Excellent product
 By  from Pittsburgh, PA
"I mounted these letters - upper and lower case - on a wooden plank to identify our church rectory. The form of the letters is nice and smooth, the mounting for the stud seems well designed. The sign looks sharp. I do worry that the letters are thick enough to withstand the impact from a snowblower during the cold winter months. But Alphabets assurred me they were designed for outdoor applications and should do fine. The bottom line is the sign and the letters look great.

Plastic sign letters

plastic building signs letters

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.

Online Sign Designer

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.

Lifetime guarantee on plastic sign letters

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 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.

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...
