acrylic fabricationNothing is more versatile than acrylic when it comes to designing and building product displays. You can put items on, in, or under acrylic. It combines beautifully with other materials, from metal to wood. And it complements virtually any merchandise from high-end jewelry to sports gear, toys to shoes. So how can acrylic fabrication enhance your product displays?

1. Add “clarity”

Acrylic provides the same benefits as glass when it comes to visibility and protection, but it’s stronger and less expensive. So you can feel more free to use it where glass might make you (or your customers) nervous. And unlike glass, acrylic can take on any shape. You can go wild with curvy display cases, racks, countertops, or shelves.

Of course, acrylic doesn’t have to be clear. It can enhance product displays with colorful accents or transform your store into a kaleidoscope of color.

2. Box it up

Acrylic can be used to create display boxes for just about anything. Use them like jewelry boxes, featuring one item per box, whether it’s tiny or large. Use cubes in different sizes as building blocks to create interesting multi-dimensional displays – on a tabletop, from the floor up, suspended from the ceiling. Create a pyramid of cubes against a wall, using the horizontal surfaces for merchandise display. Use a huge cube as a free-standing table or display case.

Fill open-sided boxes with glitter, shredded paper, candies, flowers, or coiled sparkly lights and use them as props.

Mount boxes on the wall to use as floating shelves or bins.

Boxes don’t even have to be square. Create domed enclosures that feature a single product. Or bowls that hold a handful of small items or a bushel of discounted goodies customers can paw through.

3. Think beyond the box

  • Create a 3D version of your logo to mount on the wall, or form acrylic rods into block letters or cursive to spell out your store’s name.
  • Build your cash wrap of acrylic – in a free-form shape.
  • Cut out a big red arrow and hang it from the ceiling, pointing the way to your sale area.
  • Build a free-standing colorized panel that separates departments.
  • Shape acrylic into stylish hooks and hangers.
  • Frame a digital poster or wall display.

Acrylic is so wonderfully versatile, you could, in fact, use it to custom-design the entire interior of your store. Fixtures, furniture, display accessories, “hardware,” signage.
