Perspex cases for footballs etc... anyone ?

Post by Bagpuss » Tue 19 Jun, 2018 9:20 pm

Hi, I do a lot of framed football shirts, boxing gloves etc. but when anyone asks for a perspex box for a football or baseball cap I suggest they buy one on Amazon. Can anyone suggest a manufacturer who you buy perspex boxes from ? not picture framing suppliers, a bit too expensive ....

Thanks in advance ,

Depending upon sizes, Morplan may be worth checking out. They have a limited range of sizes and their range is primarily for retail sales and display, but I would expect their prices to be quite cheap. I've never bought any perspex boxes from them, so I cannot comment on their quality, or durability.

I've used the guys at dreamkeepers in the past & found their stuff very good, they offer trade discount too.

Same here, we used Dreamkeepers when we offered them, decent trade discount, good product.
Whilst on the subject did anybody manage to find a supplier for the acrylic domes at a reasonable cost?, the ones from Simon's are too expensive and half of them are usually scratched.
