Can you use my custom artwork?
Yes. Please send us your file in a vector AI, EPS, or PDF format.
How do I know what size letters I need for viewing distance?
A general rule is that you can see a:
- 6" letter from 125 feet
- 1' letter from 250 feet
- 2' letter from 500 feet
- 4' letter from 1000 feet
To maximize marketing impact, you might consider some of these sizes:
- 4' letters to 10' letters for capitalizing on use of social media immersion (think selfies)
- 3' letters to 10' letters for stage presence
- 3' letters to 12' letters for trade shows
What is the largest letters model you can make?
There is no limit to the size of model. Transportability will be your only concern on an extremely large letter model.
What features can a large letter model have?
Letters can be finished with paint or special strength coatings and even airbrushed. They can also be covered with any special look you might want from organic coverings to special materials. Custom bases or special shapes are also available.
What file type is required if I need to incorporate special fabrication into the project?
We work with all architectural CAD programs and modeling programs including AutoCAD, Revit, Chief Architect, ArchiCAD, Maya, 3DS Max Design, Zbrush, and Sketchup, just to name a few. If you design in 3D, we will start with your 3D files. If you have 2D blueprints, artist's sketches (or even napkin drawings), we can build a model from these as well.
What is the turnaround time for large letters?
This is totally dependent on the size of the project. Typical projects can be completed in two to six weeks. We understand that sometimes deadlines are tight and we can accommodate rush orders in shorter amounts of time.
I have to fit my letters in a certain length of space. How do I know they will fit? What is the maximum size that will fit?
Please let us know what your maximum line length should not exceed. We will then calculate what size letters can fit.
Can I use a custom font?
Yes, you can use a custom font for your large letters project. You will need to send us the font in a .ttf (True Type format). If we are buying the font for you, that will be additional.
Can you match our PMS/Pantone colors?
Yes. A $100 paint match charge will apply for each PMS or Pantone match.
What technology do you use for large letters?
It can be a number of different technologies, individually or combined. These range from 3D Foam, 3D Printing, CNC Cutting, laser cutting, laser etching, casting, molding, sculpting, painting, airbrushing, laminating, vinyl printing, and woodworking – all meant to produce highly engaging models that fit your exact needs.
What is the material used?
We match the correct material and fabrication process to your requirements in terms of presentation, size, and transportability. We fabricate in our model shop using different types of foam, wood, metal, resins, and acrylics. We can also 3D print in full-color sandstone, uv-cured resin, plastic, rubber-like acrylic, and nylon. Our large letters are typically made with EPS foam, and sometimes with wood. Need a special facing? The sky is the limit! (we once created letters with green moss)
