Do not leave acrylic outside in severe cold temperatures as this can make it brittle and susceptible to cracking.
Keep protected until ready for fitting – always protect printed surface at all times.
For straight cuts in acrylic, a plastic-scoring blade can be used. With a straightedge as a guide, pull the blade toward you, leaving a score mark. Score the acrylic several more times along the same line, then place the acrylic on the edge of the table and use light, quick pressure to snap the piece in two.
You can also cut acrylic with more traditional blade tools such as a jigsaw, band saw, or table saw. High tooth-count plastic-cutting blades are available for these tools and are recommended. New blades must be used at all times.
