Fixing your metal letters & logos

There are many ways of fixing the metal lettering in place. One of the most effective is nut and bolt fixings, these can be used on metal letters up to a height of around 60cm. Any bigger than this then your metal sign will be too heavy for these fixings. The option for larger metal letters and signs is to use a threaded rod which is fixed to the rear of the letters - these are then pushed into your fixing holes and held secure with either resin or silicone.

 

Built-Up Lettering

Built up letters give you a three dimensional feel to your sign which makes them stand out from flat cut lettering. This type of metal lettering is manufactured from a flat metal sheet and fabricated to produce each unique letter.

The built up letters consist of a "letter face" which is displayed on the front of the sign and a "return side" which is also visible when fixed to the wall. This method gives the illusion that the letters are solid when in actual fact they're hollow. The advantages in using this method is it reduces the cost 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. A strip of metal is folded around the side of the letter to create the return side and depth of the letters. This is usually soldered onto the side of the letter and a range of return sizes are used depending on how thick or chunky you'd like the letters to look.

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.

Flat-Cut Lettering

Flat cut letters are also design 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.
