Business Wall Letter Selection Guide

Let's start here.
What kinds of letters are available for business walls?
Ask about do-it-yourself installation to save money. All you need is a masonry bit for your drill, a pre-drilling template, some shims and silicone cement for a professional looking image.

    Which is the best letter to use for my building, monument sign or inside lobby wall?




    In the past, letter materials had a lot of impact on the cost of the letters. Today with modern tech and recycling, we've been able to significantly reduce waste so many of the letters are similarly priced and warranted for life with the exception of letters with included lighting.

    So when you want a "look" for your business wall, that specific look will determine the materials in your order.
    We're available to answer your questions in basic and detailed technical specifications, just ask.

    flat cut metals
    For sharp edges in metal, any letter will work.

    In acrylic plastic, all have sharp edges except for the heat molded letters.

    For internally-lighted letters, choose the fabricated metal or molded plastic lighted letters. The lighted letters are covered in other articles.

    For custom typestyles, choose from flat metal letters, metal film laminated plastics and flat cut acrylic.

    Working within a budget?
    While few things are less costly than painted foam letters, the flat-cut metals and acrylic plastics are unbeatable and feature a lifetime replacement warranty.

    In painted letters, almost any of the letter choices will work, but consider the lower cost of aluminum (over the more costly brass and copper) and flat-cut plastic over molded letters.

    For special finishes, there are a number of options in metals, especially the fabricated and flat-cut metals, including mill finish, orbital sanded, painted, colored and polished.

    Looking for office wall and entrance lettering?

    The metal laminated plastics work very well, as do the metal laminated foams, and you'll see a difference in price there between the foam and plastic, especially in the thicker letters, which foam handles brilliantly.

    These are a few examples of metal laminated foam and plastic for inside wall and lobby use.
