Acrylic signs are becoming increasingly popular for businesses and organizations looking for a modern, eye-catching sign solution. But what are acrylic signs, and how are they used?
What are Acrylic Signs?
Acrylic signs are made from acrylic plastic and are known for being lightweight and impact resistant. Because of these two features, acrylic signs are often used to display outside for visibility from a distance. In addition, they’re commonly used for advertising specials and events and drawing attention to a business.
Made from 100% acrylic plastic, these signs are ultra-stable, impact resistant, and lightweight. They are machine-cut and polished to a glossy finish; many are colored with UV-resistant ink. Because of these features, acrylic signs are a great outdoor sign solution. They can stand up to the elements while clearly displaying your business name or advertisement.
How are Acrylic Signs Made?
An acrylic sign is made using a method called dye-sublimation. This is where the ink is pressed into the plastic sheet before the sheet is heated to set the ink. The sheet is then cut and polished to a glossy finish. If color is wanted, UV-resistant ink is used.
This process achieves vivid, bright colors and an easily recognizable modern aesthetic. The inks used in the process are also designed to resist fading and damage from exposure to the elements.
What are the Benefits of Acrylic Signs?
There are several benefits of acrylic signs that make them a great choice for advertising and promoting your business. They’re lightweight, impact-resistant, and scuff-resistant, which makes them easy to hang outside.
Here are additional benefits of acrylic signs that you may not have considered for your small business:
When compared to metal signs, acrylic signs are less expensive to create. Acrylic signs also have a shorter lifetime (in terms of signs) than metal signs, meaning you’ll have to replace your acrylic sign less often. This means less money spent on producing new signs and more money remaining for other business needs.
You can customize your acrylic sign using a font and wording that best represents your business. The sign can include important information about your business, such as business name, logo, address, phone number, or product information. Customers will be able to locate your business using your sign easily.
Scuff- and UV-resistant
Acrylic signs are made with durable material that can withstand scuffs and abrasions. The material also protects your sign from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which means color degradation over time. The longevity of your sign means you’ll be able to use it for your entire life of the sign, which will benefit your business by maintaining a consistent brand and presence.
Lightweight and Durable
As mentioned, acrylic signs are made with durable material, yet they’re still lightweight. This means you’ll be able to hang your sign easily without worrying about damaging the building or property it’s hanging from. Additionally, these signs are light enough to travel with, meaning you can set up a pop-up shop with your sign in hand.
