How are you guys cutting off the shape you want? Can you sand it down? If you sand it wont it look scratched up? Thanks

talks about making them
Last page of the pdf talks about finishing the edges
Any of the standard lure component websites will have lips, but odds are they won't have one that is just what you want.

Try sign shops they discard small pieces all the time just make sure it,s lexan(polycarbonate) and not plexiglass as plexiglass will break much easier.They,ll have different thicknesses as well depending on the size of the sign.
