Modern Retail


PERSPEX® acrylic is synonymous with creativity and eye-catching retail designs, from promotional displays to instore shop fitting. Stocking hundreds of colours, Perspex Distribution has been the go-to company for shop fitting and retail POS materials for many years.  As the UK distribution arm of the Perspex® Cast Acrylic factory, they offer unrivalled access to the largest range of cast acrylic and UK manufactured substrates.  

Due to its unique manufacturing process, it is possible to create bespoke PERSPEX® acrylic colours and effects in small volumes making unique project colours achievable.

Bespoke colour creation

Many retail projects require a specific colour scheme, whether matching a pantone colour to a specific brand or when looking to match the colour palette of a new range of products, versatility and variety is the key. Perspex Distribution can match colours based on the detailed specifications needs of the project such as:  will the material be used inside or externally, what light source is being used, what is the required transparency or surface effects?


Even before December starts, retailers already have an eye on colour trends for spring & summer promotions.  

With this in mind, the PERSPEX® brand has recently launched a new range of neon inspired colours.

PERSPEX® Highlights is the new range of stunning acrylic colours perfect for the creation of colourful designs that scream festival vibes and bring a fun-in-the-sun mood at any time of the year, available now from Perspex Distribution.

Experience summer all year long with a palette set to inspire creative retail designers by offering 4 bold neon colours; they are bright, dazzling and refreshing.  The eye-catching colours are vibrant under ambient lighting but have also been designed to offer glowing LED illumination with the addition of diffuser particles to reduce hotspots from LED modules.

The exotic gloss colours, named Fiesta Yellow, Carnival Orange, Flamenco Pink and Luau Green, prove right on-trend.  With the combined benefits of opalescence and a striking fluorescence in one product, this astonishing colour collection will be a real head-turner – truly the star of any show. 

These new PERSEX® acrylic sheets are the ideal material for any interior or exterior retail projects such as signage, point of sale, visual merchandising and bespoke design pieces. 

PERSPEX® Highlights is stocked in a 3mm thickness and a sheet size of 3050mm x 2030mmm.   

PERSPEX® – A brand you can trust

Perspex® acrylic has been manufactured in the UK for over 80 years and this expertise means their colour experts are on hand to develop new colours and effects in-house.  Our product range not only follows technical innovation but we also track colour trends and fashions to develop new stocked colours.  

The versatility of Perspex® acrylic enables it to be bent, polished, cut, printed or illuminated to create the ideal finish.   Even shop fitters traditionally specialising in woodwork can easily diversify into acrylics with little change to their existing machinery and tools.
