Threaded Rod fixings
(only supplied when requested with an additional charge)
Threaded rod is used when fixing moulded lettering to an uneven surface, or where
the lettering may be subject to vandalism. The threaded rod is secured to the rear of the lettering using a ‘keyhole’ fixture. a fixing template is provided which is offered up to the fascia and drilled with slightly larger diameter holes than the rod.
Silicon is then injected into the holes. The lettering is then pushed into the holes until level.
Simple fix fixings (our standard fixing)
Simple fix fixings or AXI-FIX fixings are a 2 part system used to fix flat cut or
moulded letters to brick walls, wooden fascias,
metal cladded fascias or plastic fascias.
The stud fixing which is already attached on the back of the letter will have been placed on a paper layout to punch a hole in the paper leaving a registration mark making a fixing template. The fixing template is then positioned where required on the fascia and the fixing points are drilled. The female cups are then screwed to the fascia using 1? posidrive, plated pan head screws. The lettering is then pushed into the cups until an audible click is heard.
A logo of a fish. Cut in self adhesive vinyl and applied onto a shop sign. The artwork came in as a small poor quality jpeg file. The customers original artwork was lost at their printers. We took the jpeg image and digitised it using Corel Draw version 12. After digitising it and converting it to a vector image we saved the artwork in four different formats for future use and to give a copy to the customer for free. It was saved as a corel draw file, eps, ai and pdf files.
Vector files are required for cutting logos in vinyl and they are useful with digital printing as well. The quality of a vectorised logos and lettering remains the same what ever size it is cut or printed at as long as the digitising was done properly.
The fish were cut between 250mm and 300mm high. Black vinyl detail was cut and then stuck onto the white vinyl sticker. It was then mounted onto the shop front sign. There were two different fish which were digitised and cut.
