What is custom plexiglass? It is a trademarked name for what is commonly known as acrylic glass. It is used as an alternative because of the fact it doesn’t shatter like glass does. It’s also more cost effective than the alternative, which makes it a highly popular type of material to work with for many projects. The material itself is much lighter, and again this makes working with it easier. Another thing that sets it apart from glass is the fact that the heavier the material, the greener the tint will be with it. This is not a factor with acrylic or custom plexiglass. It tends to be extremely transparent even at greater thicknesses, and it will not yellow over time.
Another great attribute that custom plexiglass offers over the alternative is the fact that it is very easily molded into many exciting and different shapes. This is important if you want a display that might be a little different than the typical square or rectangular size. Because it is acrylic, the seams magically melt away giving you a seamless, flawless look with the final production.
In order to make a great custom plexiglass display, you want to make sure that the company that you hire has the experience, know-how, training and expertise to get the job done. They are sure to have examples of their work in their showroom along with portfolios that show customized jobs that they have done for their other clients. You can get an idea of whether or not they are going to be able to do the display to your individual specifications by viewing what they have done with other orders in the past. Pay attention to the level of sophistication that was necessary to make a great final product, and whether or not they hit the mark in your opinion as you view photographs and samples of their work. Ask if they have any references that they would give you so that you can perhaps go and check out what their work looks like in its finished state sitting in an office, business, organization or store. Any reputable company will be more than happy to furnish you with these references.
Lastly, make sure that this company has a commitment to honoring their timelines, their estimates and their guarantees. Be sure to ask plenty of questions when discussing what your individual needs are, and be open about your own ideas when it comes to the display. The more you are able to share with your technician, the more information they have to work with and the better the chance that you will communicate exactly what you want.
Custom plexiglass can be turned into a beautiful display case that meets all your needs and expectations, and it will remain beautiful for years to come. It is especially nice to know that your storage needs can be met by using a product that doesn’t break as easily as typical glass would. This is a safe and convenient option that will be beautifully transparent for displaying your wares.
