How to Fit Acrylic Lettering

Black acrylic letters and logos fitted onto existing shop front panels. The size of the panels was measured by the customer. The customer then gave us the wording required and the artwork for the logo as a JPEG, we digitized the logo and cut it in vinyl and mounted it onto the acrylic. The letters were cut on a CNC router machine. The lettering then had plastic studs solvent welded/glued onto the back of the letters, the glue melts both the back of the letter and the fixings together which makes a strong join.

A paper template is then made of the acrylic letters by drawing out the letters on our computer plotter, the location of the fixings is done by hand by placing the acrylic letters over the paper template and lining up the letters with the layout and pressing the letters into the paper. The stud fixings on the back of the letters leave a mark on the paper which is then drawn in with a pen as a cross to indicate where the fixings will be. A bag of caps is supplied which is the other part of the fixing system.

To fit the letters onto the shop front, take the paper template and tape it into position with masking tape, check all your measurements and make sure the template is straight and centered on the sign. 5663396683_c216389d78_mDrill the holes where indicated with the crosses on the paper template. Remove the template. Take the cap fixings and put the screws through the cap which has a hole through it and fix it onto the shop front. Take the acrylic letters and offer them up to the fixings and push into position, the studs will snap into the cups and the letters are now fixed onto the shop sign.

Clean the letters with a damp link free cloth. Job well done. www.shopfrontsign.co.uk

Cast Resin Logo

3D logo text, artwork was given to us as a jpeg file, we then vectorized it and converted it to an EPS file which allowed us to produce a mould to cast the logo from. The mould process only allowed for the production of one cast and that was all that was needed for the job. The logo was 100mm high and 12mm thick, brass locators on the back, supplied to the customer with a paper template for fixing onto a rendered brick shop front located in France. The logo was painted in a matt red finish. if the customer required more than one 3d logo we would have used the cast logo as a pattern to copy from and we could have then reproduced a number of their Logos for use inside the shop or for In-Store display purposes.

Correx Letters

Correx letters for events and props

Correx letters are available custom made to order in only one font. Hollywood font. Available in any colour as long as it is white.

correx letters

The correx letters are built up by using 4mm thick correx cut and glued together like a box. Strong and lightweight. For outside use we would recommend using weights at the bottom of the letters to stop them blowing away. We can supply solid resin cubes that weigh about 2.5kg each.

We have also supplied correx A-Board letters that also seem to work well and are fairly cheap to make and supply.
