WHAT MAKES FOAM LETTERS GREAT?
Despite being relatively new to the sign industry, foam letters are valued for their physical characteristics, quality, and exceptional strength. There are a number of reasons why we now supply foam letters for our signs in place of wood for an array of projects. Some of these reasons include:
- We can make the finished marker look almost exactly like wood
- Foam remains unfazed in temperatures as low as -30 degrees and up to 200 degrees
- It is completely waterproof
- Sign foam does not rot, decompose, or crack like wood does
- Post-consumer recycled materials are used to make foam letters
- It saves trees and is eco-friendly since it works as a replacement for wood
Additionally, sign foam is ideally suited for routing, carving, and sandblasting. Plus, wood is not the only material it can mimic. It can be made to look just like any other materials as well.
HOW ARE SIGN FOAM LETTERS USED?
When you want to give a monument sign, dimensional letter sign, or any other marker a dimensional appearance, foam letters are the way to go. When you choose a dimensional letter sign, the foam letters are typically applied to an aluminum composite panel. The letters can then be printed on with a digital printer, painted, or covered with a laminate, such as metal or acrylic.
Foam is used in the construction of many of the large monument signs you see next to the entrances of parking lots for many buildings and complexes. You probably didn’t even realize they were made using foam. This is because they are often made to look like other materials. You get nearly the same level of durability at a fraction of the price of the materials they are made to mimic. As a matter of fact, foam letters can usually withstand high wind speeds or repeated blows from a hammer.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE FOAM?
You should consider foam letters for their versatility even if you are not concerned about being green. There is a virtually limitless variety of custom touches we can give your foam sign. It can take the look of stucco, masonry, or wood. And, there are marvelous signs we can craft when using foam in conjunction with acrylic and aluminum.
