We can cut letters as small as 1" high to 30" tall in thicknesses ranging from 1/8" to 1/2".

It doesn't stop there though. All of our letters and logos can be Brushed Satin, polished or painted to meet your specifications and to give you just the look you need for your project or sign.

We can take your .EPS, .CDR or other vector-based art files and produce your letters and logos in just 7 days. Durable enough for outdoors, yet perfect enough for any boardroom application

All of our finished letters are fully protected against weathering with a UV protectant clearcoat so that your sign will look as good after years of service, as it did the day it arrived.

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.
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, 3M brand Very High Bond double sided tape makes mounting a breeze. Can be used inside or outside on smooth surfaces. Recommended for non porous and sealed surfaces. Metal to metal has strong adhesion.
Welded Stud

On thinner letters up to 1/4" thick, we have to weld threaded studs.These studs are not removable without a lot of trouble. Mounting this type of letter requires drilling the wall or mounting surface to accept the metal studs.

 

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). 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.
Bottom Stud Bottom studs are available on 3/8" and 1/2" thick letters over 4" tall. For letters over 8" in height, some form of tie backs will be required to mount this outside. Pleaase check with your local city ordinence before purchasing.
Bottom Rail Similar to a bottom stud, the rail mount includes a length (8ft max) of "C" channel aluminum that tie all your letters together on a single line. Restrictions still apply for tie backs on letters over 8" tall in outdoor use.
Double Rail Double sets of rails can be used to span spaces or for uneven surfaces such as corrugated buildings. We provide rails and bolts, max. 8ft. Extra costs apply.
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.
