Plexiglass

Plexiglass – or “plex” for short – produces some of the more beautiful sign faces with its high gloss surface and sophisticated appearance. Plexiglass has a smooth, professional appearance and works equally well indoors as outdoors. Available as opaque, most plex is translucent making it the sign material of choice for backlit lightbox signs; typical of shopping centers, pole signs, restaurants, retail stores and office complexes. Unlike Lexan, plex is breakable and can be destroyed by vandals or hail storms.
