Acrylic Fabrication of signs and letters

// July 15th, 2014 // No Comments » // Services

We manufacture

3D Signs either non illuminated or internally lit with a solid or halo lit effect.
We can provide foam, MDF and acrylic lettering as well as simple cut out faces.
Whether it be for your in house overflow or because you have all your fabrication outsourced, we can provide the service that’s right for you.


ACM Signage

An ACM brushed silver comp panel sign with push through lettering – black faces and opal returns.
It gives a halo effect when the LEDs are illuminated. An extremely modern, clean and effective use of materials , that give an eye catching result. The customer will always be pleased.
Whether you would like us to install the LEDs or just manufacture the signage, we are happy to supply.
There are a vast array of colours now available in the ACM material used.

Fabricated letters or 3D building signs

Showcase Plastics can create custom fabricated letters and logos. Your logo will stand out individually off the surface they are applied to.

They can add a lot of dimension to any logo, especially if they are illuminated.
They can be fully acrylic, have aluminium faces, acrylic faces on polystyrene bases even, many many options can be selected.



Anytime Fitness is yet another franchise most of us would recognize. Yet, another example of 3D lettering and LED’s we had installed in-house. A transparent opal face (as opposed to using a solid white) allows the LED’s to illuminate much brighter than a solid colour would allow. The faces of each letter here were cut on the CNC router, and the client has used a purple vinyl on top of the ‘running man’ logo, which too was cut from opal – allowing it to shine through both the acrylic and vinyl overlay.

Large or small 3D lettering comes out of the workshop, look into 3D letters on your next job.

These KK letters are bright, led illuminated and eye catching – nothing more for the sign company to do, other than install the job.

Restaurants and shops alike- always need to catch the customers eye.
ZIN VIE stands out for all the right reasons. Tell your customers 3D is not out of their reach.

Lettering often requires being painted from the rear- this is a silver finish, achieved on site by our experienced painter.

Letters, letters and more letters. Our specialty is definitely our 3D letters, illuminated or non illuminated. Ask for a quote.

One we all recognise.

Digital printing

“It was amazing! absolutely perfect. We had ordered it and it was turned around within a fortnight. I’d purchased overseas, but the quality of this was over and above what I’d had. Many others are going to be ordering these as they were very impressed”

J. Taylor.

  • Tradeshow Display

Custom made displays such as this tiered, elevated display out of acrylic and white expanded PVC, easily managed with curved shape by the use of our CNC router. Also the lecterns in black acrylic that were made for use at Crowns Gold Class for an event. These had a removable black cover to slip over two at a time turning the trays into a flat surface.


We have made many custom products, the strangest of which was a coffin, and one of the nicest was this anchor.
We just need a plan and specs and many things can be done with acrylic and Perspex.
Maybe broaden your horizons, logos don’t have to be in the most basic forms.
Showcase pieces, bespoke or a run of something are all possible.

For the old world globe effect- but with a new age LED set up.


If you would like to purchase LEDS and transformers we are happy to supply. We are also happy to manufacture lettering or illuminated acrylic boxes with LEDs installed

Colour changing LEDs, can make a great light-box even more unique. With a handy remote, to control the lighting. It has the option to be many colours or one colour at the touch of a button. Normal power outlet is all that’s required.

Here’s just a close-up of how we embed our LED’s to give the best illumination with no dark/bright spots. Our LED work is superior.

Displayed above is one of many varieties of light-box we produce. This black, composite panel light box, is illuminated. Using thick, opal lettering as push-through letters, the letters themselves light up, while the black composite panel is coated with a solid white inside — allowing luminescent acrylic letters to shine. The box itself, a single, piece of composite panel encapsulates the LED’s and the required transformer. The acrylic lettering is adhered from behind, and the lightweight material is a sturdy, light-weight alternative to to the solid acrylic light-boxes we’re so often fabricating. Composite panel can be both waterproof and weatherproof; it won’t fade, and similar to acrylic: it’s much stronger than glass. Composite panel is neither transparent nor frosted, but a solid color (black, white, mirror/silver, gold).
