After suffering a long terrible 2020 year, almost all our clients are not in a good condition for their business. Because they were locked down again and again for the past year. Finally, when comes to 2021 year, all of them are trying to restart their business. However, when they decide to continue their custom luxury acrylic display stands project, they are surprised to find that the price is higher than the previous estimated price. They are much eager to know why. Actually there are 3 main reasons to affect the cost for acrylic display stands.
PMMA raw material cost for luxury acrylic display stands
For your information, the PMMA raw material is keeping increased day by day since 2021, which is much surprised to all of us.
When we come back to work from our Chinese New Year, we were told by our supplier that the cost has to be added and it keeps increased every day. It is not just for acrylic but it happened in all the line, such as carton, cloth, shipping etc.
After studying the details, we believe it is because of the COVID-19, which makes all cost increased.
As you know, the acrylic/Plexiglas/PMMA is made of PMMA raw material. Regard to the luxury acrylic display stands, they are constructed by acrylic/PMMA. Therefore, the cost for luxury acrylic display stands has to be increased.
Labor cost for luxury acrylic display stands
For your message, a luxury acrylic display stand is a hand-made goods. I am sure most of you know this well.
First, a whole piece of acrylic sheet should be cut into several small pieces by cutting machine, which is handled and controlled by labor for this step.
Second, the small pieces should be cutting required holes by a laser cutting machine, which is also handled and controlled by labor for this step.
Third, to polish the edge by diamond polishing machine, wheel polishing and fire polishing. Yes, you are right that this step is handled and controlled by labor too.
Fourth, after above 3 steps, it comes to silkscreen printing for logo, which needs a very clean and no dust environment. Otherwise, the silk-screened logo could not be perfect.
Someone may say that this could be done by machine. Yes, there are machines in the market. But Unfortunately, this is not suitable for us in custom luxury acrylic display stands. This step is also generated by labor.
Next but not the last, the small acrylic sheets come to the workshop. They must be glued one piece by one piece into a luxury acrylic display stand by labor. This cost much time and much labor cost than previous 4 steps.
Finally, when the luxury acrylic display stands are well completed, they need QC to check one by one to make sure they are in a good condition. Actgreen Acrylic Display would not accept to send out the luxury acrylic display stands with bad condition. Then luxury acrylic display stands need to be well packed by single carton, master carton and pallets. Actgreen Acrylic Display would make sure luxury acrylic display stands are well and strong packed.
From the above so many steps, you are able to find that every step needs the labor to handle, to take control of. Therefore, acrylic display stands are hand-made goods, which needs many labors to generate them. During recent years, the labor cost is becoming higher and higher, which makes the acrylic display stand cost higher alternative.
Carton cost for luxury acrylic display stands
As you know from the above, when it comes to the package step, luxury acrylic display stands need a single carton for the inner pack. Then several inner single cartons will be put into 1 master outer carton. As mentioned before, the carton raw material paper is also increasing this year. Therefore, this makes the cost of the acrylic display stands package is higher.
Even though, there are 3 main reasons to make the cost for acrylic display stands higher, Actgreen Acrylic Display is a professional acrylic display stand vendor, who will always provide a good reasonable cost with good service and good quality acrylic display stand. Please feel free to reach out.
