Custom Acrylic Signs (Panel Signs)
Put your stamp on the office with eye-catching signs
Acrylic signs are excellent choices for a simple yet beautiful look for any office, business, or professional setting. Direct visitors, customers and clients with high-quality, custom acrylic signs. They’re made of a lightweight and shatter-resistant polymer and specialised printing ensure your design or text won’t fade.
Acrylic signs can be printed on the front or back of the surface, both of which offer different advantages. Printing on the front of the sign is called "Standard" while printing on the backside of the acrylic is called "Second Surface".
For most custom acrylic signs we recommend Second Surface printing. This type of printing creates a depth and sheen that Standard printing does not have as well as is less likely to be scratched or damaged once installed. Drilled Holes & Standoffs The predominant way of displaying your custom acrylic sign is mounted on a rigid surface such as a wall. For easy hanging, we offer optional drilled holes for your sign. We offer drilled holes in: Each of the four corners Top and bottom centre Top corners only Corners and top and bottom centre Custom hole placement

Taking Care of Your Acrylic Sign
Acrylic easily scratches and can chip or shatter when mishandled. To prevent damage to your acrylic sign we recommend that you properly maintain and care for it. If you need to clean your acrylic sign we recommend using a damp non-abrasive cloth to wipe the surface. Avoid contact with any sharp objects that may scratch the printed surface or acrylic. When storing your acrylic sign, cover it with soft fabric or packaging wrap to prevent scratches. Do not place any objects on or against your acrylic sign during storage. For increased longevity install your sign in locations that aren't in direct sunlight for extended periods.
Acrylic vs Glass
While acrylic has some similar properties to glass they are completely different materials. Acrylic maintains the clarity of glass but still has the ability to shatter. So while acrylic may be called a "glass substitute" this is due to its beautiful printed appearance and not a fundamentally different durability when compared to traditional glass.
How thick is your acrylic? Do you offer different thickness options?
Our acrylic signs are .125” or approximately 3 mm, thick. The .125” acrylic is the default thickness offered on our website. You can also select 6mm (1/4” or .25”) during the design process.
Can I just drill my own holes?
Yes. You can absolutely drill your own holes if you wish. Though if you are drilling your own holes then we are unable to replace, repair or refund the sign due to any damage resulting from your efforts to drill holes. Any common drill with the proper bit will work with your acrylic sign.
I need holes drilled in custom locations / Can I get more than four drilled holes?
Yes, you can, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make any custom requests.
What sizes do you offer? Are there minimum or maximum dimensions my sign has to adhere to?
Acrylic signs truly come in every shape and size- we offer any custom size you may need!
What is the lifespan of your custom acrylic signs?
The lifespan of your acrylic sign will largely depend on how you use it and what kind of care it is given. With proper care and placement, your acrylic sign should last a minimum of 5 years.
Will my design increase the cost of the sign? / Does 1 or 2 colour printing reduce the cost?
We always print in full colour which means we don’t charge more or less based upon your graphic. If you require a design from our team, there is a 50 euro design charge, this allows you to change the design up to 3 times. Thus, the cost of your sign will depend on its size, any options that may be selected and how many you order.
Do you offer double sided acrylic signs?
For the clear/transparent acrylic that is offered on our website a double sided sign is not possible. The best way to get a double sided look is to purchase two signs and place them back to back. If this is what you are looking for, please be sure to avoid any clear areas on your sign so that you can place them back to back without being able to see through them.
Can I get my acrylic signs routed or cut into specific shapes?
Yes! There are several different shape options to choose from for your acrylic signs, including Square/Rectangle, Rounded Corners, Circle/Oval, Custom or Custom with Border.
Do your acrylic signs have a matte or gloss finish?
Our acrylic signs have a glossy sheen to them.This sheen is simply a glossy or shiny look that makes the sign look extremely good without negatively affecting the readability of the sign.
Do you print onto the acrylic or is there a piece of vinyl overlay?
Both! Depending on the sign, we either print directly onto the back of the sign. Or stick vinyl to the back of it.
What colour is the default acrylic?
Our standard acrylic is a clear/transparent material.
Are standoffs included with my acrylic signs?
We provide standoffs for your custom acrylic signs as an additional option. You can select this option while designing your sign on the design tool. Simply select the option and your acrylic sign will come with a package containing standoffs. More specifically it will include wall anchors, screws, and standoff tube and cap. If you select standoffs you do not need to select drilled holes. Additional standoffs can be purchased by contacting us.
