Acrylic Signs (Large Format Printing)
Acrylic prints are made from a cast polymer that is colorless, transparent and durable, a great substitute for glass.
This clear acrylic provides depth, clarity, and beauty to any direct print. Often used as lobby and architectural signage it is the perfect solution to display photographs in any home or office application. Acrylic prints are printed with UV ink directly onto the material. If you choose to print on the second surface, the thickness of the acrylic adds depth and warmth to the image.
Standard - 1st Surface
Acrylic can be printed on the front or back of the surface with different advantages. Printing on the front of the sign is called "Standard" or 1st surface print. Printing on this surface will give you a matte finish.
Second Surface printing is the most recommend. This type of printing creates a depth and sheen that can't be achieve with Standard printing and less likely to be scratched or damaged once installed. Bright lights can sometimes cause some glare on signs printed with the option of Second Surface. Softer and indirect lighting helps to avoid glare caused by bright lights.
The best way to display acrylic sign is mounted on a rigid surface such as a wall. For easy hanging we offer optional drilled holes for your sign.
We offer drilled holes in:
- Each of the four corners
- Top and bottom center
- Top corners only
- Corners and top and bottom center
- Custom hole placement
The perfect pairing with drilled holes are our gorgeous brushed anodized aluminum standoffs. These standoffs are an optional purchase and measure 0.5" in diameter and 0.75" in length.
To install your acrylic with our aluminum standoffs please refer to the installation notes included with the standoffs.
