1. Product Selection
ePlastics.com allows you to select items through the use of a global site search, filters, and various drop-down menus that make finding items simple. As you browse through the items, you will see a button next to each one that says "Buy Now". Selecting that button will bring you in to an Item Detail page with pricing information and a cutting box (for applicable parts).
On the Item Detail page you will be able to select the quantity you would like to purchase, and input any special instructions for cutting and shipping. Read Step 2 for cutting instructions.
2. Cutting Information
If your order requires cutting, read below. If it does not, then skip to step 3.
To input cutting information, select the number of cuts that you would like from the Straight Line Cutting Rates button selection (see image below). Enter all of your cutting instructions and dimensions into the cutting box. Be as detailed as possible, and keep in mind our nominal sizing information while measuring your pieces. The information you enter here is read by an ePlastics® employee, not an automated process, so the more details you include the better.
