Bespoke Shop Sign Letters

Using polished chrome stainless steel gives your letters or logo a high quality finish where professionalism is everything. When it comes to quality, there is no better method of production however if your budget is limited then there is a cheaper alternative called aluminium composite, which has a similar finish but is made from a more cost-effective substitute material.

Polished Stainless Steel has an extremely high resistance to corrosion giving it a much longer life span than any other non-alloy product. So if you’re wanting a long life product then this is the product for you. With a little creativity there are lots of effects and contrasts that can be created with stainless steel letters and logos. You can also combine stainless steel with other materials like acrylic & aluminium composite creating whole new looks.

Also referred to as mirror-polished stainless steel, chrome or shiny silver - these steel shop sign letters can be used for internal office signs as well as external signs. Polished Stainless Steel is a totally weatherproof product and gives you a tough robust finish.

About Polished Stainless Steel Letters

Made typically from a commercial quality 304 grade stainless steel, the polished stainless steel flat cut letters are bespoke and made to order in a range of fonts and sizes. A flat sheet of steel is laser-cut to the shape and size of the logo or font and then fitted to a shop fascia, office wall or sign in a number of methods such as:

  • Flush fixing: letters are fitted flush to the surface with a strong adhesive tape
  • Raised fixing: letters are fitted with stand-off brackets so the letters stand proud off the wall surface

These type of letters are ideal for both internal or external use and can be fitted to an existing wooden fascia, brick wall or to an aluminium fascia.

Stainless steel letters are available in the following thicknesses: 

  • 1.5mm
  • 1.8mm
  • 2mm
  • 3mm

If you require an alternative thickness then please speak to a member of our sales team.

Installing your Flat Cut Raised letters

Flat cut letters are also designed to give you a three dimensional feel to your sign – they’re just not as chunky as the Built Up 3D Metal Letters. This type of metal lettering is manufactured from a flat metal sheet and fabricated to produce each unique letter.

The flat-cut letters consist of a "letter face" which is displayed on the front of the sign and not a "return side". The advantages in using this method is it reduces the cost compared to the built-up letters as well as the weight of the shop sign so they can be displayed and fixed to virtually any wall or front of shop.

These type of letters are made to order in a range of fonts, sizes and styles. The shape of the letter is laser cut from a flat sheet of metal. The letters are then fitted to the wall with a two part nut and bolt fixing. The male-part of the fixing is welded onto the back of the letter. The female-part of the fixing is fitted onto the wall. The two parts of the fixing then slot together and are tightened up securely with a spanner to ensure they're securely into position.

A paper-based fixing template is usually used to ensure all the fixings are in the correct position.

Alternative Steel Colours & Finishes

A lot of the requests we get asked to produce are for metal shop sign letters which are long lasting and affordable. Like most materials, stainless steel is available in a number of thicknesses and finishes. Machined in the same way as aluminium composite letters, the shop sign letters or logos are cut from a single flat sheet of Stainless Steel using a CNC router which has a large cutting bed which allows for extra-large letters and logos to me machined as one single piece. The letters or logos can then be painted to your desired colours or left plain.
