Metal Letters & Signs

Union Town Public Library

Metal letters and signs are a classic type of signage that your business can use in both indoor and outdoor settings. We use state-of-the-art technology to create shapes, logos, and custom designs to match your specifications. Our Axyz router offers a number of important productivity options for signmakers and helps us create a variety of durable and high-performing materials. The aluminum letters we create offer a unique, updated look that is architecturally friendly and great for design purposes. Designers of professional buildings often request them for that very reason.

Similar to the way we manufacture our sign faces, our Axyz router provides cut-out dimensional letters and routed faces using aluminum backed with plex. Our faces are available in .080, .090, and .125. Routed letters are available in 0.80, 0.90, .125, and .250.

Sign Crafters offers many options for creative metal letters and signs. Our team of craftsmen can create distinctive routed aluminum designs using a push-through plex process that gives it a 3-D effect. At night, only the letters appear – not the cabinet. We can also produce larger, more elaborate designs made of aluminum and routed signs that truly stand out. For examples of these types of signs and more, feel free to visit our sign gallery.

We have letter types that are made from various metals and colors, such as:

Bronze Letters - Bronze is one of the most popular materials used to create letters and signs. This timeless material has a classic, elegant look and can be used to craft letters and signs in a variety of sizes and styles. Bronze letters are also very durable, making it an excellent choice for outdoor applications such as monument signs or commercial signage. Bronze can be treated with patinas to give it a unique finish that enhances its natural beauty.

Brass: This metal is a popular choice for metal letters and signs due to its lustrous gold color and durability. Additionally, brass is corrosion-resistant and can be polished to a high shine, making it ideal for outdoor applications. Brass signs and letters are often used in public areas such as parks and museums or in corporate spaces like office buildings and retail stores. With the right care, these signs will last for many years, giving your space a classic look that won't go out of style.

Stainless Steel: This is an ideal material due to its durability and low maintenance requirements. It is corrosion-resistant and can withstand harsh weather conditions, making it suitable for outdoor signage. They come in a variety of finishes, from brushed to mirror polished. As a result, they are aesthetically pleasing as well as durable. Furthermore, stainless steel letters can be cut into almost any shape for a custom lettering job.

Aside from the type and color of the metal, you can also choose the size of your lettering:

Small Metal Letters - Small metal letters are a great way to add a unique touch to any space. These small metal letters can be made from all the metals listed above, like bronze or stainless steel.

Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Letters And Signs

Metal letters and signs have long been a staple in the world of exterior and interior design, offering a blend of durability, elegance, and timeless appeal. As businesses and individuals increasingly opt for these robust signage solutions, a myriad of questions arise about their customization, installation, and maintenance. In this section, we address the most frequently asked questions about metal letters and signs, providing insights to help you make informed decisions for your branding and decorative needs.

How do metal letters compare to plastic or acrylic letters in terms of durability?

Metal letters generally offer superior durability compared to plastic or acrylic letters. Here's a breakdown:

  • Strength: Metal, being a naturally strong element, can withstand physical impact better than plastic or acrylic. This makes metal letters less prone to breakage, chipping, or cracking.

  • Weather Resistance: Metal letters, especially those made from non-corrosive metals like aluminum or stainless steel, can resist the effects of harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, and UV rays. While high-quality acrylic can also be UV resistant, it might not fare as well under extreme temperature fluctuations as metal does.

  • Longevity: With proper maintenance, metal letters can last for decades without significant wear and tear. Plastic or acrylic letters, while durable, might show signs of aging, yellowing, or warping over time, especially when exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods.

  • Maintenance: Metal, especially if it's untreated or unpainted, might require periodic maintenance to prevent rusting or tarnishing. On the other hand, acrylic letters are relatively low maintenance but can scratch more easily than metal.

  • Aesthetic Wear: Over time, metal can develop a patina, especially if it's copper or bronze, which some people find aesthetically pleasing. Acrylic, however, can lose its shine and might require polishing to maintain its look.

While both metal and acrylic letters have their merits, in terms of sheer durability and resistance to environmental factors, metal often has the edge. However, the choice between the two should also consider factors like aesthetics, maintenance, and budget.

Can metal letters be illuminated or backlit?

Cast metal letters are a popular choice for businesses and individuals looking for a durable and elegant signage solution. One of the advantages of using cast metal is their versatility in design and illumination options. Yes, metal letters can indeed be illuminated or backlit, adding a dynamic visual appeal, especially for outdoor signs that need to be visible during nighttime or low-light conditions. Even designs that incorporate rusty metal letters can be illuminated, giving them a unique blend of vintage charm and modern flair. The process of backlighting these letters can accentuate their natural stain, creating a dramatic shadow effect that can make the sign stand out. While some might assume that such customizations come at a premium, it's possible to find providers offering these illuminated options at the lowest price. When considering a custom metal sign with backlighting, it's essential to ensure that the design and lighting complement each other, enhancing the sign's overall impact. Whether you're opting for a pristine finish or a rustic look with rusty letters, the addition of illumination can elevate the aesthetics of your sign, making it a focal point for your establishment or space.

What are the benefits of using metal for signage?

Using metal for signage offers a myriad of advantages, especially for businesses aiming to make a lasting impression. A metal sign, with its sleek and professional appearance, can significantly enhance the visual appeal of a storefront or office space. One of the primary benefits is its durability, making metal an ideal choice for outdoor signs exposed to various weather conditions. The robust nature of metal ensures that the sign remains intact and retains its aesthetics for years, even in challenging environments. Additionally, the natural satin finish of metal signs provides a sophisticated touch, reflecting light in a way that captures attention and conveys a sense of quality. This is particularly beneficial for small businesses looking to establish a strong brand presence and differentiate themselves in a competitive market. Furthermore, the versatility of metal allows for intricate designs and customizations, enabling businesses to create signs that truly resonate with their brand identity. In essence, opting for a custom metal sign is an investment in longevity, aesthetics, and brand visibility, making it a preferred choice for many, from small businesses to large enterprises.
