The no-mount option is for when you want to glue letters directly to a flat surface using some kind of adhesive such as silicon caulk or liquid nails. The problem with this type of installation is that glue tends to squeeze out the edges and it can get very messy. Also, until your glue sets the letters can move around and for large letters that means you need to use long strips of masking tape to hold them in place.
Double sided tape can only be applied to letters up to 24" in height. If using this option then always use a liquid silicon caulk as well to protect the letters in case the tape should fail
This is the default stud mount. This option will have blocks glued to the backs of the letters that create a natural surface standoff of about 3/8" which can be enhanced by choosing a standoff length in the forms options. The blocks are drilled and tapped to accept studs(threaded rods) that get glued into holes drilled in the mounting surface. A drill mounting pattern is required.
Plastic pad extending beyond back of letter, typical with plastic letters, install product direct to wall without having to drill any holes. Installed with use of split stencil or spacing guide. Silicone is a common adhesive to hold such letters.
The combo or combination mount differs from the combination all mount in that it only has stud THROUGH pads on the tops of the letters and standard PAD mounts on the bottoms. This mount is useful where you want to drill as few holes as possible and still have mounting rods(studs) in the wall. Installed by drilling holes for the stud through pad and adhering non stud pads directly to mounting surface. A drill mounting pattern is required.
The combination all mount is stud through pad on all points. This gives you adjustability on every stud and is useful for irregular surfaces such as corrugated metal buildings, lap siding, stone walls or anywhere you want a standoff form the wall that is adjustable during installation. A drill mounting pattern is required
Custom color print technology lets you faithfully reproduce your most complex designs, intricately detailed graphical elements, sophisticated color gradients or any photographic images directly onto sign materials. Our advanced, formable ink jet printing technology lets us print with dimensionally-stable, highly saturated color inks to reproduce virtually any image or design, and is a great option to create strong visual impact at a reasonable cost.
Full size Drilling patterns are tracing of letters done by hand at the factory. The letters, with studs screwed into the back or into blocks, are then punched through the paper to show the exact location of the studs. Once taped onto a wall, the hole locations are then drilled and filled with adhesive for any installation using a threaded stud. $3.25 per letter.
A pounce pattern is an outline drawing of letters ordered, full size, made on a plotter with a pounce tool instead of a pen. This tool punches small holes into the paper, following the exact outline of the letters. The installer will then tape this drawing on the wall and "dust" the surface with chalk. The chalk will create a "dusting outline" of the letters on the wall that is then used as a guide for installing plain or pad mounted letters. $3.25 per letter.
Stencil is a full size cutout of smaller letters. This pattern cannot be ordered for Cast or Molded products. Guide for installing plain, pad or double face tape letters. Guide is taped to wall, letter set inside cutout, adhered to wall. $60 FOR UP TO 100 CHARACTERS. (We determine if Stencil or Split Stencil is best for your order.)
This pattern cannot be ordered for Cast or Molded products. Split Stencil is a partial cutout of bottom portion of the letters above the baseline, plus 2" below the baseline that provides a perfect way to install plain, pad or double face tape flat cut out letters. This split stencil is generated using the same file that we use to produce your letters. $60 FOR UP TO 100 CHARACTERS. We determine if Stencil or Split Stencil is best for your order.)
A guide for plain, pad or double face tape mounted letters. The letters in a specific copy are spelled out and properly spaced on a long pattern table or computer generated. A narrow (approximately 2") piece of paper contains small hash marks or plotted lower portions of the letters. This guide is then secured to the wall with tape by the installer and provides a visual guide for installing letters. $10 - ANY QUANTITY.
