The Game Crafter now makes Custom Acrylic Dice!

The Game Crafter - Custom Etched Acrylic Dice are now available at The Game Crafter!

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce the release of Custom Acrylic Dice! Just like with our custom wood dice you can upload any pattern you want and we’ll etch them into the dice. But unlike the wood dice we’ll ink these dice for you as well. It’s just shy of $9 to do 1 die, but if you’re doing a set then that price drops to less than $5 per die. They come in the 4 colors shown in the photo.
