What are Acrylic Signs?

An acrylic signage is a sign made from the plastic material, acrylic. Why make a sign from this material? It is a clear plastic that has many characteristics that make it ideal for use as a sign. It’s strong and stiffly holds its shape. Yet, it is flexible enough when warmed to mold into all kinds of custom shapes. This plastic will also bond well with adhesives used to complete the sign and handle the weather outside in Charlotte easily. Acrylic is also known by a brand name, plexiglass sign, but the two materials are the same.

Types of Acrylic Signs

You probably aren’t most familiar with this material as a clear plastic. Most acrylic signs in Charlotte are brightly colored. In fact, that is another benefit of acrylic, that it can be easily dyed to be your exact brand color. While colorful acrylic is most common, there are other types, including:

  • Frosted acrylic signs: These signs have a frosted effect on them as if condensation gathered on them. The result looks great and can be used strategically to bring privacy to a space.
  • Clear acrylic signs: Leaving acrylic undyed is a great option to contrast with more colorful parts of the sign. Clear acrylic is a great background or support material.
  • Mirror acrylic signs: Mirror acrylic has a reflective effect, like a mirror, but is much less breakable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Acrylic signs are made of cast acrylic sheets that are computer cut with the images and the text laser engraved into the material. Acrylic is a plastic that can be as clear as glass or colored translucent. These signs are mounted using lag bolts or double-sided tape. 

Acrylic is a synthetic polymer that can be formulated to achieve a wide range of finishes. The type of acrylic resin used in signs should have good light stability, resistance to weathering and other harmful atmospheric conditions, dimensional stability, and high impact strength.

Acrylic provides outstanding optical clarity for brilliant color reproduction and image sharpness. 

Yes. Acrylic signs are durable because they can be made up to 1/4″ thick and are typically protected with plexiglass or an acrylic glaze. This makes them very durable and lightweight. You can even drill through them without breaking or cracking! This is a huge benefit for acrylic signs for your business. 

Yes.

Acrylic is a man-made plastic that is formed into fibers or different shapes, typically solid rather than hollow. It is considered to be the same type of material as polyacrylonitrile, which has been used in textiles since its discovery.

This is the plastic that we use in most of our signs. 

The life of the sign depends upon the type of material, element, and conditions it is subjected to. Acrylic signs are very durable, but they are often exposed to elements that can degrade the sign.

As long as you take care of the sign, it will last you a long time. 

Yes! Acrylic signs are 100% waterproof and can be used outside as long as they are properly installed. Proper installation is the key to a long sign life!

We know that accidents happen, so whether you have a spill, or the elements get to the sign, you won’t have to worry about things getting ruined. 

The answer is both yes and no. Acrylic signs are an excellent choice for indoor or outdoor use where moderate weather will not affect them, but they are not the best choice for extreme weather conditions.
If you do have extreme weather conditions, let us know. We can suggest some stronger materials. 

Yes, some types of acrylic turn yellow. Acrylic signs are popular because the letters are very durable. But it is possible for acrylic signs to turn yellow after many years. This is caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light rays.

But don’t worry about that too much. This takes a very long time. 

It depends on the size, material, and additional features you are looking for. There are no standard acrylic sign prices, but it is best to get an online quote for your needs. In general, the bigger the sign, the more it might cost to create. Contact us today for the most accurate price. 

Signs should be made of 1/4″ or 3/16″ thick acrylic. This is because acrylic is very rigid, and it will not bend, giving the sign its strength.
