Hey, everyone!
Does anyone know of a source for light blue acrylic for chestbox buttons? The specific purpose is to have a shade of blue that looks okay just by itself, but is transparent/translucent enough that it'll work with a blue or white LED behind it for a TLJ chestbox, too.

Because, really, who doesn't like blinkylights. :)

Inventables has some

McMaster Carr has acrylic too, but has fewer choices.

As for getting it lasered/machined, you might have to consult a local makerspace or job shop.
