The unique material properties of acrylic make it an ideal option for all kinds of signage projects. To help you choose the right material for the job, today’s post highlights 5 advantages acrylic signs have to offer.

Read on to learn why so many Baltimore businesses use high-performance plastics for their on-premise signage, or call (410)-877-6011 to speak directly with an acrylic sign expert.

5 Reasons To Choose Acrylic Signs For Your Business

1.   Acrylic Signs Are Durable, Lightweight, And Long-Lasting

The unique material properties of acrylic signs makes them suitable for just about any installation area, and with some occasional maintenance, they can last for decades. This translates to serious long-term savings in terms of sign production, maintenance, and removal. And when your signs start to show their age, acrylic signs are easily refaced—in many cases, you simply swap out the graphics or add some retrofittings to bring your display up to date.

2.   Acrylic Signs Come In All Different Shapes, Sizes, And Colors

Check out these colorful acrylic sign menu boards we recently completed for BRD in Baltimore, MD:

These acrylic signs turned out great, and the client was thrilled with the end-result, which perfectly matched their brand palette. But don’t think you’re limited to these basic colors!

On the contrary, acrylic signs are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes, and acrylic materials also offer excellent machinability, which means our team can cut and shape it to suit any custom design vision. Acrylic signs also stand up to all kinds of advanced design and production processes, including drilling, polishing, hot bending, texturing, and more.

3.   Acrylic Signs Are Ideal For Illuminated Displays And Retrofits

If you’re looking to light up your brand image, acrylic signs are the perfect option. Most acrylic plastics allow light of wavelengths greater than 375 nm to pass through the material without any absorption or distortion of visible light, creating an appealing diffusion effect. What’s more, acrylic sign faces and sign boxes can help protect sensitive LEDs and electrical components from the elements.

For these reasons, acrylic remains a popular option for channel letters and pylon signs.

For example, check out this recent pylon sign project we completed for the team at Healthy Life Adult Medical Day Center in Reisterstown, MD.

4.   Acrylic Signs Make The Perfect Creative Canvas For Vinyl Graphics

Acrylic sign panels are smooth, nonporous, and perfectly flat, which makes them the ideal canvas for any custom design.

Acrylic sign panels work particularly well in combination with vinyl, combining the strength, durability, and aesthetic properties of acrylic with the creative freedom of vinyl.

For example, you could decorate your acrylic sign face with any image or graphic printed in stunning 1200 dpi resolution, or you could choose one of our attractive frosted finishes to simulate etched glass, as we did recently for the TNAT Holistic Wellness Center:

Because it is perfectly flat and nonporous, graphics install easily, with no visible bumps, air pockets, or adhesion issues.

5.   Acrylic Signs Are Extremely Economical

Acrylic is much less expensive than some other composite materials, and they allow owners to create an upscale glass-like aesthetic for a fraction of the price. What’s more, their excellent machinability and lightweight properties help buyers save money on manufacturing and installation. And when you factor in their incredible lifespan, acrylic signs become even more cost-effective.
