Polishing Acrylic is rather easy if you have the right technique. There are 2
ways to polish acrylic, using a Buffing Wheel and using a Propane
When polishing acrylic with a buffing wheel, you should start by
jointing the edge of the acrylic for a nice smooth finish. If a jointed is not
available use 400 grit sandpaper to accomplish this. Then using a soft wheel
gently polish the edges of the acrylic, do not use too much pressure or you will
“burn” or “melt” the acrylic.
The other method used to polish acrylic or plexiglass is to
flame polish. Again joint the edge of the acrylic or sand it with 400 grit
sandpaper. Then with a propane torch with the tip held about 1/2″ away from the
acrylic melt the acrylic moving quickly so you do not burn the acrylic and leave
a bubbled edge. This takes some technique to accomplish.

Gluing acrylic is easy when you use the right glue and techniques.
To glue acrylic or plexiglass you need to buy the special adhesives for gluing, a
popular brand is Weld On who make a variety of glues for different purposes.
Also for gluing small projects you can use Super Glue.
The acrylic edge needs to be as smooth as possible to form a nice clear bond and you can either put the glue on the edge with a artist brush, Qtip or on large joints a syring using
capillary action of the solution.

There are a few items to think about when designing a custom display to suit your needs.
1. Is there a similar stock product you can work off of, this makes it easier for the manufacturer to come up with a competitive and quick price when you use an existing stock display as the starting point.
2. The quantity of displays you will need produced.
3. If the unit is completely custom a simple hand sketch with dimensions will help the process a lot. It doesn’t have to be drawn by an artist, just a simple sketch. Like they say “pictures say a 1000 words”.
4. Size of the area the display will be put in, type of environment, there is a difference between a display you would use in a doctor’s office compared to a display for a high traffic store like Walmart
5. Estimated target budget per display. Have a realistic budget and design, a good display manufacturer can help put you in the display at the budget if you share a range with them.
These simple ideas will help you with your custom display projects. See more of our custom displays at pop2go
