I have found that the 'clear acrylic' from Home superstores, and the chain places like 'Tap' are the cheap Acrylic with crystalline styrene added. This is the very brittle materials found in some kitchen lighting panels. Be cautious of the cheap clear sheet, cuz it will break when you pick it up by the edge. Get a name brand or quality sheet with paper masking. The other stuff is designed for picture framing and not for 'working'.

I've used Laird Plastics before. Nice folks good selection but they have a $150 minimum (the last time I used was a couple years ago).
