Built Up Acrylic Lettering

The Letter ‘U’ made from 3mm thick green acrylic, 12″ high with a 3″ return. These letters are made and fitted to shop front signs and come in a wide range of colours. You can buy them from www.arro-signs.co.uk

Most acrylic built up letters are made in a block bold font like Helvetica Bold or Clarendon Bold or similar type font. The letters can be illuminated with LED.

The letter face is first cut out using a cnc router, strips of acrylic are then cut to length and bent into shape to create the return on the letters. The components are then glued with a welding glue. Fixings are then glued to the back of the letters to allow the letters to be fixed to a fascia panel.

Most of the 3D acrylic leters that we make and supply go to our customers for DIY fitting unless the customer is local to us.

Dimensional Styrofoam Sign Letters

A sign located at the Triangle in Bournemouth called ‘Thriller’ The shop front sign with 3D skull logo and 3D gothic letters with stand off fixings was fitted onto a black gloss sign located in central Bournemouth.

The sign was fitted in 2010 and is still looking good in April 2016, although it could do with a wash. The letters were cut from a dense polystyrene type material known as styrofoam, the letters were then painted with a masonry paint, white face and blood red painted sides. The skull was hand carved out of the styrofoam and coated in a thin layer of Jesmonite for added durability although I don’t think it needed it in the end.
