Glass and acrylic make for unique, eye catching donor recognition displays that lend themselves well to any design aesthetic. With so many options for customization, each has its own benefits.
Acrylic: Versatility is the main reason we specialize in designing with acrylic; the options are unlimited. Acrylic is a transparent plastic material with incomparable strength that present glass-like qualities such as transparency (if desired), longevity, and brilliance—but with the impact resistance several times that of glass, and half the weight It can be made with any color, and is usually less expensive in fabrication and in transportation. Bottom line: acrylic has the look of glass, but with added safety, strength, and durability due to its chemical make-up. We recommend using our digital printers to maximize color on this material. It has no sharp corners and is safe for use around areas with children. Acrylic has no limit when it comes to imagination – if you can dream it, we can do it!
Glass: Offering sophistication, timelessness, and class, glass is perfect for a static donor recognition display that will not need to be changed at any point. From room naming plaques, to 20 foot long recognition displays – glass is a universally pleasing material at any size. A benefit of glass is engraving. Sandblasting your words in this material brings out its dimensionality and light catching angles.
Plexiglas is unique and eye catching and lends itself well to any design style. With planning, the inherent difficulties of adding engraved names can be overcome either by adding engraved pieces or using high quality name transfers affixed to the back of the glass or Plexiglas.
Plexiglas is much lighter weight than glass and easier to cut into different shapes. It’s usually less expensive in fabrication and transportation. Plexiglas can do anything that you would use glass for with more safety.
