You just bought the signage of your dreams for your special event!!! It’s exactly what you wanted and you can’t wait for your guests to walk into your event and be greeted by this gorgeous piece.

…now what??

Acrylic signage has become a hot commodity for all kinds of specialty events – baby showers, birthdays, bridal showers, weddings – you name it and there’s a Pinterest board out there filled with signage ideas. If you’re in the midst of event planning and are thinking of purchasing one of these gems or already have, here is everything you need to know to take care of your acrylic sign properly before the big day.

  1. Keep it covered in a safe place.

Unlike glass, acrylic is a durable plastic that is unlikely to break, however, it does easily scratch. If your sign was shipped to you, it is probably in secure packaging designed to protect it, so keep it covered in its package in a safe place you’ll remember.

  1. Decide how you’ll display it.

Acrylic signs are STUNNING additions to your event, so go the extra mile to show it off for all to see. I suggest investing in or renting an easel to do the trick. Easels come in a variety of styles and sizes for different purposes, so do your research and choose the one that suits your needs and accomplishes “the look” best. *Pro Tip: pay attention to the maximum weight the easel is designed to hold. Quality acrylic signs can sometimes be heavy, so consider asking your designer how much your sign will weigh.

  1. Designate someone to transport the sign to your event. It’s important to make a detailed game plan for setting up major events like the one you’re planning. Think ahead and put a trustworthy friend or family member in charge of getting the sign to the venue to eliminate unnecessary stress, so your day centers around celebrating – like it should!
  2. Have Windex on hand!

Using Windex and a paper towel to remove any finger smudges will help your dream sign shine the day of! This is a safe way to clean acrylic signs depending on how it was made. Reach out to your designer to ensure this is a viable option for you!

Well, there you have it, friends! Now that we’ve covered these steps, you’re prepared to handle your sign with ease. Go out there and celebrate the big day, rest assured your vision will come to life!!
