Plasticard ( Styrene Sheet )

This widley used modelling plastic, is available in many sheet sizes.

The full sheet size ( from most manufacturers ) is 1372mm x 660mm

Common retail sizes ( cut from the larger sheet ) are:

A4+  225mm x 330mm ( A4 paper size is 210 x 297 ) thats why it's A4+

A3+ 330mm x 450mm ( A3 paper size is 297 x 420 )

A2+ 450mm x 660mm ( A2 paper size is 420 x 594 )

If you needed the larger sheetr size, just ask for it. The carriage would be more due to it's size and packaging requirements.


Textured or Embossed Plasticard

Due to the manufacturing process, vacuum forming, these sheets tend to be smaller than the sizes shown above

normally approx 195mm x 265mm ( 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches )

vacuum formed from the A4+ size then trimmed to remove the deformed edge area.

Manufacturers with larger machines can produce a whole selection of sizes, some times even offering custom service for bespoke designs.
