When your Plastic Letters and logos calls for a chrome appearance, formed chrome may be your answer. Available in either Polished or Brushed, a chrome film is laminated to a sheet of CAB plastic, then thermoformed over a custom built mold. The end result is a deep, dimensional letter or logo that is UV stable, salt resistant, and designed for any exterior harsh environment use. Formed plastic letters have one of the fastest production times, usually just 5 working days.

What you need to know about Mounts and Mounting Patterns

The What

Vacuum Formed Plastic letters are hollow in the back and need one of the available mounting options listed. The best type of mount for letters 3 inch or more will be a stud mount. If your letters are 6 inch or taller, a combination or combo all mount will provide wall standoff if desired. For 2 inch letters, Mounting hardware is not available and they would need to be glued directly to the surface. For areas where stud installations are not allowed, the pad mount can be used to glue the letters to a flat surface and for this you can use either a spacing guide or eyeball the letters yourself. Mounting patterns ensure perfect alignment and spacing of all the letters and words in your sign . A stud, combo or combo all mount all use lengths of threaded rod that screw into blocks in the back of the letters. You screw the studs to the letters and then "glue" the studs into holes in your mounting surface using either silicon caulk, liquid nails, epoxy or mortar.

The Why

ust like any other tool, a mounting installation pattern or stencil guide is a tool that no sign professional would do without. For the average DIY person installing individual cut letters, having a mounting pattern to go by will be like hiring a professional sign installer, for a fraction of the labor cost. At first glance, a mounting pattern looks expensive and many customers forego it to save on costs but it is a false economy which will become apparent when they start to install their sign. Proper spacing and alignment of letters is not something you want to eyeball or guess at when installing a sign at your business. The human eye will easily pick up on any imperfection and if your sign looks bad, so will you.

The How

Before you begin, note that some patterns will have each character numbered. If so, you will find a corresponding number on the back of each metal letter and they MUST go in that position(1 to 1 and 2 to 2 etc), so sort and match first! While you are doing this go ahead and screw the metal threaded rods into each tapped hole. For welded studs (1/8" material only) skip this since they are already welded on and not removable. Now, take your pattern and tape it securely to the mounting surface. Using a heavy metal punch and hammer, mark each stud position through to the mounting surface. This avoids drilling through the pattern which may tear it. When all are marked, remove the pattern and drill holes 2" deep. Now coat each stud and fill each hole with adhesive and push the letter in to the wall. DONE!!!

Mounting patterns with stud locations cannot be made after the letters ship.

TIP: Whenever you are finished installing your letters, keep the install pattern in a safe place in case you ever need to move your sign!

About Installation Patterns

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.
