Why Cast vs Cut Metal Letters?

Cast letters offer more depth for the same cost. When compared to 1/4" cut sheet metal letters, a cast letter is often 4 times thicker and costs the same or less!

This is due the manufacturing process where cast letters are usually hollow in the back so you are not paying for all that solid metal you never see.

Highest quality, hand-finished cast aluminum and bronze letters from metal foundries with all-electric, pollution-free furnaces. Custom fonts and logos are economic in cast bronze or aluminum, with a variety of finish options, including polished, oxidized and anodized, all made in the USA, produced and shipped in typically 8 to 10 production days.

Cast Metal letters are hand finished, lead free and surprisingly inexpensive. Made in all electric, pollution free furnaces, these heavy metal letters feature greater depths than can be found in any of the cut metal letters we make, and because they are castings, they use less metal and that translates to price per letter.

When considering a cast letter against a flat cut letter, consider the depth and price of cast when compared to a similar depth in cut metal. These letters are the right choice for any environment whether it be the arid South Western States, the humid South Eastern States or the Northern States where temperatures can drop to sub zero. These all weather cast aluminum letters carry a manufacturer\s lifetime warrantee and come in a variety of finishes and colors.

Like anything left permanently outside, occasional maintenance is always a good idea. Once a year, check all the mounting hardware to make sure it is firmly attached to the building. Make repairs as necessary and should you need to replace a failed letter, just send us an email with a picture of the failure, your name and address and your original order number and we will have the factory make a new one and ship it to you at no charge. Cleaning the letters should also be done as needed. A simple soapy water solution is all that is required to bring your letters, numbers and logos back to their original sparkling condition.


Mounting Hardware

flush mount option

FLUSH MOUNT

Use this when mounting your letters flush to a flat surface. Whether it be drywall, brick, concrete, cinder block or wood, this is the most popular mount. Stud length for exterior use should be 2 inches in the wall. For drywall use, 1 inch is sufficient. Standard will be the factory choice based on the letter size.
projected jamb nut option

PROJECTED JAMB NUT MOUNT

If you are mounting to an uneven surface, perhaps lap siding, metal corrugated building or rock, this mount allows adjustability. Essentially, the stud (threaded rod) get 2 nuts wound on to them and can be tightened against each other at a desired distance down the stud. By doing this the studs will only go into the wall up to where they are stopped by the nuts. This allows adjustability on all points of the studs. The image at left shows 3 possible configurations when mounting to a wall, a metal corrugated building or a flat metal plate or wall.
projected spacer option

PROJECTED SPACER

A spacer is an aluminum tube of various selectable size which slips over the stud providing a standoff from the wall surface. This is a uniform distance so if you wanted your letter to stand away from the wall surface by 1 inch then that is the spacer length you should select. The stud length should also be selected so that with a 1 inch standoff and 2 inches of stud in the wall surface, you will need a 3 inch stud. The further you stand the letter away, the more stud you should have in the wall to counteract the weight of the letter.
stud in edge option

STUDS IN EDGE

Bottom stud, top or even both. Tapped holes in the edge of the letters for mounting in a vertical configuration. Couple of things to consider here. Letters have to be at least 3/8" thick to drill the holes and the letters have a minimum height of 4" -BUT- that minimum is font AND letter dependent since many fonts will not have wide enough strokes to allow the drilling and tapping without it coming all the way out the other side(consider an "O" for instance).
edge rail mount option

RAIL MOUNT ON EDGE

A rail is mounted to the top, bottom or both edges to allow for mounting stand up or hanging. Depending on letter sizes this mount may not be enough on it's own and require tie backs or framework if used outdoors.
rails on back mount option

BACK RAIL MOUNT

Mostly used for installation on metal corrugated buildings. It does detract from the look of the sign and is considered old school. In today\'s world a metal conduit raceway from home depot would look better to mount your letters too and they come ready finished. That being said we offer the double rail mount in maximum 8ft lengths and the rails are pre drilled to accept the letters ordered with screws that go through the rail into the letters.>
flush stud mount option

ANGLE BRACKET MOUNT

Angle bracket is mounted to a flat surface like a roof parapet and the letters are attached to the rail at the bottom only. This mount will require tie backs if outside and over 8" letter height.


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.

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.

The profile of a letter or number is how you will see it when you view it edge on as a cross section. A bevel face profile will have a prismatic look like a roof, rising steeply from the edge to the center of the letter stroke. A Round profile will have a half moon face that is rounded from edge to edge. A flat face profile will have slightly rounded corners due to the molding process and then be flat from edge to edge.
