Acrylic Sign Printing

Acrylic signs are clear gloss vinyl prints mounted on plexiglass/acrylic material, backed by usually white vinyl to more vivid representation of the sign. A one inch standoff hardware is also included to give 3D dimensionality to the sign and separate it from the wall beneath.

What are the 5 significant benefits of acrylic signs over conventional signs?

Acrylic signs and conventional signs (such as wooden, metal, or plastic) have various differences in materials, durability, aesthetics, and other factors. Here are five significant differences between acrylic signs and conventional signs:

  • Material: Acrylic signs are made from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a lightweight plastic roughly 50% lighter than glass and has a transparency rate of 92%. Conventional signs, on the other hand, can be made from materials such as wood, metal (e.g., aluminum, steel), or other plastics, with unique properties, weight, and transparency levels.
  • Durability: Acrylic signs have a high resistance to weather conditions, with a temperature range of -40°F to 180°F (-40°C to 82°C), making them suitable for various climates. Compared to wood or thin plastic signs, they don't easily warp, rot, or fade. Metal signs, particularly aluminum or stainless steel, can be equally or even more durable, with aluminum having a lifespan of up to 15-20 years and stainless steel lasting for decades with proper maintenance.
  • Aesthetics: Acrylic signs offer a modern and polished appearance, featuring a high-gloss finish up to 30 times more impact-resistant than glass. They can be transparent or translucent, allowing for unique design possibilities. Conventional wooden signs have a more traditional or rustic appearance, while metal signs can have a sleek or industrial look, depending on the finish and design.
  • Customization: Acrylic signs can be customized with various methods, such as engraving or printing, and unique lighting options, like backlighting or edge lighting, consume around 70-80% less energy than traditional lighting methods. Conventional signs may have more limited customization options, depending on the material used.
  • Installation and Maintenance: Acrylic signs are generally lightweight and easy to install, often requiring less mounting hardware and less effort than conventional signs. They are low-maintenance and do not require regular painting or sealing to maintain their appearance. Wooden signs may require repainting or sealing every 2-5 years, while metal signs can be low-maintenance, depending on the type of metal used and its finish.
