Acrylic Signs

Acrylic signs are made of an extremely versatile plastic sheet with a glossy finish, which is also known as Plexiglas®. Acrylic is the perfect choice when you want signs with a sophisticated, high-tech look. Highly durable and available in a variety of colors, acrylic is often used for illuminated, architectural, tradeshow and point-of-purchase signs.

Acrylic Sign Applications

This plastic product can be heated to form many shapes. Use it to create:

  Brochure holders
  Signs and easels, all-in-one
  Point-of-purchase products
  Menu boards
  Tradeshow exhibits
  Retail signs
  Restaurant signs
  Nameplates and name badges
  Directional and informational signs
  Showroom signs
  Office building signs

Acrylic Sign Ideas

Increase the visual effectiveness of your acrylic signs by:

  Adding stripes and borders
  Applying multiple lettering colors
  Incorporating a logo or graphic symbol
  Using multiple layers of acrylic to enhance the image
  Creating a three-dimensional effect - giving the perception of
     depth to the finished product - using clear acrylic and applying
     a background color to the reverse side
  Designing custom applications
  Using bent easels
  Using non-glare acrylic to reduce glare problems

Acrylic Sign Sample Ideas


Acrylic signs may be displayed in several ways:

  Self-supporting (bent easel)
  Using Velcro®
  Using double-sided tape
  Applying suction cups


  Do not leave acrylic in direct sun or in a hot car; it may bow or
     bend if not laying flat
  Handle acrylic signs with care because acrylic scratches easily
     and can shatter or chip upon impact
  Use acrylic signs for long-term indoor use or for short-term outdoor
     use in areas protected by overhangs or awnings.
     (This does not apply to acrylic used in light box signs)

Sign products and materials may vary by location.
