Piece   1PC = 1PC
Dozen  1D = 12 PCs
Gross   1G = 144PCs

Because the acrylic has the character of good transmittance, so after the plating, the whole button could be much more shining.

At the same time, because of its high plasticity, the shapes of acrylic button can be variety. Some companies can make the acrylic buttons according to customers’ requirements.

  Because the hardness of acrylic is equivalent to the aluminum, so in the daily lives, it should be paid attention on the scratch on the surface of acrylic buttons. If it is scratched, you can polish it to restore the glossy surface.
