Acrylic Signs and Graphics

For signage as versatile as your clientele, look no further than high visibility, low-cost acrylic sign solutions from AlphaGraphics.

Crisp, modern acrylic signs

High-grade acrylic is a very unique material. It can be transparent or opaque plastic that resembles glass, but is far more durable and adaptable. Acrylic makes fashionable signage extremely cost effective.

Whether you’re in the market for individual letters to spell out your business name or a backlit directional sign for your office lobby, acrylic is the chameleon of materials.

Acrylic signs can also:
  • Protect printed graphics and lettering from harsh elements
  • Be paired with metal for an elegant look
  • Be non-glare or high gloss
  • Mimic etched glass when frosted
  • Be cut and layered for a 3D effect

Painted, printed, backlit, or frosted, acrylic signs are the optimal method to impress for less. Combine this flexible material with AlphaGraphics advanced digital printing techniques and a team of marketing gurus, and you’ve got a recipe for powerful signage that will knock out the competition.

Acrylic Signs And Graphics In Oceanside, NC

Acrylic is a versatile material that is durable, cost-effective and has the look and feel of glass.

When you’re looking to spruce up the signage in your office, why should you choose acrylic over glass? 


Because acrylic is made out of a plastic type material, it is very cost-effective. This means that you can have the signage in your office redone for a fraction of the cost of glass. If you somehow accidentally break the it (which is extremely hard to do) it won’t cost a fortune to replace. 


Being that it’s made out of a plastic type of material, it is very hard and durable. If the sign falls to the floor, it won’t shatter into a thousand pieces. It’s also lightweight, weighing just a fraction of what a glass sign would weigh. For businesses that are in earthquake zones, it makes good common sense to get a big sign created using acrylic. If it should happen to accidentally fall from the wall, it won’t turn into a grenade of glass shards flying in all directions.


It is manufactured in such a way that it is better than glass in transmitting light which gives it that really clear look even if it’s an inch thick. This unique property also makes it very versatile in that you can etch it without fear of breaking or perform some pretty cool tricks like using grommets and metal studs to hang it from the wall or your desk. If you pair it with a brushed, crystal, frosted or satin metal, it will give off an extremely sophisticated look and feel.

If you really want to stand out and make a good first impression, try cutting and layering it so that it will have a 3D kind of effect. Ask your AlphaGraphics design expert to show you some really cool examples of what can be done. Both you and your customers or clients will be amazed at how good these kinds of signs look when taken to that next level. 

You can also use it (in conjunction with white ink) to create a reflective image, or light diffuser for a back-lit sign. Being that AlphaGraphics has state-of-the-art printers, we can print very high quality, and eye-catching colors that will accentuate the already classy look of the material. 

Most people use it for signage for buildings, however that doesn’t mean it can’t be used for other applications. Tradeshow displays are eye-catching when you incorporate some acrylic into the design.  Same goes for nameplates, which when combined with cut vinyl lettering, create a cost-effective yet durable solution that will complement the modern décor of your office. 

The mounting options are just as varied. Due to the light weight, it can be stuck to the wall with 2-sided sticky tape, it can be drilled and mounted with aluminum stand-offs (without fear of breakage), it can even be hung with suction cups!
