It’s not just the design and materials of a sign that makes an impact to those that see it. It is also the way it’s installed. One sign that is extremely popular for its low price and high impact is what’s known as a “standoff sign.” The way standoff signs are constructed and installed adds a 3D layer to the overall 2D design by pushing it forward from the installation surface. Standoff signs are able to catch the eye while also conveying a professional image to the viewer.

For wall signs that stand out, a standoff sign can achieve an eye-catching look without a high cost. These signs, which are either 2D or 3D, are mounted in such a way that the signs are placed away from the surface, rather than flush against it, so that they “stand off” from the wall. They work well for everything from displaying a company name to labeling room and floor numbers.
Standoff signs allow for ample customization, from size, to shape, to color(s) and more. This is largely due to the wide variety of materials they can be made with. Acrylic is the most requested material, as it is the most cost-effective and easy to print a design on, although other materials, like glass, can cultivate a modern look and be customized with varying levels of opacity.
Standoff signs can be designed with almost any material, and are frequently made with:
They’re differentiated from other similar forms of signage by the way they’re installed: with screws that hold the sign about an inch away from the wall to create a visually interesting display. That makes them not only a useful choice for traditional signs, but also for materials like glass that typically look unusual when flush with a flat surface.
The screws are both functional and design oriented: they safely and securely hold the sign to the wall, and are often chosen to match the sign with complementary colors. They hold the sign from the wall at a distance of anywhere from 0.5 inches to 1.5 inches or more. The further out they stand from the wall, the more shadow they will have.
Other customization options include:
Standoff signs can also be backlit. Adding lighting to the sign is considered very modern, and a look that is popular in the technology and BTB sector. Lighting can be LED or neon, and come in most common colors.
