We are perhaps the
only company that offers fully assembled display
cases. Since it is made in-house, we are able
to offer the best
cases at the
lowest market prices.
The acrylic is cell
cast which is 10 times stronger than glass but half
the weight. Cell cast acrylic is the highest
quality acrylic, crystal clear clarity and scratch
Since 2006, we no longer use
glass for display cases as glass must be either very
thin (look cheap) or very heavy.
Glass panels also need a wooden frame to support
them. Also glass cases must be shipped unassembled
and assembling them is somewhat difficult.
Starting in May, 2017, we only make display cases according
to our pre-made bases. Once a particular base size
out, we need a couple weeks to restock it (we make
about half a dozen at a time), and thus the display case
you order will have to wait. So please order only
when you don't see "sold out",
unless you are willing to pay now and wait for a couple
