Metal Letters and Numbers – Which To Choose
If you’re reading this you’re trying to determine which custom metal letter or number to go with and we are here to help you out. With so many different letters to choose from it really comes down to the type of look you’re looking to achieve. We have aluminum, cast, stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze and so many different finishes to go with each.
To start off metal lettering are made two different ways, all of the letters are cut using water jet or laser except for cast aluminum. Basically cast aluminum just like it’s name is made using a mold so there is less flexibility when buying this type of letter but the positive is you get a greater depth of letter for the price. Being that it is made from a mold the letter is hollow. All other letter types you have to pay based on thickness as well as height but they are solid. One is not better than the other and both are very durable. The positive of using a water jet cut letter is the flexibility with any custom order, custom font, or logo you may need. Our lettering comes both large or small and could be used as wall letters both inside and outside. The different mounting options we have will accommodate all types of surfaces. We have the ability to give you the modern or rustic look for decorative purposes. If you are using for a business sign outdoors we have the ability to give you led back lighting to really stick out at night and provide that glow.
When ordering different letters you can get different finishes such as natural oxidized polish and others for your sign. If you were still undecided I suggest you going to the different letters pages on the left bar just click and view with the examples to see what they would look like. There is also a color chart and a finishes chart on the right see you can get a better idea of what it would look like. If you wanted something other than letters such as a logo or anything else just call us or email us and we will get you back a quote within 24 hours. Along with the different finishes you can get many of these metal letters in colors as well. On each page there is a color chart on the right side of the page. Please click on this to enlarge and you can see the different color options available in each letter. One thing to remember when buying is getting the right size, be sure to measure the area and maybe cut paper letters out and paste on the wall or building to get a real idea on what it will look like. Once up you can decide if you want to go bigger, smaller or you have selected the right size. Once you receive your letters inspect them to make sure there was no damage when shipping. Pull out the installation pattern if you order one. This will be your guide when installing on where the studs will go and make help make your sign even. With these heavy letters or numbers we would suggest you hire someone that knows what they are doing or have installed these types of letters before. You want to make sure they are installed correctly and do not fall out.
All of these types of materials could be used both indoors and outdoors for your signage needs. We have addons that some businesses use to make their signage really stick out. You can have led lights behind the letters to illuminate the wall and give that glow effect. This is great at night where people can see your business sign from a far and really sticks out at night. If you have no lighting your sign become invisible outdoors when the sun goes down. Also on each page you can get a more in depth feel of pros and cons of each type of metal sign letters you may choose and pricing.
When it comes time to put your order in just remember each type of material may take longer to make so shipping times differ. If you are a builder this may come into play more.
