Glass or Acrylic: Which Suits Your Needs?

Glass/Acrylic (or Plexiglas) are unique, eye catching materials that lend themselves well to any design aesthetic.

Acrylic: Versatility is the main reason we specialize in designing with acrylic; the design options are unlimited. The main difference between glass and acrylic is that acrylic is much lighter weight and easier to cut into different shapes. It can be made with any color, and is usually less expensive in fabrication and in transportation. Acrylic has the look of glass, but with added safety, strength, and durability due to its chemical make-up. We recommend digital printing text on this material.

Glass: Offering sophistication and class, glass is perfect for a permanent recognition display that will not need to be updated often (if ever). From room naming plaques, to 20 foot long recognition displays – glass is a universally pleasing aesthetic at any size. We recommend sandblasting or hand-engraving text for this material.
