One of the reasons acrylic sheet is so popular is that it is available in stunning colors and the color runs throughout the sheet. After colored acrylic is cut or shaped, its edges can be polished to a high gloss to match the surface of the sheet. We feature standard colors that are opaque, translucent and transparent. Opaque colors allow no light to pass through. Translucent items allow varying amounts of light transmission. Transparent colors allow you to see through their color.
