Standoff Signs

Create a dramatic 3D presentation for signage, artwork, and displays with standoffs.

A standoff attaches to a sign and secures it to a wall. But, in contrast to most hardware that attaches a sign directly to the wall, a standoff wall mount or standoff bolt from Signs Now adds a layer of air between the mounted piece and wall.

The result? A standoff — a dramatic, three-dimensional effect around the signage. This impression is often enhanced with front illumination or even backlighting!

Standoffs were originally used for indoor office signs. But, in the hands of a highly capable and creative resource like Signs Now, they're attractive and affordable ways to mount display elements of all types — including those used for promotion, identification and wayfinding.

Custom standoff options in acrylic, glass, etched glass, and plexiglass

The dramatic, 3D effect achieved by standoffs also lends itself to the creation of custom signage and displays. In fact, any number of materials can be colored, cut, polished, layered, and even illuminated to great effect!

Your solutions from Signs Now might include logos, signage, displays, and even abstract designs for lobbies, conference rooms, and executive offices. These include:

  • Acrylic signs with standoffs
  • Etched glass standoffs
  • Glass standoffs
  • Plexiglass signs and standoffs

Additional types of standoff systems

Just as the applications for standoffs expanded beyond indoor signage, so have the ways Signs Now can achieve standoff effects:

  • Standoff wall mounts: These acrylic or glass display panels standoff from a wall with spacers that may be aluminum standoffs, stainless-steel standoffs or edge-grip standoffs. Depending on the installation, tamper-proof standoffs or square standoffs are used. The terms “standoff bolts” or “standoff barrels” are also commonly applied.
  • Desktop nameplates and tabletop signage: The attractiveness and versatility of standoffs are not limited to walls. Desk nameplates and tabletop signage in small sizes but in the style of standoffs are a great way to display photos or information desks, shelves or tables.
  • Wire suspension systems or suspended cable systems: Ceiling-mount sign hanging systems or drop-ceiling sign mount systems offer additional ways we can hang your signage or displays to standoff from walls with dramatic effect!
