How To Make An Acrylic Display Stand

There is no doubt that high-quality acrylic display cabinets are the best way to present your products. I am very confident to say that. It has become the first choice of many companies and its advantages are numerous.

If you occasionally need to make a acrylic display stand yourself, what factors should be considered?


The value of an acrylic bracket or display cabinet is almost determined by the price of its acrylic sheet material, and the factor that determines how much acrylic sheet consumes is actually its thickness. Generally, the thicker the thickness, the better the permeability, smoothness, and display effect. A thicker acrylic bracket consumes more material and therefore costs more.

The Weight Of Product To Be Displayed

The thickness of the plexiglass determines the weight of the acrylic cosmetic shelf. If you are building a custom acrylic display, make sure to consider the thickness of the acrylic panel, which will affect the load-bearing capacity of the acrylic stand. Generally, 2mm is sufficient for the decoration of acrylic displays. If you want it to be strong enough to safely transport the product, make sure to use a small acrylic display stand of 3mm or larger. Acrylic stents of different structures will have different load-bearing capabilities. But the thickness of 3mm to 5mm is very suitable for fixing and displaying most products.

Taking this factor into consideration and calculating the materials you need, you can confidently start your DIY or provide it to the company for customization.

  • Add elastic rubber feet to the bottom of the display rack to increase the necessary cushioning;
  • Although this glue dries slowly, please use stronger glue to make the display stronger;

  • When bonding, assembling, and fixing the plexiglass display stand, pay attention to reserve a certain expansion joint to prevent thermal expansion and contraction from affecting the display stand;
  • The impact strength of the plexiglass board can be increased by thermoforming, and the internal stress of the board can be released to reduce subsequent shrinkage and deformation.
