What Are Acrylic Signs?

Acrylic is a plastic material. Acrylic signs are made from plastic sheets that can be cut and heat-molded into custom shapes to suit any sign needs. There are several types of acrylic signs, including:   

Frosted Acrylic Signs 

Imagine a glass sheet with a thin layer of frost over it. That’s what a frosted acrylic sign can look like. The texture obscures the view through the sign and adds visual interest, but it doesn’t block natural light, and it is more subtle than a pigment.

Clear Acrylic Signs 

Also known as plexiglass signs, these signs are clear like glass, except that they are easier to shape and more durable. It is useful to have some elements of a sign be made from clear acrylic while others have color or texture.

Mirror Acrylic Signs

This material reflects light the way that a mirror does. It’s useful for many interesting designs.  

While those are interesting kinds of acrylic signs, the most common is simply dyed a vibrant color. All colors are available, including the unique brand colors you need to promote your business. We can help you combine multiple kinds of acrylic to create a stunning sign that will best send the message that you need to communicate.

Printing and Lighting Considerations for Acrylic Office Signage

Custom acrylic signs can be printed on the back or the front of the material. Front printing is standard and less expensive, but it doesn’t have the same depth of feeling that printing on the back does. Back-printing, or second surface printing, also has the advantage of being a bit more durable than the standard print option. It also has a shine that you don’t get from standard printing.

Depending on your intended use for the sign, its placement, and the nearby lighting, one kind of sign printing may look much better than another. We can help you make the right decision for your unique circumstances.

Uses for Acrylic Signs

These business signs are highly versatile and used for a very wide variety of communication and business needs. Acrylic wall signs can be used outdoors to promote your business, reveal the address, or communicate other important information. However, indoor use is more common for these signs. There are acrylic office signs you might find in lobbies or on doors.
