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!

PVC sign care

Have you had your PVC sign for a while, and is it starting to look a little worn out? No worries—just freshen up your sign’s look with a new coat of paint!

If you’re in the mood for a change, that’s fine too. Not only can our PVC letters and logos be painted a wide variety of colors, they can also include a high gloss, semi-gloss, or matte finish to best suit your needs.
