Acrylic signs are becoming a popular way for businesses and organizations to advertise their products and services, since they’re both attractive and highly durable. But what exactly are acrylic signs, and what makes them such a great alternative to wood, plastic or metal?
JC Pro Design’s acrylic signs are made from acrylic plastic, which is a highly impact resistant and lightweight material. This makes them an ideal choice for signage that needs to be durable and give the business years of use either indoors or outdoors. It also allows for crisp and vibrant printing directly onto the material with your eye catching text and graphics.
If you’re looking for new signage options for your business, let’s look at some of the most common questions we hear about the benefits of custom acrylic signage over traditional materials.
1. How durable are acrylic signs?
One of the biggest advantages we’ve found with acrylic is its durability. Custom acrylic signs are extremely resistant to damage, including fading, scratches, warping and wear and tear in general.
Acrylic business signs are made to last for many years, even when hit by direct sunlight, temperature changes, harsh weather conditions and more. We see a lot of traditional signage material like wood or metal show signs of aging after just a couple of years. This makes acrylic a good investment for brands looking for signage that will last.
2. Are acrylic signs weather resistant?
Acrylic is a durable plastic, which helps it stand up to moisture, rain, snow and humidity compared to more traditional signage materials. Acrylic can also withstand UV rays from sunlight better than other plastics, which means it won’t fade as quickly over years of sun exposure.
You can be sure that acrylic signage from JC Pro Design will keep their vibrant appearance and readability despite Salt Lake’s changing seasons.
3. Tell me more about acrylic. What exactly is it made from?
The acrylic we use for signage is made from a lightweight thermoplastic, which is more commonly called plexiglass. It’s made from acrylic acid and methyl methacrylate (MMA)
This type of transparent plastic is really easy to cut, shape and drill, which makes it such a versatile material for all kinds of sign shapes and sizes. Acrylic outdoor signs are also easy to print directly on, using our specialized techniques for applying text, graphics and more.
4. Is acrylic signage expensive?
One of the biggest perks of printing a custom acrylic sign is that it’s so cost effective when you compare it to traditional sign materials. That’s because they’re less expensive to produce and install than comparable signs constructed with aluminum, steel or wood. You can mount an acrylic sign with basic hardware when it’s placed outside, or inside with simple adhesive strips.
Plus, since acrylic signs have exceptional durability, you won’t need to replace them as frequently, so your initial investment will hold over years of use.
5. What are some examples of custom acrylic signs for small businesses?
Retail stores can use acrylic either indoors or outdoors to attract customers and improve wayfinding. Restaurants and cafes can consider acrylic menu boards to enhance their ordering experience. If you’re considering trade show displays, acrylic is great for holding brochures and signs that will attract people to your booth. Acrylic signs are great for an office too, for reception, lobby and communal area signage.
