What are Frosted Acrylic Signs?

Frosted acrylic sign with standoffs at an angle to show detail

Frosted acrylic signs are beautifully crafted to diffuse light and elegantly present a brand or message. Acrylic is a glass substitute that is more durable than glass while maintaining all the appearance of professional signage. Frosted acrylic provides a translucent background to your design.

Similar to clear acrylic signs, frosted acrylic signs are often used as decorative signage solutions to augment an office space or proudly display a brand or logo. Although recommended for indoor signage uses, frosted acrylic can be used indoors or outdoors. Fully customize any design by printing on frosted acrylic in full color.

Drilled Holes & Standoffs

Frosted acrylic signs look best when mounted directly to a wall using standoffs. Mounting your frosted acrylic sign with standoffs gives a professional look and ensures that your sign will last for a long period of time. Standoffs can be purchased as an option with your sign.

Shape Options

Customize your frosted acrylic sign to any shape. In addition to the standard square or rectangle shape you can also choose between circle or oval, rounded corners, custom, or custom with border. Custom shapes allow you to create a beautifully unique sign.

Square/Rectangle

Frosted acrylic shape option—square/rectangle

Design an elegant frosted acrylic sign as a square or rectangle. Add drilled holes and standoffs to finish it off.

Rounded Corners

Frosted acrylic shape option—rounded corners

Square signs are fantastic, but with a solid material like frosted acrylic, those corners can be sharp. Round them off with either ¼” or ½” rounded corners.

Circle/Oval

Frosted acrylic shape option—circle/oval

A round sign compliments many logos and designs. Customize by changing height and width to get your perfect shape.

Custom

Frosted acrylic shape option—custom

Custom shape means that your frosted acrylic sign can be cut to the contour of your design. Simply upload your custom file or let our Free Design Services help!

Custom with Border

Frosted acrylic shape option—custom with border

When a custom cut is wanted with more intricate designs, the Custom with Border option is recommended. A ¼” to ½” border runs around your design like a “halo”.

Standoffs and Drilled Holes

Frosted acrylic signs are most frequently mounted on a wall using standoffs. Drilled holes and standoffs are optional but highly recommended as they provide the perfect compliment to your profesional sign. To make it easier to hang your sign, we offer drilled holes in 8 different configurations:

You can choose between ⅜" drilled holes or ¼" drilled holes. If you are planning on mounting your frosted acrylic sign with standoffs, choose ⅜" drilled holes.

Standoffs are the perfect pair for drilled holes. One half inch diameter standoffs are elegantly made from anodized brushed aluminum and are aesthetically appealing for any frosted acrylic design.

Frosted vs Clear Acrylic

Frosted acrylic has some unique qualities that make it a wonderful signage option. Similar to a window that frosts over during cold weather, frosted acrylic signs are translucent, or semi-opaque. This effect looks fantastic when mounted on a wall of any color or texture. Frosted acrylic can also be used as a divider or barrier to provide some privacy between two spaces.

Our clear acrylic signs on the other hand simulate clear glass with perfect transparency. Both clear and frosted acrylic signs are lightweight and durable and provide an elegant sign for any office space or setting. Click below to get started with clear or frosted acrylic.

Removing the Protective Film

Removing the Protective Film

Because of the nature of acrylic, there is a tendency for the surface of your sign to scratch. In order to protect your sign during shipping, we add a protective film to the back, glossy side of your frosted acrylic sign before packaging and shipping it directly to your door.

The film is not a permanent part of your frosted acrylic sign and can be easily removed. Simply peel the brown film away from the sign starting in one corner and slowly working the film out and away from the acrylic surface.

Caring for Frosted Acrylic Signs

Acrylic is a beautiful signage material that when cared for properly can last for years. Similar to glass, acrylic can scratch and even chip or shatter if handled poorly. Damage to your frosted acrylic sign can be prevented by properly installing, maintaining and caring for the sign. No matter if your sign is used outside or inside, occasional cleaning will be required. We recommend using a damp non-abrasive cloth (microfiber works well) to wipe the surface. Do not use ammonia based cleaner (such as Windex) on the acrylic as it may result in a clouded surface. Use a dry non-abrasive cloth to dry the sign.

If you need to store your frosted acrylic sign, we recommend first covering the sign with a soft fabric or packing wrap to prevent scratching the sign. Your frosted acrylic sign will last longest when installed in locations that avoid direct sunlight.

Frequently Asked Questions

Product Specs
  • What is Frosted Acrylic?
  • Frosted acrylic is a hard plastic that has a frosted finish. The graphic or design for all frosted acrylic signs are printed directly onto the frosted acrylic substrate. Like clear acrylic or polyacrylate (a type of plastic), frosted acrylic is durable and acts as a good substitute for glass signage. Although durable, frosted acrylic signs are not scratch proof nor shatter proof. Frosted acrylic signs are generally used indoors but can be used outdoors as well. Frosted acrylic signs are made using a similar material to brand names such as Plexiglas, Perspex, and Lucite.

  • Why choose frosted over clear acrylic?
  • Frosted acrylic provides an elegant look to any sign. The translucent rather than transparent material of frosted acrylic can help your design ‘pop’ and draw more attention when placed on a solid-color wall. Frosted acrylic might also be a good option for you if you have some sort of light source behind your display. When light penetrates the frosted acrylic, the translucent material distributes the light making a striking look and bringing your design to life. Both frosted and clear acrylic signs make beautiful displays for branding, directional, and office signage.

  • Why does shipping cost so much if you offer free shipping?
  • Shipping on orders over $75 is free. However, this excludes rigid signs over 36” which require special packaging. Unfortunately, the 36” threshold is a shipping industry rule of thumb and it is beyond our control in our ability to ship these large signs in any other way.

  • What are all my options when ordering a frosted acrylic sign?
  • While frosted acrylic signs are stunning by themselves, you may wonder about the additional options available to you with these signs. Perhaps the best way to display a frosted acrylic sign is by mounting the sign to a wall or surface. We offer 1/2“ diameter brushed aluminum standoffs as well as drilled holes in several configurations.

    In addition to the standoffs we offer for mounting your frosted acrylic sign, we also offer multiple cut options for your sign including square/rectangle, rounded corners (both 1” and ¼” radius), circle/oval, custom, and custom with border.

  • Can I drill my own holes?
  • Yes. You can absolutely drill your own holes if you wish. Though if you are drilling your own holes then we are unable to replace, repair or refund the sign due to any damage resulting from your efforts to drill holes. Any common drill with the proper bit will work with your acrylic sign.

  • How strong or durable is frosted acrylic?
  • Frosted acrylic is a durable glass substitute. We print your design directly onto ?” frosted acrylic material. Your design is printed using professional grade UV inks which will last a long time with proper use and care. Printed designs on frosted acrylic should remain vivid for the expected life of 5+ years with proper care.

    Acrylic is a dense plastic material and although durable—it can break or shatter if dropped onto hard surfaces. Acrylic can also scratch. We recommend using caution anytime you need to handle your acrylic sign including during installation or removal. Ask for a second set of hands to assist you if necessary.

  • Can you print double-sided on frosted acrylic?
  • No. We currently only offer single-sided prints for frosted acrylic signs.

  • Do you offer laser etching or etched frosted acrylic signs?
  • No. Instead of laser etching your design or using other etching methods to create your sign, we print your design directly onto the front surface of the frosted acrylic.

  • How long will it take to produce and ship my frosted acrylic sign?
  • We produce and print your frosted acrylic signs within 1 business day. If you order your frosted acrylic sign during business days before 3 PM MST, we’ll have your sign produced and ready to ship to you on the next business day.

  • What size should I use for my lobby or office sign? Do you have standard sizes?
  • You can have your frosted acrylic sign produced in many different shapes and sizes as small as 4” x 4” and up to 48” x 96”. For lobby or office signs, the size is really up to you. As a general suggestion aim to design your sign with the space in mind. Some common sizes for these signs are 12” x 24”, 36” x 18”, 24” x 48”, and 36” x 60”. If you’d like help determining which size will fit your space perfectly, don’t hesitate to take advantage of our professional graphic design team! Design services are free.

  • I don’t have a logo or brand designed yet. Can I get help with logo design?
  • Sure! We offer free design services to everyone. As long as you have an idea or a sketch to start from, our graphic designers can help you refine your logo or brand. Get started with our free design services!

Usage
  • What can frosted acrylic signs be used for?
  • Frosted acrylic signs are best suited to be used indoors for office, lobby, or corporate signage. Outdoor use of frosted acrylic is also possible, however we recommend that for best long-term use for outdoor signage, that the sign not be mounted in a highly exposed area as sunlight and weather may cause the sign to deteriorate over time.

    Other applications for frosted acrylic signs include directional signage, door or room number signage, directories, divider plates and more. For any application where you would want a translucent, rigid sign—choose frosted acrylic.

  • Can frosted acrylic be used outdoors?
  • Yes. Frosted acrylic signs can look great outdoors especially when they are mounted to a textured building face such as brick or wood. If possible, try to reduce the direct exposure to the sign from sunlight by mounting the sign in a covered or recessed area. Protecting the sign from elements will help to preserve the sign.

  • Will my frosted acrylic sign scratch or fade?
  • Your frosted acrylic sign should not scratch or fade with normal, everyday use. While frosted acrylic signs are designed to be a lightweight glass alternative, they do not have the same hardness as glass and should be handled with care. Acrylic will scratch if hard or sharp objects come in contact with the surface. Small scratches may be polished or buffed out, but deep scratches might be difficult to repair.

    Acrylic is a durable plastic and holds up well in the elements. Normal exposure in mild to moderate conditions should not fade your frosted acrylic sign within its normal life expectancy of 5+ years. Although frosted acrylic signs will last outdoors and with some exposure to the elements, we recommend protecting the sign as much as possible when mounting outdoors.

  • Will my frosted acrylic sign bend or break?
  • Frosted acrylic is durable, but with the right amount of force, it can crack, break or shatter. Acrylic is plastic and it will bend some without breaking. The intended use for frosted acrylic, however, is to mount the sign flat.

Installation & Care
  • How do I install my frosted acrylic sign?
  • Frosted acrylic signs can be mounted or placed both inside and out. Regardless of where they might be posted, they are generally affixed to rigid surfaces such as wood, metal, concrete or even drywall. We recommend selecting drilled holes and standoffs when ordering your sign so that you can easily post your sign in the desired spot.

    Perhaps the best way to install your frosted acrylic sign is to use standoffs. Our ½” diameter standoffs come with wall anchors and screws that can be used to post your sign. To install your sign you should drill a pilot hole before inserting the anchor. You can then drill your screw into the anchor in the rigid surface. Lastly, screw on the standoff cap for each drilled hole on your sign.

    Frosted acrylic signs can also be hung using the drilled holes and a variety of accessories including rope, bungee cord, zip ties, etc. As acrylic signs are generally a more professional sign we recommend mounting them with standoffs to obtain the best look.

  • How should I clean my frosted acrylic sign?
  • You can clean your frosted acrylic sign by using a non-abrasive wet rag or cloth with water or a mild detergent. Avoid using ammonia-based products to clean your frosted acrylic sign. Do not use paper towels or other abrasive cloths. Regular cleaning will ensure that your sign and the printed portion of the sign remain clear and vibrant.

  • How do I store my frosted acrylic sign?
  • Storing your frosted acrylic sign is very easy to do. Simply store it in a cool dry place at room temperature. Avoid scraping or rubbing it against abrasive or sharp objects to avoid scratching. If you’re storing multiple signs, we recommend covering them or inserting some kind of soft fabric in between the signs.
