Required DIY coasters:

The basis for your mirror PLEXIGLAS® coasters

We use PLEXIGLAS® mirrors with a thickness of 3 mm to manufacture the coasters. The PLEXIGLAS® sheet we use is silver and has a mirror effect. Of course, you can also choose a different color. In our webshop you will find a wide variety of colors, from fluorescent green to opal red.

Step 1: Order a PLEXIGLAS® sheet made to measure

Determine how many coasters you want to make and order the PLEXIGLAS® sheets you want. We would be happy to cut the coasters to measure for you free of charge. In this blog, the coasters have a size of 10 x 10 cm.

Step 2: Remove the sharp edges

You can skip this step if you don't want rounded edges. Use a piece of 360 grit sandpaper to remove the sharp edges from your coasters. Do this with all of the coasters until you are happy with the result. Your coasters are now ready to use!
