Let's start with "what is awning lettering"?

Awning lettering can be your business name, your own name, your business product or services in lettering, for application onto your awning* as a decoration, and as information so your customers can find you.
*Always test first. AwnGrip lettering also works on a variety of woven and smooth surfaces: Walls, canopies, tents, sports uniforms, flags, banners, certain plastics and vinyls and more. Try it out for your next project and share it with us!

What's better, an awning panel or individual letters?

AwnGrip letters are individually cut letters with no background. As the adhesive is extremely strong, each pre-aligned letter must be carefully peeled away from the backing so that the sentence or word stays on the application mask. This makes it more difficult to apply that a panel, which is a background color with a contrasting color of lettering. A panel with your wording on it, applies all in one piece, so once you start to pull off the backing that covers the adhesive side, it all comes off in one piece, and applies in one piece.

What's easier to apply or applies more quickly?

Since the panels apply in one piece, definitely the panels are easiest to apply more quickly over applying individual letters. However, a panel requires some careful and additional planning, as larger panels may be best handled by two people and care must be taken to apply the panel straight. 

Which costs less to buy?

The less material, the lower the cost, so the individual letters cost less to buy but may take more time to install. The panels may cost more to purchase but take much less time to install. The lower purchase cost might cost more in time and labor to install, if you're planning on paying for local sign shop help in installing the lettering.
