I order every 2 weeks, Usualy 2 x 8' x 4' 3mm acrylic mirror and 1 8' x 4' sheet of 3mm acrylic cut into A4 size and delivered for £280, Turnaround is usualy 6 days, This is because he uses My Hermes as the courier. Plastic Source is the company, Don't go by Ebay prices, Message them if it's a descent order and ask for their best price.

I did a search for "acrylic sheet Liverpool UK" and "acrylic sheet Manchester UK" and it seemed to pull up a few distributors. Just like here in the US, it can take a bit of sifting through the search results to find a reasonably priced place and weeding out the overpriced places, places that aren't located nearby that fooled the search algorithm, etc.

Just an FYI, hopefully this isn't the case in the UK, but I have found acrylic salespeople in general to be very low IQ and/or about as ethical as a sleazy used car dealer. Confirm everything via email or writing up front.
