Acrylic Signage Malaysia – Everything You Need To Know
What’s the most professional-looking type of sign that won’t blow up your budget? For many business owners, it’s an acrylic signage.
Acrylic signs are incredibly versatile, highly functional, and extremely impressive looking. Besides that, there are at least three different reasons why business owners love this type of signage, not the least of which is cost effectiveness.
Below, you’ll find everything you need to know if you’re considering an acrylic signboard for your business. And here are the 4 main reasons why business owners choose them.
#1. Acrylic Signage is Cost Effective
Considered a lower-cost alternative to a lot of quality materials (eg glass, stainless steel, aluminium, bronze, etc), acrylic signs can be mounted anywhere, on any surface. They offer not only cost savings but also increased versatility: acrylic signboards can be made to look like almost anything with the use of stickers.
#2. Acrylic Signs are Lightweight
Acrylic signage is also significantly lighter than glass or metal signage- about 310 grams per square foot. That means you can mount an oversize sign on walls with fewer concerns about doing structural damage to your building because of the weight of your sign.
This feature opens up design possibilities that simply aren’t possible with glass or metal signs. Imagine a custom designed 4 foot by 12 foot panorama on the wall of your business lobby: magnificent!
#3. Use Acrylic Signboards Both Indoor and Outdoor
Businesses use acrylic signs indoors and outdoors alike: they’re weather resistant and durable, especially with the use of premium quality materials such as 3M stickers.
#4. Acrylic Signage Have So Many Design Options
For a clean look where you’d like the wall to show through, choose clear acrylic signs. They can be mounted using decorative hardware: pins in each corner of the sign that can be made of brass or stainless steel. This way, the mounting hardware becomes part of the design element of the entire look of the sign. Of course this isn’t possible with any other type of signage.
For a really sleek professional look, choose acrylic letters mounted individually right on your wall surface. They’ll look like floating letters and since they’re 3D, they’ll cast a shadow, too. It’s a very dramatic, impressive looking and exudes power, strength, stability, and success.
A backlit LED acrylic sign is another way to add interest and drama to your business sign. Done right, you can achieve a gallery-quality look that adds artistry to your wall as well as function and beauty.
Another common design option is to choose a clear sign and have a custom vinyl print applied. Match colors to your logo, your interior decor, or whatever you please. Colours can be painted on too.
Caring of Acrylic Signs
Cleaning is easy, as long as you remember that acrylic can be scratched by abrasive materials.
DON’T use steel wool, a rough brush, or scouring scrubs.
DO use soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth. Microfiber cleaning cloths are perfect.
