Types Of Plastic Letters

About Plastic Letter Signs and Laser Cut Letters

Most lettering these days is made from acrylic sign material. Acrylic letters are more cost-efficient and customizable than metal letters. They are found behind reception desks, on the office walls of doctors and dentists, above rooms in hospitals, and even throughout city buildings. Their versatility and ability to provide a three-dimensional shape that pops from the wall makes them popular in most professional settings.

There are different machines used to cut these letters, depending on the type you need. Simple letters, especially those thinner than 1 inch, can be cut via our CNC machine. This is also the tool we are most likely to use when creating an inverse letter sign (where the sign is a larger piece of acrylic and the letters are created from the negative space). Common sizing includes:
  • 1/8”
  • 3/16”
  • 1/4”
  • 1/2”
  • 3/4”
  • 1” and More
For signs that are 1″ or more, we also use a laser machine, which cuts acrylic using heat. This tool also melts the edges, giving these laser cut letters a far more polished and crisp look. Letters are also customizable, with options that include:
  • Typeface/Design – Our tools make it possible for us to cut logo letters into plastic even if they are designed solely for your business. We can also create logos, which is why these same techniques are used for wall logo signs.
  • Colors – Acrylic, even more so than other types of sign materials, can be crafted in almost any color – and potentially multiple colors. We can match any PMS color to customize the look to your brand. This makes the signs more vibrant, helping to improve the impact and branding of the sign.
  • Standoff/Flush – Signs can also be made as pin mounted letters, which stand off the walls to create a sharp shadow, or they can be close to flush against the wall.
For businesses that are looking for support, our sign designers can use common typefaces like Ariel, Brush Script, Clarendon, Futura, and Helvetica, or we can integrate the personality of your brand to create something more custom.

Organizations that are on a tight budget or need to add letter signs throughout a building find that acrylic is an affordable way to provide that professional look without sacrificing quality.
  • Durable and Long Lasting – Acrylic is a type of signage that is designed to last. It has an average lifespan of X years when property maintained, and while it is not weatherproof, it is easy to clean and resists decay. You can expect your letters to maintain their look for many years when property cared for.
