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.
ALL OUR LETTERS AND LOGOS CARRY OUR LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
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.
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.
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!
