As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade.Please review our full return and shipping policy here.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.
How to Use a Measuring Tape
Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.
Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.
Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook
The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).
Acrylics have outstanding resistance to long-term exposure to sunlight and weathering. Acrylic has excellent optical properties and is more resistant to impact than glass. In addition, acrylic has low water absorption, good electrical resistivity, and fair tensile strength. Applications are infinite, including art installations, outdoor signs, glazing, aircraft canopies, skylights, automotive taillights, dials, buttons, lighting applications, knobs, and machine covers.

I learned that I could just note on the order what size I wanted it cut to. I buy all my plastics here.
like some others have indicated their customer service is helpful they have a smart friendly staff.
I thought it was very good quality and it shipped fast.
The very helpful folks at Interstate made purchasing easy. We'll be back
fast shipping, very clean rod, good material
Really appreciate all the help. Staff seemed busy but was still attentive to our questions on plexiglass.
great job guys
This should be cut to size online! We finally got them to cut it when we called in, but it would be easier to do online. All said and done though we got the product and it was well cut and shipped. Came on time so no real complaints.
honest product at an honest price and cut to specification
We will not order from anyone else. We have had nothing but excellent service and great products from IP. Reliable and professional.
I had been using cast for a long time from a different supplier, unaware that extruded would work for me just as well. Interstate guided me to the right product, and in the long run saved me a ton of money.
Great price, not always in stock though
Great customer service! I was able to order all of my material and received it in a timely manner. We will definitely recommend Interstate Plastics to family and friends.
CALL BEFORE ORDERING! There are manufacturers minimums; if you can afford it, ask for cast! Interstate Plastics customer service was great in working with me on this issue and will definitely use them for future projects.
