Description

acrylic dice iceAcrylic, or poly(methyl methacrylate), was invented in 1928 and first marketed in 1933 as safety glass thanks to its shatter resistant nature. Since its inception Methacrylate has been synthesized in about a dozen different methods leading to twice that many trademarked names for poly(methyl methacrylate). Names like Lucite, Plexiglass, ACRYLITE, and Perspex are all essentially the exact same thing with some very minor differences due in part to how the methacrylate was produced. The PMMA we use in crafting our Alchemist’s Dice is manufactured by Lucite.

Acrylic’s are used in many applications from aquariums, to helmet visors, and even bulletproof body panels for armored vehicle. It’s also used for aircraft canopies and in making ballistic glass. Depending on the application, acrylic is either produced in a casting process or it is extruded, as is the case with the acrylic beads used in injection molding. We chose cast acrylic rod as our base material over, the much less expensive, extruded acrylic as the casting process gives us a significantly increased optical clarity.

alchemist dice compairsonEach of our Acrylic dice are individually machined and the polished in 5 stages to bring back the optimal clarity and luster inherent to cast acrylic. This process is labor intensive but as you can see in the image to the right, it produces far superior results to injection molded acrylic dice.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer use laser cut acrylic boxes, all of our dice have been upgraded to include our standard box as chosen above..

  • Customize Your Dice


    After having made your selection above, please choose the die/dice that you would like to have customize. For instance, if ordering a Full Polyhedral Set, you may have the entire set customized, just the d20, or only the six sided dice. Please note this option will set the price for Engraving options and Embellishments. 

    Engraving Options


    We offer 2 styles of engraving. Our standard engraving style burns the outline of the number on each face. This outline style of engraving works well with our Infill technique of Embellishment, and is great for adding a splash of cost effective color to your chosen dice. The second style of engraving we offer is a Raster Engraving style. This process burns solid numbers into each face of the dice and works very well with our Inlay techniques of Embellishment, which allows us to make use of real metal alloys and crush semiprecious stones.

  1. Matt Anderson

    How do I get these, chuck? I need them…

  2. Charlie Brumfield

    soon matt. very soon. the first run will be added to the site as soon as the demo video is through uploading

    • Matt Anderson

      Sold! Can’t believe the first runs are out already. I was waiting for most of the night to see them go up. =/ Any estimate on when second runs will be shipped? No rush cause I know you guys are swamped with kickstarter, as I also have a set I’m waiting on there. I figure no matter what you’re working on you’ll be getting closer to at least one set of my dice. 😀

  3. Pirate Jarnes

    Will these standard dice have numbers or pips?

  4. Ted Tufts

    Would I be able to order D20’s in a spindown numbering format?

  5. Dave Kingshott

    Im wanting to get 2 sets of these to upgrade my Imperial assault game. They have simple (yet custom) faces. Would there be an upcharge to have them laser engraved with the face design (supplied by me)? What about discounts on ordering multiple sets? I would need 4 each of 6 different colors.

  6. Steven

    Will you guys be at GenCon again this year? I bought a wooden (druid) set last year, but the look of these is just outstanding.

    These are wonderfully beautiful dice with fine, sharp edges and high quality material. They have numbers on them. They arrived and they are actually much less blue than they appear in this image, seemingly colorless in some lighting. Still a good product. I will be purchasing more of these sets. (Also, customer service did not let me down!)
