Dimensional Lettering Signs

07-31-2014

If you’re considering how to make your sign “stand out,” and you’re interested in an economical option, dimensional letters are a great choice.


Red Brick Pizza Dimensional Letter Sign

Dimensional Lettering’ refers to any lettering or logo that has three dimensions (as opposed to flat panels). Dimensional letters can also be illuminated in a number of ways. When illuminated we call these channel letters as they are fabricated pan aluminum forms with an internal lighting element. Channel letters can be back lit, face lit and numerous other options. Please see our channel letter gallery for further information.

These letters can be made of practically any material, from wood to aluminum, steel or plastic foam. There is sometimes a misconception that foam would be less expensive to build, but the reality is that materials are the smallest cost when building a sign. Regardless of the material the sign is made of, the work that goes into creating it is the same. Foam signs are for interior applications only and we never recommend them for outdoor application due to their exposure to the elements. 

Oasis Garden & Patio Dimensional Letter Sign

We often recommend half-inch acrylic for dimensional letters with concealed studs for mounting . This method creates great looking signs that are highly durable and long-lasting. 

This particular type of sign is both attractive and economical, and a great choice for those who want to create a high-quality sign on a more modest budget.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
