Custom Shaped Outdoor Signs

For the summer of 2019-2020, we had the opportunity to design, create, print, and cut out some awesome custom shaped outdoor signs for a brand new waterpark located in Chincoteague, VA.  Plak That created multiple prints on PVC, aluminum, and acrylic materials that were placed throughout the park for informational, directional, and decor use.  We chose these types of materials for there excellent outdoor durability and cutting ability.  These characteristics of the material along with our UV printing technology allowed us to produce very durable and weatherproof signs.  This was especially important in a waterpark setting as surfaces are constantly getting wet and exposed to the environments for years to come.  A variety of different sizes and shapes were used that really pushed our creative  and production capabilities.  We were able to use our CNC router to cut out different shapes and sizes for signs around the waterpark.  A highlight of the project was scale surfboard cutouts made from PVC that was used as height meters for the different water rides.

PVC Custom Shaped Outdoor Signs

PVC Custom Shaped Outdoor Signs are a great option if you are looking for durable and waterproof signage.  The majority of prints that we created and printed for Maui Jack’s Waterpark was printed on PVC.   PVC is a plastic polymer material that is slightly flexible, waterproof, and naturally white.  It is a great option to print on if you are looking for outdoor signage.  PVC can be cut into a variety of different shapes and sizes and is lightweight for easy handling and wall hanging.  Because of these characteristics, Maui Jack’s choose to use PVC for most of their outdoor signage.  We were able to create some pretty amazing prints and signs including directional and informational signage.

Aluminum Composite Custom Shaped Outdoor Signs

A revolutionary material that we work with on a lot of projects is Aluminum Composite Material or ACM.  This type of material consists of three layers of material “sandwiched” together to create a panel that is high strength, lightweight, and rigid.  It creates the perfect outdoor printable material especially for large signage.  For Maui Jack’s Waterpark, we designed and printed their instructions board as well as a small logo cut out for them.  ACM prints and cuts beautifully and lasts years to come.
