Stainless steel sheet pricing from online metal dealers such as OnlineMetals.com, MSCDirect.com, TCIPrecision.com, DiscountSteel.com and MetalsDeptot.com is typically priced to keep the cost of the metal at the lowest market prices. These retailers sell sheets of stainless steel in a variety of sizes, thickness and finish specifications.
Uncut, stock sheets of stainless steel, regardless of thickness or finish, are typically less expensive than custom-cut sheets. As of 2016, all five sheet metal retailers provide customers the option of selecting stock stainless steel sheets ranging in size from 1 foot square to at least 5 feet by 10 feet. Each of these sizes are available as stock size sheets or custom cut with a price increase for the cutting service.
