Dimensional Lettering

Dimensional letters and logos add so much more to a sign. Make your business name pop in a way that cut vinyl can’t. With so many materials to choose from, there is an option to suit every budget, every style, and every purpose. Whether it is for inside or out, lit or not, come and see us and we’ll help you get noticed.

Dimensional Lettering FAQ

Dimensional letters can be made form a wide variety of materials:

  • Acrylic
  • Sintra (PVC)
  • alupanel
  • wood
  • brass
  • bronze
  • stainless
  • and aluminum

are just a few of the choices available.

There are different methods of mounting letters and each style can be mounted differently.  For example – thin acrylic letters can be mounted with double sided tape, alupanel letters can be pin mounted and many of the metal letters will have stud mounts

This partly depends on the mounting method, but virtually any surface can work. For adhesive mounting, a flat clean surface, including glass or metal is best.

We do not recommend power washing exterior letters at all.

As long as the curve is fairly shallow. Keep in mind too that a sign becomes less readable the more it curves.

Design Tips

  • Serif fonts such as Times New Roman are not suitable for smaller dimensional letters.

  • The simpler the logo the easier it is to read, especially at a distance.

  • Consider the colour of the background on which the sign will be mounted – you want the sign to stand out and not blend in.
