Dimensional Plastic (PVC) Letters, Logos & Signs
Similar to acrylic, painted Dimensional Plastic PVC letters are a very common form of exterior signage. Available in ten different colors, PVC comes in six different thicknesses, ranging from 1/8” thick up to 1” thick. When painted, PVC letters and logos have a finished, professional look. The letters can be painted in high gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish to complement the look of your building exterior. Paint colors are virtually unlimited. PVC signs are widely used for address numbers, as this material can take abuse from birds and weather, and when they start looking tired, they can be freshened up with a coat of paint! Painted PVC letters will outlast foam.
If you’re looking for a way to make your business name stand out from the crowd and make passersby do a double take, then PVC signs are definitely for you. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) letters, dimensional letters, Trovicel®, and Sintra® are all excellent choices for businesses looking to draw attention to their logos or catch a potential client’s eye.
PVC signs show your customers a high-quality, professional image—and while they might not sound as cool as more expensive signage materials, they are just as effective. After all, it’s difficult to tell whether a sign is metal, acrylic, foam, or even plastic once it’s been painted!
PVC sign letters are easy to install and transport, and they’re also equally suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Our PVC signs come in ten different colors, but don’t worry—if you have a specific color in mind, PVC signs look great when painted (and paint colors are nearly unlimited!), making it easy to customize and suit your specific needs. Additionally, PVC signs are capable of reducing glare and hiding fingerprints. They can also be easily cut into specific shapes, making PVC the ideal choice for custom designs or applications.
What is PVC?
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is the “third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer in the world.” Formed in flat sheets in a variety of thicknesses and a multitude of colors, PVC is often expanded to provide additional thickness without exponentially increasing the cost or minimizing effectiveness. PVC is a durable and versatile material well-suited for signage, whether it be indoors or outdoors.
What to use PVC signs for
PVC letters are suited for a wide range of applications, such as point-of-purchase displays or menu boards. If you’re seeking a design that’s a little bit bigger, PVC is also a good choice for directional and informational signs, like address numbers. Our PVC materials come in six different thicknesses, ranging from 1/8” thick to 1” thick—regardless of what you choose, your PVC sign will be sure to draw attention to your business.
How to make PVC signs more eye-catching
The point of a nicely designed sign is to draw customers’ attention. There are, however, several ways to increase the effectiveness of an already-effective sign and bring it to life!
Some of these methods include adding stripes or borders, using bent easels (self-supporting signage), or emphasizing your logo. Other potential options—thanks to the versatility and customizable nature of PVC signs—involve adding lettering colors, using 3D lettering, decorating the sign with digital graphics, or using an unusual sign shape or design. Yet another popular option is utilizing a multi-layered effect, lending a sense of depth, shadow, and elegance to your PVC sign. The choices truly are limitless!
