Vacuum formed plastic letters are the correct choice for outside signage where low cost and high visibility with lots of depth are the desired requirements. These letters come in a variety of standard colors in a wide variety of standard styles with sizes up to 48", many with lowercase letters.

Depending on letter or number size, the depths of Vacuum Formed Plastic Letters can go from 3/8" all the way to 2". 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 plastic letters carry a manufacturer\s lifetime warrantee against fading, cracking and chipping.

Prices are very reasonable too since the manufacturing process uses sheets of colored cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), a cotton based fiber plastic that is totally "green" and free of any petroleum base. This makes the product extremely resilient and does not harden and crack like normal plastics do when left outside.

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

no mount option

PLAIN MOUNT

Not recommended for the non-professional. This product is hollow in the back and without some form of mount in it will be impossible to mount. Running screws through the face will void the lifetime warranty. Sign Professionals Only!

flange mount option

FLANGE MOUNT

A flange mount leaves a flat edge of material around the perimeter of the letter where you can run screws through. This kind of mount is often used on corrugated metal buildings and the flange and mounting screws are painted the color of the building to hide the flange.

pad mount option

PAD MOUNT

Plastic pads extending about 1/8" beyond the back of letter allow you to use silicon on the pads and glue to a flat surface. Installed with use of a pounce pattern or spacing guide. Not recommended for outdoor installations or uneven surfaces.

stud mount option

STUD MOUNT

This is the default stud mount. This option will have blocks glued in the backs of the letters that accept threaded rods(studs). Drill corresponding holes in the mounting surface using the drilling pattern available at extra cost, then fill the holes and coat the studs with silicon and push the letter to the wall. A drill mounting pattern is required.

combo mount option

COMBO 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 from the wall that is adjustable during installation. 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 from the wall that is adjustable during installation. A drill mounting pattern is required.

wire mount option

WIRE MOUNT

Rarely used, the wire mount has "L" shaped wire loops that protrude at the back side of the letter for your wood screws. Wires can have a stand off or fit flush to wall. Specify standoff if required. Minimum 9" height required

bracket mount option

BRACKET MOUNT

Rarely used, the bracket is similar to the wire mount except the "L" shape is made of plastic. Flush mount only. Minimum 9" height required

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.
