The Letters and the words they make
The most important part of any 3D letter project are the letters themselves and how they are arranged. 3D letters have their own challenges with voids and balance coming into play. Let us know what you want yours to say and we'll find a way to make it stand tall.
Choosing Your Font
Once you have your text, next comes the font (or font style if you're not sure exactly what to use). There are limitations to the complexity of 3D letters as they get larger and more feature rich, so we recommend sans serif or block serif fonts for the most impact and the best economy.

Getting the Size Right
The font is also important because it determines the final size of the project! When creating 3D letters, you can either choose the height of the letters OR the width of the word. To avoid distortion, which can make text difficult to read, the font determines the other dimension.

The Finish Speaks Volumes
Generally, we paint our solid 3D letters in whatever color our clients desire, from simple solid hues to Pantone matched company colors, resulting in a smooth finish. Staining the letters brings out the natural beauty of the grain in a variety of colors. We can also surface letters in laminates that offer unique finishes from glorious golds to eclectic patterns.

The Wonders of LEDs
LED lighting can bring a static display to life with vibrant color and animation. Single colors, remote controlled RGB, and even sound modulation can all be integrated into most 3D letters. Our integrated lighting solutions can be even be battery powered in certain cases.

We have been fabricating giant 3D letters, hash tags, company names, and logos long enough to have it down to a science. Generally built of wood, and acrylic if lights are involved, our letters can be finished with paint, laminates, lights, or graphic prints that bring them to life for all to see. The process is straight forward and we're here to help make your vision a reality.
