2D signs or two-dimensional signs have only one surface on which the message is printed/engraved. 2D signs can be seen only from one direction.
On the other hand, 3D signs or 3-dimensional signs project outwards from the surface. They are printed on two sides. Our Projecting V-Shape Acrylic Sign is angular and offers superior visibility when approached from an angle. Projecting 3D signs are great for the middle of a hallway or aisles where traffic comes from either direction, and one can’t see what’s there in the middle. Our projecting signs have an innovative 74° bend (versus a 90° bend).
We use contracted Braille which is also called Grade 2 Braille, on all our Braille Signs. Grade 2 Braille complies with ADA as well as California Braille specifications too. The California standard is also valid nationwide. Grade 2 is not a “letter for letter” translation of the text; it contains 265 contractions, single characters used to represent whole words or groups of letters.
DiamondPlate Employees Only Signs come either in black or gold. If you’re looking for more color options, you can use one of our templates from our Custom DiamondPlate Signs where you’ll get two more color options - Red and Dark Blue. The anodized aluminum plates feature graphics that are embedded into the pores of the aluminum. The 20 mil thick signs come with 3M adhesive and withstand constant abuse and abrasion due to people touching the sign surface when opening or closing the door.
Select-a-Color Engraved Signs - These are made of 60 mil thick, weather-resistant plastic. Signs are just thicker than a US quarter. Indoor Engraved Signs come with an acrylic layer on the top, while Outdoor Engraved Signs have a textured surface.
ShowCase™ Signs - are made of 125 mil thick acrylic. ShowCase signs are primarily for indoor use but can be used outdoors too for approximately 3 years. It's recommended to mount the sign in an area that isn't constantly exposed to sunlight and on a smooth surface receptive to adhesive.
From the thickness point of view, ShowCase signs are a clear winner. However, both sign materials have different applications and you must review all the features before deciding which one works best for their application. Call our sign experts to help you decide the best fit!
