When the time comes to tie the knot, you want every detail to be special, including the signage you choose. With acrylic wedding signs, you can create the dazzling look of your dreams without straining your budget.
What Are Acrylic Wedding Signs?
Wherever you need to organize a group of people, signage can make a big difference, and weddings are no exception to this basic rule. After all, a wedding is an event, and any event needs signage.
Until not so long ago, the choices to print wedding signs were only paper or cardboard. However, digital printing has opened up a world of new possibilities and now your signs can be as unique as your love story.
One of the most interesting developments in digital printing is the ability to print on translucent acrylic. The effect is ethereal, elegant, and simply irresistible—in short, ideal for weddings.
In the next sections, we’ll take a look at some types of acrylic wedding signs, along with some tips to customize them.
As you check out these ideas, keep in mind that while most printshops can only print acrylic signs in white, at CR&A Custom our cutting-edge printers can produce full-color acrylic signs, giving you even more options to impress your guests.
Acrylic Wedding Invitations
One of the great things about organizing a wedding is that your guests can begin experiencing its atmosphere before the ceremony even begins.
Your invitations give guests a taste of what’s to come and serve as a symbol of your relationship with them: this is one of the most important events of your life and you want them to be there!
Acrylic invitations allow interesting combinations of textures and materials. Here are some examples:
- Deliver your acrylic invitations in boxes instead of envelopes.
- The boxes may be lined with a textured fabric, or filled with materials that go with the theme of your wedding (for example, leaves, glitter, or sand).
- Take advantage of full-color printing on acrylic and display a vibrant image, such as flowers or a landscape.
Acrylic Wedding Welcome Signs
As the name suggests, this sign serves as a visual greeting to your guests.
Being one of the first things your family and friends will see, you want your welcome sign to be memorable while reflecting the style of your wedding.
Whether you are going for an elegant ceremony, a nautical wedding, or a rustic one, an acrylic sign is an excellent way to get things off to a great start from a visual standpoint.
To display your acrylic welcome sign, just prop it on an easel, making sure that the area behind the sign contrasts with the color you chose for the letters. For example, if the letters on your sign are light, the area behind it should be of a darker color to ensure that guests can read the text.
Acrylic Seating Chart
A seating chart is a list of guests arranged in alphabetical order by last name, with each person’s assigned table number beside their name.
This is a good example of how signage can make things a lot easier and ensure that your wedding goes as smoothly as possible.
Paper or cardboard seating charts can be boring and visually cumbersome. They have been around for ages, so no matter how original a cardboard chart is, chances are good that your guests have seen something similar in the past.
Acrylic seating charts, on the other hand, are breezy, elegant, and innovative. Additionally, they can be displayed in more interesting ways than their paper counterparts, for example, by suspending them in front of natural or synthetic foliage, or by mounting them on a stable structure such as a cube or easel.
Acrylic Escort/Place Cards and Table Numbers
With so many people together and so much joy to go around, things can get confusing during a wedding reception. Luckily, signage offers a solution for that as well.
Take, for example, escort cards and place cards. Both serve similar functions, with some important differences. Place cards are used to mark the specific place at the table where a guest must sit. By contrast, escort cards are placed in groupings near the entrance of the reception space and direct guests to a table without specifying the seat.
Whichever option you choose, printing your escort/place cards and table numbers on acrylic creates a consistently stunning look that will charm your guests and contribute to an even more memorable experience.
Translucent menus are the final touch to an unforgettable evening.
Unobtrusive and original, acrylic menus bring the visual atmosphere you have created right to your guests’ tables, opening up more possibilities to wow friends and family with your creativity and inventiveness.
Feel free to mix and match textures and materials in order to achieve unique results. Translucent acrylic goes with everything, so the sky is the limit! Here’s a non-exhaustive list of materials you may consider using:
- Patterned fabric
- Natural or synthetic flowers/leaves
- Metallic applications
And if you want to keep things minimalistic, acrylic-only menus are an elegant solution that blends innovation and an almost classic sense of style.
