Acrylic Glass Artworks v. Glass Artworks

 Signarture Pink Cockatoo Acrylic Glass Artwork

Many people, on first seeing our perspex artworks, assume that they are made of glass. The material certainly appears similar, but it's actually acrylic glass.

Perspex and Plexiglas are two of the leading brand names of acrylic glass, which is the hard, transparent form of a plastic whose chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA.

As the material base for our signature, transparent artworks, acrylic glass has several advantages over glass:

1. It's less than half of the weight of glass, making it both more economic to transport and easier to install.

2. It has ten times greater impact strength than glass, making it far safer to transport and far safer to handle.

3. It transmits less UV light than glass, providing more protection for the artwork which will retain its true colour and vibrancy far longer, whether hung inside or out.

4. Acrylic glass is the most transparent material available and with superior optical qualities, it's genuinely crystal clear, even clearer than conventional glass.

To that last point, acrylic glass simply transmits more light than glass. Up to 92% of visible light is transmitted through acrylic. Mineral glass transmits 80-90%, depending on type of glass and manufacturer. Standard 'float' glass has a characteristic green tinge, whilst low iron, Starphire glass comes much closer to the clarity of acrylic.

What about sustainability and recycling?

We produce all our artworks to order, which is a highly sustainable approach to manufacturing as it avoids material waste, and our standard sizes are engineered for 100% utilisation of a full sheet. Properly cared for, the artworks will last for decades.

But if and when there's no longer a place for them, what are your options for recycling?

1. First off, we would suggest you look to on-sell or donate the artwork. If you don't want to handle the sale, or know of anyone setting up a new home, think charitably: there are always deserving blank walls out there in your local community.

2. If that isn't an option, maybe because it's been severely damaged, the good news is that the material can be recycled. 

Acrylic is classified as a Group 7 plastic and recycled acrylic PMMA has wide ranging applications across a number of industrial sectors from construction to medical. The challenge you may run into is that Group 7 plastics aren't always collected for recycling by local councils.

We certainly wouldn't like to see any of them going to landfill so, if it's proving difficult for you to organize, get in touch: we should be able to direct you to a material distributor with a recycling program in place.

Buying Artworks Online from the USA or Canada?

Are you visiting our online art gallery from Canada or the USA?

Having shipped our signarture artworks right across the continent of North America, from California to Connecticut, we not only know that you're more likely to call acrylic glass 'plexiglas' rather than 'perspex', we know what's really important to you:

Dollar Pricing

Our native dollars are different, and you'll love our prices all the more once you've clicked the little dropdown box at the top right and selected USD or CAD.

Imperial Sizing

Like Canada, Australia has moved on from imperial to metric, but we get you in the USA! Here's the conversion for all our standard sizes. For absolute accuracy, divide centimetres by 2.54 to get inches.

Convert Signarture Artwork Sizes from Metric to Imperial

Paint Colour Standards

Yes, we speak Benjamin Moore. Should you wish to colour customise, or just be absolutely sure what colours our artworks are, we've got you covered.

International Shipping

Add any artwork to the cart and you can preview shipping charges by entering your country and zip code, and rest assured you'll be able to track delivery from dispatch to your door.

Communication

Thankfully, we do speak the same language. Well, almost ;) 

If you'd like our advice on selecting the perfect artwork for your place or project, please don't hesitate to get in touch and depending on your time-zone we can even set up a call.

The Easy Way to an Introduce Greenery

oversize signarture kuranda canvas

Bringing the outside in is an enduring trend contributing to Pantone's choice of Greenery as the colour of 2017. If you're lucky enough to be surrounded by lush, natural greenery, then employing floor to ceiling glass or expansive windows to connect you to nature may be all you need.

But where the views are more challenging, and that connection to nature is lost, introducing living green walls, botanically-themed wallpaper, artworks or accent pieces is the way to go.

And whilst painting or wallpapering takes plenty of preparation and a fair chunk of time if you're going to do it yourself, hanging an artwork takes less than an hour, has an immediate impact and a transformative effect on your space.

If you didn't get around to it over the Christmas / New year break, then the four day Easter holiday is often seen as the perfect opportunity to inject some new life into your home - the literal meaning of 'renovate'.

Finding that artwork that you love, complements your colour scheme, and is available in the right size for your space now takes a lot less time. You won't need to walk into a hundred gallery spaces searching for the one.

With our bespoke approach, Signarture solves all your usual artwork dilemmas by making it possible for you to order exactly the combination of artwork / colour / shape and size you need.

If you fall in love with any of our designs, you can very easily make it your own by customising it to suit your space.

There are many more than fifty shades of green, but what ever shade of green you like - fir, spruce, moss, jade, teal, apple, emerald - you'll find they are all super easy to specify.

Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 : Greenery

Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 featured in Signarture Perspex Artwork Burrawang

Pantone, the global colour authority, have just announced their 'Colour of the Year' for 2017: Greenery 15-0343.

Symbolic of the prevalent global culture, the colour of the year is an expression of the collective mood and attitude.

According to the Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, the colour provides reassurance amidst the social and political turmoil and satisfies our need to rejuvenate, reconnect with nature, with each other and with a larger purpose.

We've been observing this innate craving for a connection to the natural world as the antidote to modern urban life for several years now. Greenery is nature’s neutral and is already well represented in our Treescape and Outside In collections.

This particular shade, Greenery 15-0343, is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. It is illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, that signals that it's time to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is a natural for application to interior design, as shown in this installation of our 'burrawang' treescape in colourway 77 on display at our showroom partner Cosh Living's Sydney showroom.

As Eiseman says, "Open spaces in interior and exterior design and floor-to-ceiling windows allow the green outdoors to become part of a room’s backdrop and ambiance. Adding Greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of color, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors. Bringing the outside in, the shade—like the plant life it represents—can improve self-esteem, reduce anxiety and heighten awareness of one’s surroundings".
