Hi, loves! It’s time for the latest Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Nichole. She wants to know what to call the acrylic wedding signs with the backs or background painted in color. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m looking for a wedding sign for welcoming guests at my reception. I like the modern clear signs but with the background painted in color so the lettering stands out. I can’t figure out what they’re called or who makes them but I saw it on Pinterest. Any ideas? Thank you!”
Hi Nichole! Ah, yes: you’re looking for back painted acrylic wedding signs and we know exactly what you mean! The paint really pops with an acrylic background painted behind the lettering. Good idea!
Wedding signs for welcoming guests is a popular choice at your wedding.
However, since many are written with white lettering on a clear background, it can sometimes be tough to read, particularly in low light, overly bright light, or when something isn’t directly behind it to really help the lettering stand out.
The answer? Back painted acrylic wedding signs.
Try saying that five times fast! :)
Acrylic signs with the background painted solve the hard-to-read paint dilemma (especially important if the sign is directing guests to their tables, as in a wedding sign for seating).
Plus, an acrylic sign with the background in bright, bold paint infuses a pop of color into your event!
So, what kind of back painted wedding signs are all the rage right now? We’ll show you! We searched for a style we think you’ll love, based on variety, design, and, ah yes, how beautiful they look.
These signs are all available at SJ Letter Co.
Back Painted Wedding Sign
The most popular choice is a wedding sign for easel at the entryway of your reception. This is known simply as a wedding welcome sign.
Wedding Sign for Easel
This style of sign with painted back is in high demand. It is made with acrylic — clear durable plastic — and becomes a cheerful welcome sign with a painted background.
Wedding Sign for Seating
Show guests to their seats with an acrylic wedding sign for seating: it displays your guests names and table assignments in alphabetical order, so it’s easy to find where to be seated.
Sign… meet champagne!
It is helpful — and totally fun — to have this sign placed alongside another acrylic sign we love: a champagne wall! Guests can find their seats and take a glass of champagne to prepare for the toast. :) You can get a champagne wall for a great price at SaveTheDateDesignsCo here.
Fun fact: the champagne wall actually converts to a donut wall for your dessert bar later! Win-win!
Isn’t that such a great idea? You can find out more about it here.
OK – champagne break? Donut break? Check – check! Let’s get back to the wedding signs for seating.
These colorful acrylic seating charts are signs with painted backs again to match the welcome signs. You can choose the same color for all background paintings, or opt for a similar shade within your color palette to mix-and-match.
Acrylic Table Numbers
How will guests find their seats without table numbers? Good question!
Now, you don’t have to coordinate with wedding signs for table numbers.
But if you want a completely cohesive look, these table numbers will add to your style and theme, incorporating even more of that background painted acrylic look.
Wedding Sign in Memory of Lost Loved Ones
This sign is essential at your wedding and is a sweet way to honors lost loved ones at your wedding. This acrylic sign is a sweet way to show a table of pictures featuring those who have passed away.
And don’t just stop there: you can also get coordinating acrylic menus for your wedding! Here are a few examples you’ll enjoy. The colors they chose here are beeeeautiful!
Back Painted Acrylic Escort Cards
Need place cards or escort cards to match? Last but not least, here are the beautiful hexagon-style place cards that everyone’s going crazy over right now! I love the way these look all hand-lettered with paint behind it!
And there you have it: back painted acrylic wedding signs, pretty much any kind you need!
