Plastic signs are popular types of signs because they have many uses and can be displayed in many locations.

One type of plastic sign is acrylic that is often used indoors such as hanging on doors and throughout hallways. Just look inside offices, stores, hospitals, schools and the professional signs are often acrylic signs.
The acrylic signs have holes drilled in them on each edge to allow them to be attached to a display surface. This makes them easy to mount for display. They could be hanging ones as well. A plastic sign has UV protection and are made of a strong waterproof material. These plastic signs are designed to be lit up, but it is not a requirement.

These signs are commonly made into small and medium sizes. Small signs are usually on the wall and are 1/8 inches thick with medium ones being 3/16 inches as a traditional clear acrylic sign can be up to an inch thick. Signage makers can make any size of acrylic sign as well as a variety of shapes.
