Acrylic signs are made from a cast polymer that is colorless, transparent and durable and is a perfect substitute for traditional glass. Because of their depth, clarity, and beauty they are often used as lobby, directional, and architectural signage.
Acrylic signage is one of the more common and durable signage used in the sign industry, as evident in its vast applications across various mediums. With its versatility, ease of use, and relative light weight compared with other materials, it has become the main choice of material for the fabrication of signages in Montreal.
That said, not all acrylic are created equal, and choosing the right type of acrylic material will ensure that the signage performs as intended. For example, a special type of light acrylic will be needed if light is required to permeate through it, as conventional acrylic do not allow for the full permeation of light.
The default thickness for our acrylic signs is 1⁄8″ thick. For almost all uses this thickness will be sufficient.
Nonetheless, for a thicker acrylic with added durability and rigidity we offer a 1⁄4″ thick option at a slightly more expensive price. The thicker acrylic also offers a greater light refraction for more sheen and depth.
Both thickness options do have some bendability to them. When ordering either thickness, we recommend that you select centered top and bottom drilled holes in addition to the four corners for added support for all signs greater than 60″.
