Plastic Sign Plates

 Custom Plastic signs can be used in many different ways, and this is due to the fact that the kinds of plastic that are used for making signs are quite numerous. There are a huge number of plastic types that can be used for sign making and this is due to the versatility of this particular material. Since plastic is moldable, comes in a wide variety of colors, can be bended and cut, a lot of manufacturers have these on their list of material choices for their sign options.

Aside from versatility, the use of plastic for custom signs is due to its durability and its light weight. Signs made with plastic are also some of the cheapest, which makes it ideal for those who are working within a rather strict budget. Also worth noting is that plastic signs can be used both indoors and outdoors, depending of course on the type of plastic being used for crafting such signs.

Some of the signs you can find being made with the use of this particular material include traffic signs, property signs, indoor directional signs, street signs and promotional signs. Architectural signage can also be made with the use of plastic. Also part of the sign variants that are crafted with the use of plastic are door signs, company logo and name signs, and even office directories.

Some of the plastic types you can expect to be used for these signs include the following:

Acrylic Plastic SignAcrylic – this is a material that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Being the only plastic material that can be made in a clear variant, a lot of people choose this material for lighted signs and for classy, sophisticated signage needs. Acrylic signs are waterproof (as are all plastic signs), can be made with either a matte or gloss finish, and are very easy to mount due to its very light weight. Only one side of this material can be printed on however, due to its light weight and ability to come in many different colors, you can create a sign using acrylic layered one on top of the other.

PVC Plastic Signs


PVC – this plastic material is also durable but cannot be exposed to heat or direct sunlight because it will warp and discolor. This is why this is only ideal for use indoors. This can be used for directional signs, directories and due to the non-glare finish of such a material, can also be used for ADA signage.
