FAQ

Are your acrylics cast or extruded?
All of our acrylics are cast acrylics, except for the mirror acrylics (which are extruded by standards).
Do your acrylics come with paper masking?
Yes! ALL of our acrylics come with paper masking on both sides! We also have a Premium Masking option (white masking) instead of the traditional brown paper masking. There is more information on our Premium Masking option in the WAI’s Standards
Are your acrylics laser safe?
Yes! We are proud to only offer laser-safe materials! We have tested each and every one of our acrylics to ensure that it is FREE of PVC. PVC not only omits toxic fumes under thermal processes, it also corrodes your laser system.
What sizes do you carry?
All of our acrylics come in ~11.75" x 19" (Glowforge size) and also ~11.75" x 9.5" (Half size).
3M 300LSE double-sided tape sheets are ~11.75" x 19."
What is your turnaround/processing time?
Our goal is to ship all orders out within 1 to 2 business day after receiving payment. However, please expect up to 3 business days until your order is shipped especially around holidays. Please always allow extra time on your order due to unforeseen circumstances.
Do you ship with UPS or USPS?
We ship with both! If you’re within the 48 contiguous states, you can pick either UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail shipping. If you prefer for us to ship with USPS, please make sure to follow the USPS box counter so you can know how many sheets can fit into the USPS Large Flat Rate box.
All customers outside of the 48 contiguous states will have their orders ship in a USPS Priority Mail Large Flat Rate box.
What is WAI BOX COUNTER?
WAI BOX COUNTER is a smart meter that automatically keeps track of how many sheets are in your cart. Each size and thickness (1/16in, 1/8in, 3/16in, and 1/4in) will be counted accordingly
  • We do ship with both UPS and USPS so please look at the appropriate meter (either UPS or USPS) for your order.
  • Customers within the 48 contiguous states can choose either UPS or USPS for their order, but UPS will be cheaper.
  • Customers outside of the 48 contiguous states can only have their order ship with USPS (for ex: Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands).
  • On the right-hand side of the WAI BOX COUNTER is the UPS Box Size, which will change based on the number, size, thickness of the sheets in your cart. Please see below for different UPS box sizes.
UPS Box Size
  • WAI TOO SMALL (SMALL) — Fits up to 7 sheets of 1/8in ($16.50)
  • WAI LITTLE (MEDIUM) — Fits up to 13 sheets of 1/8in ($18.00)

How long does shipping usually take?
The transit time depends on the destination. Your package might take longer to get to you around the holidays so please plan ahead and allow extra days for your order to be delivered.
On average, our customers within the 48 contiguous states and Hawaii got their packages within 3 business days after they are shipped. Texans got theirs within 1-2 business days while Chamorro (Guam) got theirs in a little over a week.

Yes! A shipping notification email with the tracking will be sent to the email address provided. Please make sure to check your inbox and spam folder for emails from WAI Supplies LLC. If you have an account with us, you can always log in and see the status of your shipment in your account history.
Do you have a storefront that I can shop in person?
We do not have a storefront, and all appointments to look at the samples in person are halted at the moment. We will announce when the appointments are resumed.
Can I pick up my order at your shop?
Yes, you can place an order online and pick it up at our shop. There will be 5 sheets minimum for all pickup orders.

We are required to collect sales tax on all Texas orders, including pickup orders, and ship to address in Texas.
Do you take Texas Resale Certificate? If yes, how do I submit my Texas Resale Certificate?
Yes, we do! You can find the Texas Resale Certificate here.
You’ll need to create an account with us first, then send us a copy of your Texas Resale Certificate to hello@waisupplies.com along with the email and name associated with your account. Please make sure that the date on the form is the same date that you submitted the form. After we have verified your sales tax status with the State, we will let you know if you have been approved. Please note that incomplete forms will be rejected.
After you have been approved, we will not collect sales tax on all your orders as long as your status is active with the State.
Can I email my Texas Resale Certificate after I submit my order?
If you have a Texas Resale Certificate, please make sure to submit it for verification prior to placing your order. Sales tax will not be reversed after the order is placed.
If you submit the Texas Resale Certificate after you submit your order, it will be good for subsequent orders as long as your status is active with the State.
I am at the checkout page and got the following message “YOUR SALES TAX PERMIT IS NOT ACTIVE, PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST!”.  What happened?
When you get the above message, that means your sales tax status is not active with the State. Please check with the State Comptroller’s office regarding your sales tax permit. Once you get that resolved and the status is updated with the State, you can log back into your account and proceed on with your order.
If you would like to place an order without the Texas Resale Certificate, please send an email to hello@waisupplies.com and we will disable the Texas Resale Certificate associated with your account.
Can I change my order after it’s placed?
We’re sorry but once your order is placed, no changes can be made.
Can I cancel my order after it’s placed?
Yes, you can cancel your order as long as it hasn’t been shipped. We will refund you the order’s total minus the processing fee to the original payment method. Order cannot be canceled after it has been shipped.
