Anyone know where to get that specific color acrylic from?  I'd like to cut this guy one and send it to him.

Can't be positive, but the blue that we ordered for the RPi event was  McMasterCarr - 85635K421  - http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/118/3569/=kf8x37

Thanks.  I'll probably order some on Monday.  Kind of in the helpful/gift-giving spirit lately...and I need a pi case too.

The light blue, like my case, came from McMaster. 1/8" clear blue, cast acrylic

Shipping flat rate in a sealed envelope shouldnt be much more than about $15. Its not heavy, and is small. Smaller package the better.

Pockybum, if you can cut me two cases, I'll ship the guy one.  $14 ok for the acrylic? (McMaster is $7/sheet, it takes 2 sheets for 2 cases, right?)  I'm kind of wondering if I should sneak the familab logo on there somewhere. =D


*Edit* - Go ahead and put the familab logo on there somewhere.  I got the guys address, he doesn't mind.  I told him to drive the 2 1/2 hours and check out the hackerspace nearest him, and even if it's far away...get involved in their community.

Cool. And I'll just familab one side and raspi logo the other? That way they can put whichever they want on top?

I'm fine with the logo just being thrown onto the side, or tucked away in a corner somewhere.  Probably not taking up a whole panel. :)

Ian had it right. It was made from leftover material I forgot at the lab after a project.
I like colors.

Yeah, if it's the McMaster Carr Translucent light blue I have some. Shoot! I forgot to cut it while I was there tonight. I'll let you know when I get a chance.
