Perspex is an outstanding option for indications, because it’s light-weight as well as sturdy. It additionally is available in a wide array of thicknesses as well as shades. When choosing shade for an acrylic sign, we offer a range of alternatives.
- Standard Color styles
One of the most budget-friendly means to develop a custom acrylic sign is to utilize one or a mix of two or even more basic acrylic colors. perspex signage is readily available in a wide range of standard colors, consisting of clear, opaque as well as clear. These colors are provided in sheets that can be laser or router cut into numerous shapes or letters.
- Colored Plastic & Perspex
Sometimes typical acrylic shades simply will not function, especially when the indication will certainly be put near other top quality aspects. In this instance, plastic might be a much better choice to attain the wanted color. There are 3 methods for making use of plastic to create shade in acrylic signage:
First Surface– Vinyl can be adhered straight to the face of the acrylic. In the instance listed below, we stuck copper-color plastic to the surface of 1/4 ″ thick black acrylic to create the Franklin Wheelhouse’s custom-made logo sign. This method was selected because plastic was the best option to match the client’s copper brand name color.
Second Surface– Plastic can be used second surface (on the rear end) of clear acrylic. The clear polymer will certainly keep a shiny face while producing the desired color. We used this method for the Cumberland Pediatric Dental care & Orthodontics check in the picture listed below. Notice the glossy, virtually glass-like surface.
“Sandwich” Approach– Plastic can be “sandwiched” in between two layers of acrylic to develop a beautiful, deep shade that truly stands apart versus consistent tinted wall surfaces. This technique additionally produces much more dimension! We used this method in the LSO Final Mile and also Red’s 100% natural Burritos (Red R) indications shown below. In the LSO indicator, we sandwiched teal blue vinyl in between ⅛” black acrylic as well as ⅛” clear acrylic to create a lovely deep blue. To create the R in the Red’s indicator, we sandwiched red plastic between 1/2″ clear acrylic on the bottom as well as 1/4″ non-glare acrylic ahead. This produced a stunning satin red appearance.
