Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a few acrylic (or other archival) transparent display cases for a few objects. Varying sizes between 5"long/tall and 20" long/tall.


Any recommendations on where to get these? Try to not break the bank too. Thanks!

This is a company that is local but they have a few offices in other states. They have a multitude of acrylic products that we utilize in the museum. They can also special build items.. Click on the online catalog and acrylics is in the top upper left..

Check Michaels (the craft store).  Just to rule out ready made baseball / basketball display boxes, etc.   They also carry a variety of different sized shadow boxes that may (or may not) meet your needs.    


I used a Basketball one for a Bell Crown hat.  I got some crushed red material, put it over a Tupperware tub, and set the cap on it.   Looks sharp.
