Types of Acrylic Signs

What Are Acrylic Signs?

Acrylic signs are ideal for office lobbies, retail stores, galleries, hotels, and as directional signage. Use them anywhere you want to showcase your business name and logo. They are also seen often as restroom signs, floor number signs, and similar office signage. The signs themselves are made from a cast polymer. The result is a perfectly transparent material that can be directly printed on and is more durable than glass. The most common acrylic signs we create include:

  • Acrylic Logos
  • Acrylic Lettering
  • Acrylic Standoff Signs
  • Acrylic Frosted and Etched Signs

Because of their durability and sleek appearance, acrylic signs are often used in professional settings. The affordable cost of printing acrylic signs makes them a popular choice for small businesses to showcase their name and logo. Designs are printed directly onto acrylic using a UV ink. This means logos and lettering maintain their crispness and coloring. Acrylic wall logos can also be cut in the shape of a logo for a modern look.

Standoff acrylic signs are another popular option for professional settings. They are mounted on pins so that they sit a few inches away from the wall. This contemporary look creates an offset shadow for opaque signs and makes the sign stand out. Signs can also be mounted flush against the wall.

Acrylic is also the most common material for lettering. Acrylic letters are versatile. They can be cut to match common typefaces, or completely customized to match your brand or logo.

Examples of the customization options we have available include:

  • Shape – With laser cutting, acrylic can be cut into any shape, including letters. The laser machine cuts the plastic with heat. This has the added advantage of melting the edges, giving the acrylic a smooth and polished look.
  • Thickness – Acrylic comes in a variety of thicknesses. Common sizes range from ⅛” thickness to more than 1”, with many options in between.
  • Size – Acrylic can be crafted to almost any size, or melded together to create an even larger size if needed. It is also one of the better material options for smaller size signs without sacrificing durability.
  • Colors – In addition to endless options for printing, the acrylic itself can also be matched to any PMS color. Multiple colors can even be used to match your brand.
  • Clarity – Many people choose clear acrylic signs. But acrylic can also be opaque or frosted, depending on the look your company is trying to achieve.
Because our team at Brooklyn Signs also offers sign design, we are able to provide consulting to help you determine how to design acrylic to match the look that you’re trying to achieve. Rush deliveries are also available.

Benefits of Acrylic Signs

Many businesses incorporate acrylic signs into their office designs. The signs themselves have many advantages over other types of signs, including glass and other materials. Some of their benefits include:

Professional Appearance

As an alternative to glass, acrylic provides a clean, crisp look. Some of the characteristics of acrylic that people value are smooth edges and sharp lines made possible by the cuts from the laser machinery.

Potential for 3 Dimensional Signs and Etched Signs

Acrylic can have visual components that add to the look and appearance of the final design. Standoff signs turn it into a 3D display, while etching and frosting can help the sign look exactly like glass. All of that is made possible by the acrylic material.


Acrylic is a great alternative to glass or metal for signage. As a plastic, it is far more affordable without sacrificing appearance. Our efficient process for creating these office acrylic signs and acrylic panels also cuts own on our own internal costs, which we pass onto the customer.

Easy Installation

Acrylic signs and letters can be installed with minimal handyman experience on most flat surfaces. We can provide the necessary hardware and template with your sign. If needed, we also offer local installation in the NYC and NJ areas.


Made of plastic, these signs will last for years. They are resistant to scratching or cracking, and can be easily cleaned. When used indoors and properly cared for, your sign will continue to look sharp and new.
Acrylic signs are one of the most popular signs for businesses of all sizes. With their customizations and benefits, it’s easy to create a sign that exactly meets your needs.
