Need help finding vendor for unbreakable mirrors. Maybe something made of Plexiglass. Need two approximately 4 x 8 sheets. ANY help is appreciated.

Used to use tons of plexiglass mirrors when they decorated for Christmas, but they would not sell me any of them.

These guys are the best for quality, paper backing thickness, and cutting to order. They aren't always the cheapest.

The only way you will get out cheaply is to get super thin acrylic and back it on plywood, or get clear acrylic and apply mirror film to the back, then plywood. Any way you do it 4x8 will not be cheap.

Call Plaskolite and see if they have a distributor in your area for acrylic mirror. The .080" thickness 4x8 sheet usually runs from 120-150 per sheet. If you want it flat, I definitely suggest bonding it to a good birch ply or MDF. Use a water based contact adhesive, not Liquid Nails so that you have a uniform bond over the entire sheet.
