Acrylic, PVC, foam, and metal are common materials that are used for creating lobby signs. All of them assist in adding dimension to lobby signage and craft an excellent visual impression.
Feeling unsure which to choose? No problem. We’ll make sense of all those options.
Nothing will project efficient, crisp permanence and reliability like formed, cast, or solid metal letters. Similar to the material they’re made from, businesses using these materials suggest that they will be around forever.
Letters that are made from authentic metals and alloys are usually the heaviest, most durable, and most expensive sign letters. With the dawn of new materials crafted to offer the impression of metals, metal letters have mainly been relegated to outdoor usage, in which durability is critical.
Metal Laminate Letters
Through the use of metal laminate letters, it’s possible to obtain the appearance of cut or cast metal letters without the weight or expense of solid metal. These signage letters are created by applying a thin metal laminate layer to a substrate, like PVC, acrylic, or foam.
They’re the ideal option for crafting a premium “we will be here forever” impression with your lobby signage. Projecting stability and permanence is a vital functionality of lobby signage for most businesses.
It’s one of the substrates that may be utilized to add dimension to laminated letters. Foam letters are an excellent choice if you want depth on the lobby wall signage.
Besides metal laminates, lightweight foam letters may be laminated with an acrylic face so they’re able to match a certain logo color or generate a vibrant “pop” to your signage.
Acrylic letters have become one of the hottest options for indoor signage letters. These laser-cut, precise letters may be painted or colored to match the branding of your business.
One unique advantage of acrylic substrate letters is crafting a stand-off effect through the use of clear acrylic as a substrate with a laminated or painted metallic face.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is another durable material option for outdoor and indoor signs. Letters may be custom painted and then cut to match the image and branding of your business.
Apart from any custom or standard color, PVC letters may be painted using graduated colors that add vividness to the lobby sign.
