Graphic Arts & Signage
Sending The Better Message.
We believe creating signage is both an art and science—and we’re here to help you incorporate both into your signs. The key is to start with the right sign sheet, reel, and enclosure material for your project, and then bring it to life with creative visual solutions. Who says you can’t have form and function?
Looking for enhanced features or new product development? Let us help that effort with a full suite of services for development, prototypes, production, and testing with our expert team at our world-class Innovation Center.
Spartech offers a variety of materials—everything from impact modified acrylic, polycarbonate and copolyester to specialty ABS—to create signs that can stand up to outdoor weather conditions while still allowing for aesthetic forming and fabrication. For indoor projects, we’ll help you determine just the right products to create the look and functionality you desire.
With our 50+ years of proven expertise in developing interior and exterior signage, you can feel comfortable trusting us to provide solutions that accomplish your goals for timing, quality, and budget. We offer multiple chemistries, superior ink adhesion, and adherence to UL/SAM standards to ensure your project outcomes are satisfactory. Even better, we’ll help you keep your project sustainable with bio-based resin products, created through our innovative PLA technology.
Solutions for Graphics Arts & Signage
Whether you’re creating outdoor signage that must withstand heat, weather, and rough conditions or promotional indoor signage that needs to “wow” customers, we'll draw from our extensive product lines to formulate just the right solution for your needs.
Crylex® is the preferred material for rigid formed sign faces when both weatherability and impact strength are required. It’s tough enough to withstand the typical abuses of sign fabrication and installation, while still retaining its color, clarity and resistance to harsh outdoor environments.
- Lenticular APET — This clear, print-grade plastic sheet has a series of longitudinal lenses extruded into the surface that can produce a 3D, flip, animation, or morph effects.
- Lenticular PETG — This clear, print-grade plastic sheet has a series of longitudinal lenses extruded into the surface that can produce a 3D, flip, animation, or morph effects.
- Lenticular Sheet — Our lenticular material is a clear, print-grade plastic sheet that has a series of longitudinal lenses extruded into the surface that can produce 3-D, flip, animation, or morph effects.
PolyPrime® products are graphic arts quality, extruded high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) sheets. They are durable and easy to convert for a variety of product applications such as signs, POP displays, and OEM applications, and are available in a variety of sizes and gauges as well as many stock colors.
