Acrylic lettering provides a low cost alternative to solid metal letters and are lightweight and easy to install. With 16 metal face finishes available satin brushed and polished, metal face acrylic lettering is not just a faux metal, these wall mounted letters are real .030" anodized aluminum with intricate detailed metal grain that are every bit as good if not more desirable than solid metal letters.
Our acrylic lettering can be mounted directly to drywall using double face tape or a liquid glue such as silicon caulk applied directly to the back or they can be mounted with hardware options to give wall standoff and shadow.
The majority of our customers prefer the standard black acrylic edge which gives a nice 2 toned effect along with the illusion of shadow and depth.
Depending on the size of your wall mounted letters, the depth should be increased as size is increased to prevent a flimsy look. Wall stand off should be used sparingly so as not to reveal the mounting points, especially when using combination type mounts. The standard stud mount will provide a natural 1/2" to 3/8" standoff on the 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4" depths, which is more than suitable for most indoor applications. On depths of 3/8" and more you can also choose a flush stud mount.
For sizes under 3" in height please refer to the page for Gemleaf letters.
Mounting patterns are expensive but for stud type mounts are essential for a professional install. Patterns save you time and avoid frustration when mounting the letters and should be looked at as "professional layout help" without the hourly cost of professional labor. Those that have first checked with what a sign installer charges will easily see the benefit of purchasing the pattern.
Production time for these wall mounted letters is 5 - 7 business days.
