This post highlights four tips you can enhance Perspex for a perfectly stunning look. Read on for more.
There are many standardised rectangular or square shapes for signage, but custom cutting provides shapes tailored to suit your needs. You can choose an irregularly shaped sign customised according to your company logo, making a massive difference. However, the shape you decide to work with can determine how your signs transform from nice to outstanding.
Raised Letters or Logos
When you want to add an excellent finishing touch to print designs, consider adding dimension to them. You can achieve that by custom cutting your company name, slogan or logo using a unique colour and apply the 3D letters over it. Besides, you can choose to design your 3D logo and match it with a printed business name. Whichever option you choose, the added dimensions appear distinctive and innovative.
You can also achieve a beautiful finish using laser cutting or flame polishing your signage edges. You can then apply adequate heating to the plastic to achieve shiny and smoother edges. While this process takes a short time, it can make a resounding difference. Additionally, bevelling the edges can help give your signage some pretty nice dimensional finish and flair.
Another excellent way to achieve an attractive sign is by adding coloured acrylic backers to the already clear acrylic. You can choose to work with any coloured acrylic. However, choosing mirror-finished golden or silvered Perspex provides an excellent touch of class. Another way is reverse printing your acrylic letters, graphics or photos and paste it behind the clear Perspex for an impressive result. That means the result will have a smooth surface but with an attractive design displayed through the clear acrylic.
Acrylic or Perspex has a unique pigmentation and excellent sheen that gives it a lovely appearance.
