premium foam letters

Premium foam letters are best suited for indoor applications like hotel lobbies and professional reception areas. Premium foam letters take a little longer to produce but is worth it because the edges of the letters are not cellulose and sponge looking. Premium foam sign letters are manufactured from 13lb polystyrene foam sandwiched between two thin surfaces of wood fiber veneer. The exceptionally hard smooth surfaces of the wood fiber veneer provide durability and rigidity as well as moisture resistance. The premium foam letter's face is uniform and blemish free and resists dents and punctures.

typography alphabet

The font has been carefully designed to allow a viewer's eye to easily see the shape of each character. Not each character in a font is exactly the same size; otherwise your sign lettering would be difficult to read. We name the font after its uppercase letter 'A' size but most lowercase letters are shorter. Some lowercase letter shapes such as 'b d f h k l' have ascenders which can be taller than the uppercase 'A' height. Some lowercase letters such as 'g j p q y' have descenders which go below the words baseline. Uppercase letters that are rounded such as 'C G J O Q S U' are taller than an uppercase 'A' because the rounded part extends above and below the baseline. Please call us if you need to know the character's actual size and not its named size. Back to Top...
