    i think if you order 100 pieces you can get $20-$30 per piece, one piece order only will be very costly ...

    there's an acrylic shop behind Sagacity on 2nd level of Bras Basah Complex, i've seen them make acrylic letter boxes before, would probably cost less than $450, and look nicer, but not sure about durability ... if they do bolt/nut joints instead of glue joints can actually be quite durable
