Although you might not realize it, you probably see acrylic signs every day. Acrylic signs are the large, partly transparent signs you see in doctor’s offices, many other types of offices, and in the lobbies of buildings. In general, acrylic signs are used because they are less expensive than using glass, and because they are far more durable. If you are looking for a sign for any type of business or organization, acrylic signs are one of your best options.
What Is Acrylic?
From far away it may look like glass, but acrylic is actually a lightweight and durable plastic. What some people refer to as Plexiglas is actually made out of acrylic, and Plexiglas is a brand of acrylic products. Because acrylic is a very durable plastic material, it is very easy to maintain and can be used indoors or outdoors. The only part that is prone to damage is the printed lettering and color. Depending on how it’s printed, it can fade due to prolonged exposure to the sun. Acrylic signs can also be scratched. It’s best to print the colors and letters on the backside of the acrylic to protect it, and remember to keep sharp objects away from the sign to prevent scratching.
Why Get An Acrylic Sign?
One of the best things about acrylic signs is that they are very versatile and customizable. Though acrylic is usually transparent, companies can print, paint, or use vinyl to attach colors, letters, and even high-quality images to acrylic signs. Typically, acrylics signs are produced as large rectangular signs and mounted onto walls by their corners, but they can also be cut into any other shape you can imagine. This gives businesses complete control over what type of sign they want and what they want it to look like, and this all comes at a very affordable price.
