One of the most common types of signs is the acrylic sign. They are very strong – able to withstand a considerable amount of abuse – and they can be customized easily, making them one of the more versatile sign materials on the market today.
Acrylic is used in a variety of industries, the most common being retail. It is also well known for its contemporary look and feel, which is why it's also one of the most common signs in tech companies, high-end clothing stores, and any place where you clearly display your logo and brand name.
Acrylic as a material may also be used for small signs as well, including bathroom signs, room numbers, open hours, and it's used in regulatory signs that need to be durable without detracting from the design of the property.
Benefits of Acrylic Signs
Acrylic is one of the most popular materials in sign manufacturing for a reason, and that is because it has many advantages over other materials. These includes:
- Easily Shaped
- Glossy Material
- Durability (Easy to Clean)
You can customize them very well, adding colors, three-dimensional features, and more.
Weaknesses of Acrylic Signs
Acrylic signs are not meant to be outdoors. They can bend and break in the heat and may be scratched or chipped too easily. They can be used outdoors for short periods of time only.
Installation and Care
Installation depends on the type of sign. They may be mounted to a bent easel, they may hang, and they may be stuck onto another material using glue, tape, etc. Signs NY offers sign installation services for companies that need help.
Caring for your acrylic sign is very important. The following are acrylic sign care techniques:
- Avoid heat. Acrylic signs can bend in heat.
- Clean with dish soap and a rag. Do not clean with ammonia, alcohol, and bleach.
- Avoid any scouring pads or rough materials.
Indoors, acrylic tends to be long lasting and durable, but it is prone to damage, so make sure you care for your acrylic sign carefully. To learn more about acrylic and other materials, contact Signs NY today at (718) 453-8300.
