Why Awards and Plaque Engravers Should Choose Plexiglass

Those in the business of engraving would do well to understand the distinctive qualities of materials such as plexiglass when it comes to these purposes. They are superior to glass in several ways, including:

  • Durability: This is one of the biggest arguments in favor of engraving plastic sheets such as plexiglass into plaques and awards, not only from an engraver's point of view but the end client's as well. A glass award might shatter or get chipped should it happen to be dropped. Metal objects might leave unsightly scratches upon them. With glass, it's usually a matter of when, and not if, any such misfortune occurs. With plexiglass and acrylic materials, such worries become obsolete. They are high-quality, shatter-proof materials designed to take any knocks and bumps with no visible damage.
  • Clarity: One of the most persistent myths regarding plastic engraving is that it does not offer the same levels of clarity and sharpness one gets with glass plaques and awards. This is a false assumption. The quality and optical clarity of modern plexiglass and acrylic are practically indistinguishable from glass in these regards. The finished product will be just as impressive as any you could produce with glass.
  • Ease of use: Engraving tools have developed to such an extent over the years that they might look positively easy to the casual observer. In reality, quality engraving calls for a certain degree of skill and experience. Certain materials such as glass and steel make the task more complicated, especially when the required engraving is uncommon or complicated. The responsiveness of plexiglass makes them a joy to work with, allowing engravers to focus on delivering the very best finished product.
  • Lightweight nature: The fact that plexiglass engraving and other cut-to-size plastic options are so much lighter than glass or metal presents two undeniable advantages. They are, for one, more easily manipulated throughout the engraving, transportation through to the presentation stage. Secondly, this characteristic makes them much less of a risk to have in the typical home. A plexiglass award toppling off a bookshelf is much less of a threat to you or your loved one's health than a metal or glass piece.
  • Lower Costs: Managing overhead costs will be a concern for any awards and plaque engraving professionals out there. This is an area where plexiglass can help.
    The initial cost of these plastics in their raw form will be significantly lower than glass or metal. Aside from this, you will incur fewer costs in terms of labor hours, power consumption, and the wearing down of tools. You will be able to increase your profit margins and transfer some savings to your clients, providing them with a bargain in these challenging times.
  • High Gloss Finish - For those who prefer a mat finish, we also offer frosted acrylic sheets.
  • Easy to Clean - the smooth surfaces can be cleaned using warm soapy water and a cloth; making it minimal maintenance, perfect for today’s busy workforce.
