Austin Signs | Building Signs, Acylic and Vinyl


Recently, we installed a sign for Altogen Labs.  For this project we used two different types of exterior signage to meet our client’s needs.

For the building façade we used cut acrylic.  Cut acrylic is a great option for non-illuminated exterior signage.  For this project we used one half inch thick acrylic painted black.  Using the acrylic is less expensive than using a painted aluminum or bronze and will withstand the elements.  Acrylic also comes in many colors and can be painted to meet any customer requirement.  For this sign, the lettering was pretty straight forward; however the logo was a microscope and was a little more intricate.  While the microscope may look like one piece of acrylic, however it is actually six pieces.  Using the acrylic allowed us to cut the individual section of the microscope’s slides, knob and lens.  The letters and logo are all stud mounted to the concrete façade of the building.

For the building’s entrance we used cut vinyl.  Cut vinyl is the standard window graphic material.  Using cut vinyl allowed us to copy the logo and apply it to the front entrance.  We used high performance vinyl which has a lifespan of about seven years outdoors.

At 360 Signs we are your one stop shop for all your building signage.  If you have your logo and graphics, we can print and install them.  If you are looking for design work, we can accommodate those needs as well.
