Types of Acrylic Signs
To maintain the effectiveness and determine the lifespan of your acrylic signs, you must decide on how you want your sign to be printed. We offer standard surface printing and subsurface printing. What would be the right option for our business would totally depend on where you want to use them and what will be their purpose.
Standard surface printing means the design would be on the front of the acrylic. It results in a matte finish and provides a thicker feel. If you want your sign design to cover up space at the front, standard surface acrylic signs will be the right choice.
In the case of subsurface or second surface printing, the sign design is printed at the back of the clear acrylic. The design is printed in reverse so that it can be seen clearly from the front of the sign. They provide a 3D appearance with depth along with a glossy finish. Subsurface printing costs more than the standard surface printing but adds to the durability as the sign elements are covered with a layer of acrylic that gives protection especially in the case of outdoor applications. If you want a glass-framed appearance for your signs, subsurface acrylic signs should be your choice.
