sign-tesco-layout-2013-visualArtwork sent to us as a vector artwork EPS file, edited in Corel Draw and then exported and then imported into a SignLab program for cutting in self adhesive vinyl as a logo.

The vinyl logo was then mounted onto panels of aluminium composite and supplied for fitting by a local builder that was doing a refit on the shop.

The customer was very specific on the colour of the vinyl as it needed to match their company colours exactly.

How to Fit Acrylic letters onto a Shop Sign

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
