Acrylic Office Sign

I work for a small company in the Boston area. Being Boston there are tons of old unique buildings but ours happens to be the first industrial mill complex in the United States - its where the industrial revolution started. We have a really neat space and we’ve been there about 10 years. When we moved in a hasty sign was printed and taped to the door - 10 years later it was still there. We decided to laser cut something and my boss gave me free range to implement a design. This is what I came up with (with the help of a couple colleagues)!

It’s three layers of proofgrade acrylic sandwiched together. I think it looks pretty classy!



Everyone liked it so much I’m making a second one for our other door! up next: the door number!

Very sleek. Looking forward to seeing the door number next… no pressure! :slight_smile:

Looks fantastic. May I ask, what font is that?

Wow, that is one classy looking sign! (I think I blew past it thinking it was a pro job! Apologies!) ROFL! :grinning::+1:

How did you handle all of the small pieces inside the letters?

I scored an outline on the black sheet so I knew where to put all the little white letters. I also left the masking on to help guide. Using some slower activating super glue helped with lining things up.

Smart idea! I’ve had a few projects where keeping track of all of those small inside pieces is a bit of a challenge. This one looks like a challenge as well!

haha yes it was! I got to the office to put it together and realized I was missing the inside of an ‘A’ - it ended up in the crumb tray…

One thing I did which helped was immediately after cutting I threw a piece of masking tape over the cuts. This did a pretty good job of keeping it all together until I was ready to assemble.
