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.

Styrofoam Carving – 3D Skull

3D Skull Project.   We had to make a skull logo for a Gothic Clothes shop in Bournemouth, England.

The customer wanted 3D letters and a 3D logo.

3D Skull

They did not want perspex, they did not want metal, so we made the letters out of something else instead. We did not use wood or MDF. We did not use polyurethane foam.

We used Carvingfoam. We first digitized the pattern, then we hot wire cut the shapes. The letters and logo were then hand finished to their final shape. Next we gave the letters a coating of a special styrene free resin which does not melt the Carvingfoam. Once the resin is cured we then used sandpaper on the surface to give it a matt finish.
The letters and 3D Skull were then coated in a pigmented  acrylic resin coating.

The 3D Logos and 3D Letters made from styrofoam are fully UV protected once coated with acrylic resin.

This job was an interesting project to do. We like taking such projects on because of the artistic streak in us.


Brushed Gold Cast Resin Letters

Brushed Gold Painted Cast Resin Letters.

The word ‘take2’ was made for a shop sign, the letters measured 250mm high, 25mm thick, They had brass locators on the back.
This type of lettering is ideal for shop signs as well as for architectural signage as the letters should last for decades, They will not rod or rust. They may need repainting at some point in the future.

This is a new product and we are still working on ways to make them as the proccess at the moment requires a long lead time.
