A flat, smooth, plastic material used for many applications. Clear acrylic (plexi-glass) was brought to market as a durable substitute for glass. It is very sturdy and can endure a fair amount of wear. There are a variety of acrylic finishes, including translucent, white and a rainbow of colors.
Corporate offices to theatres, chances are you have seen acrylic panels mounted in a hallway, behind a front desk or on a building exterior. Maximum standard size sheet is 4’ x 8’. Acrylic (thickness) options include: 1/4”, 1/8”, 3/8” (most common), and 1/2”.
“We knew we wanted to print our logo to acrylic but wasn’t sure where to start. Cushing was a great help with consulting, printing and final installation. The signage came out great!”
“We chose Cushing to enhance our interior signage and awards display at our Chicago office based on their excellent reputation and experience doing similar work. It made a huge difference.”
With careful handling (using protective material lining to avoid dirt and finger prints), your graphics can be printed on acrylic panels as translucent or reflective images using a 4’ x 8’ flatbed printer. Using four-inch strips of tiny inkjets, high quality images appear in minutes as the print heads are carried over the media, held in place on a vacuum table.
With the recent introduction of white ink, reverse printed images can be backed up with a white layer to create a reflective image or to create a light diffuser for back-lit signs. Crisp and colorful graphics are printed directly to the substrate to suit just about any interior environment or most outdoor signage installations.
Regarding Glass: Cushing often produces vinyl-cut or vinyl printed graphics and adheres this imagery to glass, on location. Graphics can be printed reverse-reading and adhered to glass and acrylic to protect the image.
“Just unpacked the Chicago CTA @ Night acrylic and as I have come to expect, your team has done an excellent job. It won't be mounted at the site for another few weeks, but I am sure the client will love it. Thanks for another great job.”

Know your Acrylic Specifications
If you don’t have these, a Cushing representative is happy to perform a site survey at your location.
Make your Measurements Precise
Do this for both imagery and layout on pre-cut materials to avoid remakes! If measurement adjusting is necessary, there is a chance
the acrylic will need to be printed again, which can be costly. We can help keep this process smooth the first time.
Plan it Out
Materials require 5-10 days for cutting, finishing edges and drilling holes for mounts. This is not a “rush job” consideration.
“Your team have been great to work with and we can’t wait to get our new acrylic signage up! It’s going to take our showroom to the next level.”
While there isn’t one particular customer looking for digital printing on acrylic, some want to permanently represent their brand or showcase special facts about their organization. Others need to recognize partners or a charitable donation. Or they simply want to have a graphic engage the person visiting their office.
