If you are looking for something special, and effective as lettering for the lobby of your workplace, then sign foam letters are a great option for you. These sign letters are available in various forms such as metal, plastic and painted foam letters.

Painted foam letters are produced by sandwiching structural foam in in between surfaces that are smooth and hard and then pressing in place. The sides of these letters are painted the same matte or semi gloss color as its face.

Plastic laminated foam letters are accessible in 19 colors and are produced by laminating it to structural foam that is sandwiched between smooth surfaces that are also hard. This plastic is colored with a high gloss or matte sheen.

Metal laminated foam letters are formed by laminating gold, silver or copper to structural foam that is sandwiched between hard and smooth surfaces. This metal laminate may be polished to a shine or brushed matte. All these 3 types of letters are an inch thick and are mounted using stress sensitive adhesive.

Various adhesion methods

The stress sensitive adhesive utilized for installing these sign letters is called repositionable adhesive and this allows you to eliminate and then at any time re-install your letters as required.

However, if you want something for permanent adhesion, use double sided tape. When you use this tape for adhesion, the wall or surface that you can apply the letters to might damage when you peel the letters off.

You can also set up sign foam letters using pin mount installation which involves sticking a flat head type tack or even a pin onto the backs of the letters. This method is best for installing letters on a tack board or for tradeshow displays but not for any drywall surfaces.

With Velcro installation, you have to use the hook and loop of Velcro. Mount the hook on every letter and the loop on the surface you intend to install the letters with adhesive. This way, you can remove and re-set up the letters anytime you want to. To make sure that you accurately install letters, it would be better for you to use a spacing tape or pounce pattern for all installation techniques.
