Buy Shrinky Dink Paper - Custom Plastic Art

Updated on December 31, 2011

Being a child of the 80's, I was no stranger to Shrinky Dinks. Shrinky Dink art were made with this sheet of plastic paper that came with the popular cartoon characters, flower art, and other cool images that could be colored and then cut out.

The magic and appeal of Shrinky Dinks art is once your image or artwork was cut out and ready, it could be stuck in the oven or on a cookie sheet and would shrink right before your eyes into small tough plastic little plates. You could go plain and buy Shrinky dink paper which was awesome because you could create shrinky dink art on it with colored pencils, paints, and markers. It was easy to create art that would look greatly detailed.

Where To Buy Shrinky Dink Paper

When we were kids, Shrinky Dinks came as packaged kits. Everything you needed was included and you could get either pages to color in, or precolored images of cartoons that just needed to be cut out.

Unfortunetly, the kits that we used to use are not available anymore but occasionally you can find a kit with some premade artwork in. Most Shrinky Dink Paper is sold blank so that you can create whatever you want. If you are planning to print from your computer you can only use Shrinky Dink paper that is made for ink jet printers.

You can find Shrinky Dink Paper in some craft stores. Call ahead to check for sure that they carry it. Or you can buy from Amazon. Some available items are picture and available for purchase on the right.
