Metal on foam letters are made from HDU foam core that has a plastic face and back. The metal face is the same material used in our metal face acrylic letters which extends the product line by adding greater depth of the foam core. Typically 5 to 7 production days.

Mounting Hardware

no mount option

PLAIN MOUNT

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 face tape option

DOUBLEFACE TAPE MOUNT

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

Double face tape option

PAD MOUNT

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 a spacing guide. Silicone is a common adhesive to hold such letters.

stud in block option

STUD IN BLOCK MOUNT

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.

combo mount option

COMBO MOUNT

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.

combo-all mount option

COMBO ALL MOUNT

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

flush stud mount option

FLUSH STUD MOUNT

Letters have to be at least 3/8" thick to drill and tap the holes but this mount is very secure since it does not rely on a glued block to hold the stud. This mount is best used without wall stand-off which will compromise the purpose of this mount which is to prevent theft. If you want stand-off you can select it also but allow for the stud length which should be 2" in the wall plus the length of the stand-off. Mounting pattern is required. See the section above for mounting to real brick or for more information.

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 sales@signlettersource.com 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.

Cut letters can be finished in a variety of ways. Please refer to the choices at the bottom of this page. Some finishes can only be done on certain sizes or thickness of letters. Painted finishes can be the ones on our picker or for a small fee can be any pantone, sherwin Williams or PPG color.

Laminated metal letters comprise a thin metal face laminated to a thicker acrylic base. The edge of the letter will be a color that can be either a solid acrylic color such as Black or Blue or it can have a painted edge color that can be specified. None of the edge colors will match the face to make it look like a solid metal,and for that reason most people prefer to leave it black to appear like it has a shadow effect. You can select colors from either of the available colors on the tabs in the popup window.

Cut letters can be configured in various ways but they are dependent on the finish of the letters and the heights and fonts also. We try to present the choices available for the choices you have made elsewhere in this ordering page.

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 factory will calculate the correct stud length and if choosing this option then it's best to leave the stud length at factory set.

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.
