If you have some scrap laying around that's comparable to what you want, bring it in with you when you purchase.

I made the mistake of "guestimating" the thickness I wanted just by looking at what they had and came away with a full sheet that didn't work well for what I had in mind.

I did not buy the acrylic yet. The home hardware stores are far away from where I live, and apparently they do not deliver. I will take a 3mm sheet.
