Why Choose An Acrylic Sign?

Using acrylic is an excellent choice for creating eye-catching signage with near limitless custom colour choices. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, acrylic signs are lightweight and durable. Cut vinyl and/or printed vinyl is applied to the acrylic; increasing the number of ways a sign can be customized. Acrylic is very cost effective, especially when compared to etched glass.

Acrylic Sign Applications

Acrylic can be used to meet a wide variety of signage needs. Among these are:

  • Point-of-purchase products
  • Menu boards
  • Tradeshow exhibits
  • Retail signs
  • Restaurants signs
  • Nameplates and name badges
  • Directional and informational signs
  • Showroom signs
  • Office building signs 

The Lifespan of Custom Acrylic Signs

Since Acrylic is a tough, durable product it can last for many years. Although they have a glass-like appearance, they are quite rigid. In most cases, acrylic signs are lightweight and easy to transport from one location to another. This is a real plus for a business that is rapidly growing and finds its workspace needs changing. Longevity depends on the use, whether indoors or outdoors, and the care given. Most acrylic signs should last a minimum of 5 years.

Customizing Acrylic Signs

When designed by professionals, customized acrylic signs can bring a degree of sophisticated elegance to your business. Acrylic is malleable, enabling designers to create various shapes, including your logo and company name. The use of CO2 lasers and a CNC router on acrylic signs allow for very detailed shapes and cuts.

Acrylic signs have an opaque or translucent background on which customize graphics are added. The opaque background acts as a perfect foil for the bright, glossy colours of the message and logo. The translucent background is typically used for illuminated signs with translucent graphics.  Acrylic can be formed into near limitless possibilities depending on the customer’s requirements.

Simply bring us your requirements and we will assist you in meeting your business or organizational needs.

Custom Acrylic Signs Installation

Acrylic signs need to be handled with care, as they can scratch easily and can shatter or chip upon impact. Installation can be accomplished in a number of different ways, including mounting with screws, using a blind fastener system, pins, double sided tape, and more. Our acrylic signs can be created with pre-drilled holes for ease of installation, if requested. In addition, our installation service team is happy to ensure your signs look the way that you intend them to do.
