Make your business name stand out by mounting three dimensional outdoor plastic sign letters on your building. Outdoor plastic sign letters are available in 30 weather resistant colors and are guaranteed for life from fading or breakage. Each individually molded plastic building sign letter comes complete with mounting hardware and installs in minutes. These are not made from acrylic but CAB which is more durable.
The online sign designer is for font style preview only. We provide the approximate sign dimensions for comparison purposes only. We have taken great care in providing the closest sign dimensions possible. Due to manufacturing processes beyond our control (temperature, pressure, mold locations) we cannot guarantee an exact line length. As a rule of thumb, allow 15 percent margin for space around the letters. This makes your sign more effective as well. Please call for exact dimensions.
These characters come with a lifetime warranty against fading, cracking, pitting or chipping as long as the letters are installed in their original location. You may be required to procure a permit from your local municipality to install sign letters on your building. The municipality will often request wind load data on the structural stability of the sign letters. Routine maintenance of rinsing with mild soap and water usually will restore the plastic surface to its original appearance. Plastic sign letters take 2-3 business days to produce plus transit time.
Production ready fonts take 2-3 business days. Legacy fonts are not as popular and the molds are warehoused but can still be produced in 10 business days.

Christy will take you step-by-step through the process of installing building letters. Thoroughly clean application area of all dirt, tar, and wax. Mark the decal with a ruled line along the top of letters and down its center.
Tape one edge of the template to the installation surface and unroll it. Level the template and tape the other edge of the installation surface.
Mark holes with center punch, then drill 1/4" holes 3" deep where indicated on your template. Remove the template and clean out all drill holes using any of the following methods: a quick puff of air; using the vents on your drill; compresses air or a turkey baster.
Insert the studs into the stud holes on the back of each letter. Place letters in holes on wall before applying silicone to verify position. Adjust as necessary. Now fill the drill holes in the wall of the first letter with silicone.
Push the tube of silicone over each stud on the first letter in order to evenly coat it with adhesive.
Push the letter into the drill holes using a shim or spacer to assure proper stand off of the letter from the wall. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the rest of the letters.
Clean the installation surface firs. Position the spacing tape on the wall and secure one end with masking tape. Unroll, level and tape the other end. Spacing tapes show the general position of each letter.
Apply silicone to all the pads on the letter first. Position the letter on the wall where indicated with the spacing tape. Tape the letter to the wall with several strips of masking tape.
Adjust as needed, push letter against wall to ensure good adhesive bond. Continue with the remainder of the letters, and allow the silicone to cure before removing the masking tape. Temperature and humidity will influence silicone cure times. On some conditions letters should cure overnight.
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...
