Where is 3D Lettering Typically Installed?

The majority of the 3 dimensional lettering we produce is installed on the inside of buildings, but we have done plenty of exterior projects as well.

The only additional thing to consider when installing outside, is if the lettering will also require clear protective coating.

Which fonts work best for 3D Dimensional Lettering?

3D lettering comes in many different widths, ranging from a quarter of an inch thick to two inches thick or more. 

More standardized fonts usually work best for these projects. 

Sans-serif and serif fonts that do not have tiny strokes work well. Cursive lettering is tricky to produce, but we can make adjustments to make it work.

What to know prior to installing 3 dimensional lettering

Installing 3D lettering is permanent. If you want to change the lettering, the wall will need to be refinished after removal. If it is being installed on the exterior of a building, a permit may be required.

How is 3D lettering installed?

Each set of 3 dimensional lettering comes with a printed template that is used for installing. This is necessary so that the letter spacing is exact.

The template is taped on the surface of the install location, then drilled into or adhered onto the surface.

3D pieces can be offset from the wall using spacers if desired. Otherwise, we generally install flush to the wall surface.
