Looks great Andrea! Welcome to Sign World. I'm just starting out myself.

Nice work! What did you make the letters out of?

Thank you :)

Dee, they're made of white plexiglas (is that what you call perspex?)

Did you also apply the letters....that is the one part of getting into that side of the business that scares me. Alignment and attachment.

By the way....looks great.

good thing for me - I didn't have to mount them :D but I made it easy for them, because I cut the letters so they could use the leftover material as a jig ;)

Nice job Andrea. Acrylic letters are great to work with. I shipped an order today with 360 pieces of .125 in. with adhesive backs. Using the leftover piece from which they are cut can be used as a template in some cases.

A very wise idea that many people would miss... clients love that sort of detail, and it really costs you nothing to provide it.


BTW, I think most in the US call it plexiglass (even when it's not)...

Nice work Andrea. Are they mounted flush? Looks like stand offs were used. The letters look thicker than .125. Very nice. Like the man said, Elegant.

Thanks all :D

thickness is 3mm and 5mm standoffs where used to mount them, I just cut small acrylic discs and everything is mounted with a strong hold, double sided tape
