, we finalise the delivery logistics, ensuring your project arrives safely and on time.  With a dedicated courier service, you can trust that your project will be delivered through safe hands.
