|Dimensional letters are individually created from
high-impact plastics or various metals; that are mounted to
your sign surface, building wall, or entrance monument.
|Dimensional Letters are
desirable for the following reasons:
- Dimensional Letters stand out. They are not
on the same plane as your sign background-creating depth
to your sign, making it more noticeable than either
painted letters or vinyl type lettering.
- Dimensional Letters are more durable. As
long as dimensional letters are made from high-impact
plastics (such as Butyrate) or metal; they can be
permanently mounted to any surface. Premium materials
will last longer, and look better longer than any other
form of signage.
- Dimensional Letters add class & distinction.
No matter what type of building, business, or signage
need-dimensional letters add a look and feel unlike any
flat type of signage.
|Choosing the proper letter material
is as important as your sign's message. The right
material will determine how long your sign will
last; and what the look and feel is of your sign.
If you want your sign to look good for an extended
period of time (particularly outdoors or where the
sign may be subject to wear and tear); you need to
make sure your sign is made from materials that will
not fade, chip, peel, delaminate, or crack. Sticking
to high-impact plastics and metal letters assures a
long life for your sign. Ask the following
- Are these letters impact resistant?
- How will these letters stand up to UV light
and the weather?
- Are these letters Guaranteed for Life?
Look and Feel. Always be looking to
match the material of your sign's letters with the
application. Choosing the wrong material can either
look out-of-place or may not fit the 'look' you are
trying to achieve. Polished Bronze letters on a
brown corrugated storage facility may seem out of
place; while glossy red formed plastic letters on a
brick building for an attorney's office may give the
|When you are
designing your sign; you should
always utilize the resources of an
experienced sign professional.
However, if you wish to create your
own design work-keep these criteria
in mind when laying out your sign.
Visibility. A sign
that cannot be seen should not be
created. Identify the type of
traffic your sign is meant to
attract (sidewalk traffic, downtown
vehicles, or highway traffic, for
example) and use the proper size,
color, angle, lighting, and
placement for maximum visibility.
Many of the decisions relating to
visibility are limited by your local
sign ordinances; so consult an
expert for this information.
Legibility. Even if
your sign is visible, if it is not
able to be read by your intended
audience, it has little value. Some
of the things to keep in mind are
- Letter Size.
Letters that are too small to
read are commonplace in many
signs today. For a quick
reference on what size letters
are needed for your sign;
examine the visibility chart
taken from the research
conducted by the University of
Pennsylvania State and the
United States Sign Council.
- Color & Finish Contrast.
Letters that blend in with their
background become illegible at
moderate distances. This applies
to polished metal letters that
may reflect a similar color as
the sign background to the
viewer making them unreadable;
dark letters that may blend into
a building brick or stone; or
other letters where there is a
small level of contrast between
the letter color and the
background. The amount and type
of lighting (both artificial and
natural) is important as well to
- White/Negative Space.
Simply enlarging letters does
not make them more readable.
Proper letter kerning (the space
between letters) and leading
(the space between lines of
text) have almost as much to do
with legibility as letter size.
Maintaining a high degree of
white or negative space is
important to keep the letters
from running together or running
into other distractions around
