Wonderful experience!

Client Review

5/5
We couldn’t be happier!
Channel letters Being Built

We got both of our restaurant signs from them, and we couldn’t be happier!  They were affordable, had incredible customer service, and the quality of their product matches their customer service!  They even took care of some of our street light issues at no additional charge since they were already on-site with the lift!

They have a new customer for life!

Subtrates and Materials

Acrylic used in Signage

The first Acrylic was formulated in 1843 by Otto Rohm  (of Rohm and Hass fame). In 1909 a patent was filed for a plastic precursor “Bakelite”. Acrylic resins appeared in 1931.  The first widespread use was in Aviation during World War II for aircraft windshields and lenses (Submarine periscopes). Plexiglas (a brand name for Acrylic) is lighter than glass, very strong, bullet resistant and easily formed in to shapes. Plexiglas continued to grow in popularity. It reached its peak in the 1970s.

Other Names for Acrylic

Other names used include Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, and Acrylic. Plastics have come of age over the last 75 years. The material has evolved from a synthetic “substitute” for other materials to a valuable new raw material. It now occupies a permanent place in our technology and may be the basic material of the future

Translucent vs Opaque Acrylic Sheets

Translucent Acrylic sheets are used for faces and panels. These are backlit and the light goes through it.  This is called “sign grade.”. It is not transparent (a clear sheet of Acrylic is transparent) Translucent lets defused light through and is the ideal choice for backlighting. Opaque does not let light through.

Cast vs Extruded Acrylic

Cast is formed using a slurry. The slurry solvents come off and form a sheet. There is no X-Y differences and any shrinkage is uniform.  The melting temperature is generally higher meaning it can be routed faster. Extrusion is forced through a gate in a liquid or near liquid state. This has X-Y differences and will shrink differently in X and Y.  It also melts at a lower temperature and must be routed slower. Cast is generally better and more expensive.

 

Colors

Acrylic comes in about 60 colors. Paint comes in thousands of colors.  The common colors are white, black, clear and red.  These colors come in different thicknesses.  The other colors are generally available only in 1/8” thickness. We use mostly ¼” Opaque, extruded for dimensional letters and 1/8 and 3/16” translucent for faces
