What Are Standoff Signs?

Standoff signs, also known as wall-mounted signs, are a contemporary type of signage that uses a raised or floating effect to give depth and prominence to the displayed content. Mounting letters and graphics creates these signs or panels a certain distance from the surface, creating a shadow and highlighting the design.

The purpose of standoff signs goes beyond conveying information; they play a pivotal role in reinforcing brand identity, enhancing aesthetics, and making a memorable impact on viewers. Wall-mounted signs are commonly used for wayfinding and branding purposes.

Customize Standoff Signs to Match Your Branding

Material Options

Standoff signs can be made from all kinds of materials, making them one of the most customizable and distinctive looking signs you can use in your office building or other place of business. All that needs to occur is that the sign is placed off of the wall in some way. Yet there are common materials for standoff signs, especially (although not exclusively) clear materials that allow the sign to have a 3D appearance, casting shadows on the wall. Some of the most common materials used for these signs include:​



This material can have the same clear, smooth finish as glass, but is much more lightweight and durable. If your sign is going to be outdoors or in a heavily trafficked area, this is a good material to consider.



It’s hard to match the high-quality look of glass signs. This material is also easier to clean of fingerprints and germs and can very easily customized with painting, etching, decals, and more.



Plexiglass is a type of acrylic, but has an even harder, more durable surface than regular acrylic. Surface scratches and cracks are less likely, and it also makes a good outdoor sign material.



Aluminum is extremely cost effective, lightweight, and easily customizable. They’re also very durable, and widely used for almost any kind of sign you can think of.



Dibond signs are made of two aluminum panels with a piece of polystyrene foam between them. They’re one of the lightest sign materials, are still very strong, and can be easily cut into any shape required.



Brass has a timeless, attractive appearance that can make a big impact when used for award signs, dedication signs, office name plates, lettering, and more.


Discover the power of customization at Signs New York. We aim to transform your signage into an impactful masterpiece that reflects your brand’s essence. Begin with material and design options that exemplify versatility. Whether it’s the contemporary allure of acrylic, the elegance of glass, the strength of metal, or the timeless charm of wood, each material carries its distinct texture, color palette, and durability. With our 30 years of experience, we ensure your choice aligns perfectly with your aesthetics and stands the test of time.
