Our Laser Cut Acrylic Letters

FLIR Logo

Acrylic plastic sign letters can be best described as Plexiglas. Our Acrylic is available in thicknesses of 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2". Unlike the Formed Plastic Letters and Injection Molded Letters that are hollow in the back and provide for greater depths, an Acrylic plastic sign letter is solid all the way through and has a maximum depth of 1 "

The greatest advantages obtained from Acrylic sign letters are price and versatility. This product is cut with computer guided tools which allows us to cut virtually any shape, font, logo or design. Although we have a standard font set to choose from, we can in fact cut any font at no extra charge in most cases.

Laser cut acrylic sign letters and logos offer an affordable way to create great looking signs. The laser cutting process, flame polishes the edge of the letter leaving it as vibrant as the high gloss face.

Acrylics can be pigmented, i.e.: the color of the raw material, or painted with a long lasting and durable baked enamel finish. The latter is recommended for exterior use as some pigmented colors tend to break down under continuous UV exposure.

Disadvantages are weight and resistance to vandalism. While the thinner materials are relatively inexpensive and fairly lightweight, the thicker materials are very costly and heavy. Thinner materials are easily smashed on impact.

Most any font or shape can be cut, and there are 24 standard pigmented colors to choose from as well as an array of painted colors. Custom painted colors are also available using PMS matching or using a manufactures color such as Sherwin Williams, PPG, etc.

Mirror acrylic is just like mirrored glass. Essentially there is a coating on the back of the clear acrylic that turns it into a mirror. The coating is tinted for each of the colors. IMPORTANT: All 1/8" thick acrylic has the mirror coating on the back side of the material. All other thicknesses are created by laminating 1/8" sheet to a thicker solid black acrylic which adds the depth to it and conceals the mirror coating. On 1/8" mirror acrylic, the coating can be easily eaten away with any glue you apply to it. USE ONLY double side tape to install with. Many glues have solvents that will damage the mirror coating. The thicker pre-laminated product, 1/4 and thicker does not have the same limitation because its coating is trapped in the laminating process.

Installation Hardware

No Mounts Mount with small spots of silicon adhesive directly to a flat dry surface. This option can be a bit messy and care must be taken to ensure that silicon doesn't squeeze out from the sides. Pinhead amounts should be used, dotted around the back surface in strategic locations. Masking tape will be needed to hold the letters in place while the silicon dries. A good alternative is to use some double stick tape in places that will do the initial holding while the silicon sets.
through holes Holes are drilled through the letters to allow you to use screws to fasten the letters. Looks unsightly and will crack the acrylic if screwed to tight. Always allow the screws to snug, leaving expansion room. Will crack the acrylic if no expansion room allowed. FREE OPTION
Pad Mount Mushroom shaped perforated pads are glued to the back of the letter to provide mounting points that will stand the letters away from the wall about 3/8". Apply silicon caulk to the pads then stick directly to the wall using strips of masking tape to hold them in position for 24 hours till dry. Not recommended outdoors.
stud On thinner letters up to 1/4" thick, we have to glue on threaded stud blocks to accept all threaded rod (studs). In general this will stand the letters off the wall about 1/4" to 1/2" depending on the letter size. Mounting this type of letter requires drilling the wall or mounting surface to accept the metal studs. A mounting pattern is highly recommended to locate the correct places to drill. Once the holes are drilled, screw studs into the stud blocks being careful not to over tighten, then fill the holes with silicon caulk, coat the studs and push the assembly into the wall up to where the stud block meets the wall surface.
combination mount Studs through pads on the tops of the letters give you holding power into the wall while regular pads on the bottom of the letters give you the convenience of drilling less holes. Also good for use on uneven siding.
combination all mount Combination All has stud through pads on all mounting points giving you total flexibility. Use where you want a stand off of the letters from the wall surface, or to adjust for ridges and valleys on metal buildings.
Keyhole Mount Not many companies offer this but its an excellent way to mount letters indoors where you may later want to remove them for painting the wall or to relocate. With this mount and a mounting pattern, all you do is run drywall screws into the wall, deep enough so their heads protrude, then locate the heads over the large keyhole opening, push toward the wall and pull down to lock in place. No drilling, no glue, and easily removable for painting or moving. Requires fonts large enough and thick enough to accommodate the depth of the keyhole and the
size of its opening. Usually 6" and above and 3/8" or more thick.
Double Side Tape Mount High quality, general purpose double sided tape makes mounting a breeze. Not recommended outside but can be used outside if silicon caulk is used between the tape strips.
Drill and Tap On thicker letters, 3/8" and 1/2", we can drill and tap the backs of the letters to accept the threaded rods (studs). Mounting is the same as for the stud boss above except that the studs go all the way into the wall for a flush mount.

 

Mounting Methods and Installation Tips

One of the most frequent questions we get is how to install the sign letters.  Most people imagine some form of anchor is attached to the wall onto which the letters are mounted. Fortunately, it's not that complicated. Any tools you need you most likely have at home.

Types of Mounts
We sell a wide variety of sign letter products. Each type of letter has its own mounting requirement. There is no "one-method-fits-all." Some sign letters are hollow in the back and require either a stud or pad mounting to properly install. Other letters are solid material, like the flat cut-out acrylic letters and the flat cut-out aluminum letters. Because these letters are solid material and flat on the back, they can be mounted without hardware.

In general there are 2 mounting method categories to choose from.

Anchor Mounts:

  • Stud Only
  • Combination
  • Combination All
  • Bottom Stud
  • Flush Stud
  • Stud Boss
  • Welded Stud
  • Keyhole Mounts

Installing Sign Letters Using Anchor Mounts

  • You need a long bubble level or better still a laser level.
  • An electric drill and perhaps some masonry drill bits.
  • Something to blow debris from the holes you drill, a turkey baster works well or even the exhaust ports on your drill will often be enough to blow out the debris.
  • Lastly you need enough Silicon Caulk to fill all of the holes you drill.

A mounting pattern, is optional, but it will save you a lot of time and almost guarantee a professionally spaced and aligned installation. You you can order one from us. They are well worth their modest cost!

Adhesive Mounts:

  • Pad Mount
  • Flange Mount
  • Double-Sided Tape
  • Direct Adhesion with Silicon Caulk or Construction Adhesive

Installing Sign Letters Using Adhesive Mounts
Instructions apply whether you choose pad mounts, adjustable pad mounts or no mounts at all. For no-mount installations on a flat, dry surface, use small drops of silicon caulk on the back of each sign letter. This type of mount works better indoors.

For double-sided tape (tape provided with the letters or by you) use small drops of silicon caulk between the pieces of double-sided tape to ensure against the tape drying out after a period of time and no longer holding the letters.

Mounting Pattern for Sign Letters
Patterns come in several forms depending on the manufacturer of your letters. For stud mounted installations, your pattern will be the actual, full-size of your finished sign. All letters, numbers, punctuation, and logos (if ordered) will be clearly drawn and properly spaced on the pattern. Signs that have multiple lines of text will be aligned to your specifications and all of the required stud locations are marked on the pattern.

For pad mounts or other adhesive based installation methods, you can buy a pounce pattern or use the free spacing tape offered with some of our products. The pounce pattern is a full size, fully aligned and spaced pattern. Instead of it being marked with mounting holes, the letters are drawn on the pattern and perforated around their outer edge. Just tape the pattern in place, rub chalk over the holes to leave a chalk outline on the mounting surface. Install your letters, then wash the off chalk. The free spacing tape only provides spacing information on where to place each sign letter in relation to the one preceding it. Vertical and horizontal alignment will be up to you.
