Most of the sheets are a crazily patterned mix of colours from these different materials. Not all the products will be to everyone’s taste, the mobile phone sheeting being especially loud. But they can produce sheeting to match your own colour schemes by using off cuts of single coloured industrial plastic. They can blend two colours in any ratio. For the minimalists amongst you, I would recommend the yoghurt pots, which create a plain white sheet. For the collectors and hoarders amongst you Smile Plastics are now also able to produce custom sheeting by embedding objects in a soft and squishy transparent material. Suggested things are old photos, negatives, letters, postage stamps, feathers – if you can supply it they can make it!
‘The recycled plastic boards combine a strong environmental message with an evocative and distinct aesthetic appeal, linked to the processing of plastics waste’
