I know where I can get acetate by the boatloads....but I am having trouble finding it by the small qty. If they have it a michael's what section do you think I shoudl look? Or would it be called something else? Is it the same as transparency sheets or different?

I need to try to make some choc. cigs, but I don't to buy the 1000 sheets until I actually get the order....cheap I know, but I am really trying to buy only what I need....seems I have been spending all my profit on stuff!

Thanks a bunch,

JUlia

At Michael's look in the art supply section where they have rolls of it for a reasonable price--there are different thicknesses in mils.

I think mylar is a different compound, but yes if not the same they are very close. I don't know if mylar would be food safe though.

Eons, and eons ago. They used to design car parts on mylar full size. Design rooms would have to be huge due to these mile long sheets. You would waste more time rolling, and unrolling mylar just to look at different areas of the parts you were trying to make. LOLOL

I buy my acetate sheets (I call them overhead transparencies - must be the teacher in me!) at Staples. It's a business supply store, but I'm not sure if it's only Canadian?? I can buy them there in packs of 5 sheets and up from there.
