What Are Acrylic Blanks?

Throughout the pandemic, many people turned to crafting to pass the time. They found real joy in getting to work with their hands and got a sense of accomplishment from their finished product. Crafting can be a passtime or a full blown business, depending on how much time you want to commit. 

Whether you’re just starting out or if you’ve already built your crafting kingdom, one of the most popular and marketable types of crafting right now is using acrylic blanks to make keychains, necklaces, ornaments, and other crafty items. What exactly are acrylic blanks? How can you use them in your crafting repertoire? What kinds of projects can you use them for? Griffin Blanks has all the answers. Here’s everything you need to know about crafting with acrylic blanks.


The Basics of Acrylic Blanks

Before you embark on a new project that involves acrylic blanks you’ll want to know what they're made of, how you can use them and what to look for when purchasing acrylic blanks. Chances are you’ve come into contact with acrylic materials before. Maybe you’ve had acrylic nails put on at the salon prior to a big event or you’ve had a fish tank that looks like glass, but is actually made of acrylic. Acrylic is more durable than glass while still providing transparency. These characteristics make acrylic very desirable depending on the project at hand. 

In the crafting world, acrylic blanks are blank pieces of acrylic that come in various shapes and sizes that you’re able to customize. At Griffin Blanks, you can put your own flare on a variety of blanks that we keep in stock. Whether you’re looking to make stocking stuffers or small gifts for grab bags, acrylic blanks are versatile and affordable. You can either find a pre-cut acrylic blank shape that speaks to you and your crafting style, or you can purchase a custom blank, send it to us here at Griffin Blanks and have our professional team cut or engrave it into the design of your choice. The world is your oyster with acrylic blanks.
