signage overview

Plastics are widely used to create signage; whether that’s acrylic being used to form indoor or outdoor signs or banners for corporate buildings. Plastic offers a flexible, durable and popular choice due to its cost-saving benefits, with acrylic a fashionable option for its modern and professional look.

Signage is crucial to direct people (wayfinding around buildings such as hospitals), draw attention (for attracting people to purchase such as point of sale advertising), to communicate a message, or help build a corporate identity.

There is virtually unlimited use for plastics within signage – internal, external positioning, high heat and varied climates; it’s ideal for them all.
