DIMENSIONAL LETTER MATERIALS
Depending on what best suits your needs, there is a broad range of letter materials we can offer you. We get the most requests for the following:
Wood letters can be manufactured from any kind of hard or soft wood. This is the perfect way to complement your surroundings if you are in a wooded area. We typically recommend mahogany, cherry, alder, maple, pine, or walnut. Medium-density fiberboard can be painted the color of your choice if you are looking for a short-term exterior signage solution. We also provide wood laminate letters bonded to a PVC substrate.
Metal laminates and aluminum letters are the two main varieties of metal letters signs. Based on the vector-based art file you give us, we can fabricate flat-cut aluminum letters that are up to half an inch thick. We hand finish your cut letters by coating, polishing, or brushing them with a polyurethane enamel of whatever color you want. We then achieve a dimensional look by installing the finished letters with spacers.
Metal laminate letters are perfect for getting the rich appearance of a metal marker without maxing out your budget. We typically utilize anodized aluminum then bond it to acrylic, sign foam, or PVC. By painting the edges a metallic color, we simulate a solid metal look.
If you are at all concerned about the Southern California sun hurting your signage, then high-density urethane (HDU) letters are a smart alternative. Sign foam, as it is also known, is resistant to rotting and moisture, and it will not crack from exposure to the elements. These letters get their color from high-quality exterior paint. HDU can achieve a thickness of up to three inches. This makes it a great substrate for acrylic or aluminum laminates.
Monument signs and other outdoor markers can benefit from the professional image projected by flat cut acrylic letters. We mount the letters with spacers to give them their dimensionality. Acrylic can be used as a laminate on HDU or PVC substrates. Or, you can pick letters that are made entirely of PVC. We paint the PVC with your company colors to keep your branding consistent.HDU or PVC substrates. Or, you can pick letters that are made entirely of PVC.
