Everything You Need to Know About Acrylic Signage

August 10th, 2023

Acrylic signage, also known as plexi-glass or perspex signage, is a popular form of visual communication that involves printing or etching onto acrylic sheets. Acrylic is a transparent, lightweight, and durable plastic material that is often chosen for its sleek appearance and versatility.

Benefits of Acrylic Signage:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Acrylic signage offers a modern and polished look, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings.
  • Versatility: It can be customized in various shapes, sizes, and designs, allowing for creative expression and effective branding.
  • Durability: Acrylic is resistant to weather conditions, UV rays, and fading, ensuring your signage remains vibrant over time.
  • Lightweight: Despite its durability, acrylic is surprisingly lightweight, making installation and transportation easier.
  • Clarity: Acrylic sheets are known for their optical clarity, ensuring that your message is easily visible and legible.
  • Cost-Effective: Acrylic signage provides a cost-effective alternative to glass signage while maintaining a similar upscale appearance.
  • Illumination Options: LED lights can be used for back lighting to enhance visibility and attract attention in the evenings or winter months.

Design Tips for Effective Acrylic Signage:

  • Simplicity: Keep your design clean and straightforward to ensure easy readability from a distance.
  • Contrast: Use contrasting colors to make your message stand out against the acrylic background.
  • Font Choice: Opt for legible fonts that match your brand’s personality and message.
  • Branding: Incorporate your brand elements, such as logos and colors, to enhance brand recognition.
  • Negative Space: Utilize negative space strategically to create a balanced and visually appealing design

Acrylic signs are perfect for :

  • office doors
  • reception area welcome signs
  • wayfinding, showing directions to different areas in buildings
  • house numbers and names
  • meeting rooms
  • wall art
  • information displays
