Hi, I'd say if you leave a 1/8" margin around the 12x24" cutting area
of the laser, you should be safe.  Others may have experimented w/
tighter tolerances?

As for acrylic, Canus Plastics (http://www.canusplastics.com/) is a
good source, as they have a good selection and will cut the pieces for
you while only charging for the material itself.
