Gemini brand Vacuum Formed Plastic Letters

St John Chrysosmtom

Gemini brand Vacuum Formed plastic letters are well suited for interior or exterior applications from business names to signage for schools, churches, government institutions, etc. Gemini Vacuum Formed plastic letters can be very easy to mount with your choice of Stud, Flange, Combination, Combination all, Pads, or Adjustable Pad mounts. Ordering a full size mounting pattern to guide you will enable you to install your sign like a professional.

As an example, the image to the left was submitted by a recent customer showing their installation of 14" and 7" Gemini Vacuum Formed letters at the main entrance for their church. The letters are mounted with a stud for brick mount, meaning the studs that are in the backs of the letters are aligned such that they fall on the mortar gaps so no drilling into the brick work itself is needed.

 

THE ORIGINAL “GEMINI LETTERS”.

Formed plastic letters are the most popular and durable product in the sign industry today. The utmost in versatility, Gemini’s guaranteed-for-life formed letters are the standard for most local businesses as well as office parks, retail chains and almost anywhere there is a need for dimensional signage. Their inexpensive molds make it easy to customize a letter style or logo for the perfect 3D sign. Formed letters also provide the deepest dimension for the money. Because they extrude their our own sheets of Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB), they save money in the production cost which they can pass on to us and in turn to our customers. And, with 3 different forming locations across North America, most letters are just 2-3 days away from your doorstep. Gemini brand Vacuum Formed plastic letters and numbers are made from CAB plastic

CAB (Cellulose Acetate Butyrate) is a cotton fiber based non-petroleum plastic that is flexible, durable and completely recyclable.

Gemini Formed plastic letters are the most popular and durable product in the sign industry today, guaranteed by the manufacturer for the lifetime of the sign.

There are over 80 plus standard styles (fonts), and 31 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. ABS Vacuum Formed plastic letters are the same type of letters that a sign company would sell and install for you. Buying these letters online and installing them yourself can save you more than half of what you would pay a sign company to do.

Holding space for price table
Plain No Mounts As you can see from the image at left, ABS/Plex Vacuum Formed Sign Letters are hollow in the back and require some type of additional hardware for mounting purposes. We allow you to purchase without mounts assuming you have some other way to affix them. Please note that ordering without a mount will require you to return them to the factory at your expense, if you later decide you want mounts. The same goes for mounting patterns.
Flange Mount A small flange is left around the outside back of the letter which ranges from 1/8" to 3/8" wide depending on the size of the letter. You can use this flange to secure the letters with small screws through the flange. Not available on small sizes.
Pad Mount Where drilling your wall is not desirable or not allowed by a landlord, the pad mount provides a way to surface mount the letters using silicon adhesive directly to a surface. Best for indoor applications as outdoors will make them easily stolen or subject to wind loss. Apply silicon caulk liberally to the pads and apply directly to the wall surface using masking tape to hold the letters in position while the silicon sets.
Adjustable Pad Same as the pad mount but with adjustable pads to allow for stand off. Adjustability is approximately 0" - 3/8". Other sizes can be requested.
Stud Mount

One of the easiest methods to use is the stud mount. Threaded plastic blocks are glued into the backs of the letters at the factory and a threaded metal rod (stud) is screwed into the block. Using a mounting pattern (sold separately), drill required holes in the wall or mounting surface then fill holes and coat studs with silicon then push the entire assembly into the holes.

TIP: Be sure to drill holes slightly oversize. Studs should not be tight in holes to allow for expansion/contraction. Be sure to order the mounting pattern(s) with the letters otherwise you will have to return the letters to make one later. Also See additional notes bottom of page.

Combination Mount

Same as the stud mount with the addition of stud through pads on the top part of the letters, fixed pads on the bottom of the letters. The stud through pads are adjustable and the rods are designed to go into pre drilled holes in your wall. This mount COMBINES the pad mount with the stud mount allowing for less drilling which may be desirable.

See additional notes bottom of page and review videos for proper install methods.

Combination All Mount

Stud through pads on ALL parts of the letters allow for maximum adjustability and standoff if desired. The stud through pads are adjustable and the rods are designed to go into pre drilled holes in your wall. Drilling is required for each stud/pad in the same way as the stud mount but also provides full adjustability for depth and uneven surfaces.

See additional notes bottom of page and review videos for proper install methods.

Bracket Mount For special situations, brackets are "L" shaped protrusions in clear plastic for affixing letters with screws. There is also an INSIDE bracket mount which is difficult for non sign professionals to use but can be ordered by specifying INSIDE BRACKET on comments section of checkout.
Wire Mount Stainless steel wire loops for screws are molded into a plastic bracket that is glued at the factory to the inside rim of the letter. Similar to the Bracket mount and only used in special situations.

VERY IMPORTANT

All mounting hardware is added at the factory by hand. There are no specific locations for hardware to be placed in the back of the letter and therefore the locations of studs or combo/combination all type mounts will likely vary from letter to letter, EVEN WHEN THOSE LETTERS ARE OTHERWISE IDENTICLE !

When you order more than one set of identical letters for a project, YOU WILL NEED AN ADDITIONAL MOUNTING TEMPLATE!

When you receive your letters you will find a tag in the back of each letter that specifies to which position and which mounting pattern it belongs. It is vitally important that you match the letters to the mounting pattern BEFORE beginning installation.

 

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.
