Decorating your acrylic signs

Preparation

Once you’ve cut your acrylic sign to the required size, it is recommended that you polish the edges for a clean finish. Clean the surface by removing any dust, masking residue or static charges with a lint-free damp sponge.

Screen Printing

This is a suitable option for volume production. Acrylic business signs can be decorated by screen printing whereby paint is applied using a screen in a fluid, uniform motion.

Painting

Paint is usually applied to acrylic signs using an atomizer spray gun system that will distribute oil-free paint evenly across the surface. Areas not to be painted can be covered with masking to produce clean lines and edges.

Vinyl appliques

Vinyl films can be applied to acrylic house signs for a modern, professional finish. Depending on the size of the graphic and the type of vinyl film, the vinyl wrap can be applied using either the dry or wet method.
