Production Times:

Ready to Ship in about 3-5 Business Days.

The production time is variable depending on the work load at the factory. Most times your product will ship in the given time frame or sooner but always allow for the worst case. Business days are defined as Monday to Friday excepting all public and federal holidays. The factory will not put anyone ahead of the queue not even if you pay for it but they will allow us to specify a "must ship" date and will tell us before accepting the order for production if they cannot make the date. This is done to prevent favoritism but the logic goes that if they agree to the must ship date they will expect you to reciprocate with expedited shipping which can get VERY expensive. We cannot even estimate the cost for expedited shipping due to the custom nature of the products being ordered. If your order is time dependent you must notify us during the order process at checkout in the comments box. If you do not notify us then we put you in the standard production queue.

Aligns the display output(below) either left, right or center justified. This image is passed along in your order. Alignment requires 2 or more lines of text. TIP: You can also indent text by using spaces before and after the text to move the line text to the left or right.

Sets a background to the preview so that you can judge the text color against a background color. Backgrounds are not provided in the order. All letters come as individual letters or numbers. We do not make the sign, we help you to make your sign.

Cut letters can be made in almost any size including fractions and lowercase and punctuation. Letter sizes are based on the inch and incur a price change when fractional as in 3-1/2 inch would be priced at the 4" cost so try not to go over by small amounts because even 1/8 over any inch mark will put you to the next price inch.

Cut letters are made from solid sheet. The thicker they get the more expensive and heavier they get. Small sizes are restricted to a maximum 3/8" depth but larger sizes can go to a full inch. Thick letters in cut metals are not very cost effective and if you are looking at anything over 3/8" you should take a look at cast metal letters in bronze or aluminum, or Fabricated stainless and aluminum letters which can have depths up to 6"!

This product is size and font dependent. Small sizes under 2 inches can only be made in block fonts and all capitals whereas most larger sizes can be made in any font regardless of if it's on our list. If you have your own font or your own artwork then we can accommodate that and there is usually no price difference. Send artwork in illustrator vector outlines to and include as much details about size, thickness, finish, mounts etc for a quick custom quote.

Type in the letters, numbers and punctuation, exactly as you want it to read when you make your sign. For multiple line signs, there are 3 other lines that will become available. What you type is what you will get. If lower case letters typed and the size is too small or lower case is not available in the chosen font, those letters will automatically convert to upper case and should convert back again when you change the height or size to something that has availability. What you type here will display in the preview area to the left along with correct real world dimensions. All letters are sent to you as individual letters and numbers, not as a ready made sign.

If you only want a series of numbers or numbers and letters for doors, then type them all in on line 1. Separate with a space but do not add comma's There is no need to add one number for each line.

If you want larger leading capitals in a phrase then you have to add the larger caps on a separate line.

There are 16 metal face finishes to choose from and all of them require no maintenance. Even though they are anodized aluminum, they are not suitable for outside use and may bleed color with excessive exposure to the elements.

These letters have a solid flat back so it can be mounted either directly to a flat surface with silicon or it can have a stud mount with pins that go in the wall and provide better anchoring.

The factory recommends 2" of stud in the wall plus the amount of wall standoff desired, if any. In most cases it is best to leave this option at factory set unless you know you want longer studs for a special purpose installation

Wall standoff refers to how far you want the back of the letters to be from the surface you are mounting them on. The stud mount already has blocks glued to the backs of the letters which provide a stand off of about 3/8". If this is not sufficient you can choose a preferred stand off here. The factory will calculate the correct stud length and if choosing this option then it's best to leave the stud length at factory set.

spacing guideThe spacing guide does not provide drill locations for studs and should not be ordered where you have chosen a stud or combination type mount.drilling guide For all stud type mounts you need a full size pattern shown above. This pattern cannot be ordered after the letters have shipped. The factory need the letters in hand to provide any form of pattern or guide.

We make no profit on the pattern. We sell the pattern at our cost which is $3.25 per letter. Our competition typically charge $4.50 per letter which is the MSRP. Patterns are not returnable.

When a quantity is set(such as for 2 sides of a sign), you only pay for and get one mounting pattern UNLESS the mount type is stud, combination or combination all. In that case you will need a mounting pattern for each set because the stud locations are never in the same position even when the letters are identical. This is due to the manufacturing process where the stud holes or mounting blocks are placed by hand after the letters are cut, cast or molded. The order totals will reflect this.
