Various Types of Sign Foam Letters2363958
If you are searching for something unique, and effective as lettering for the lobby of your office, then sign foam letters are a great choice for you. These sign letters are accessible in various types such as metal, plastic and painted foam letters.
Painted foam letters are created by sandwiching structural foam in between surfaces that are smooth and hard and then pressing in place. The sides of these letters are painted the exact same matte or semi gloss color as its face.
Plastic laminated foam letters are available in 19 colors and are produced by laminating it to structural foam that is sandwiched in 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 in between hard and smooth surfaces. This metal laminate might 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 pressure sensitive adhesive used for installing these sign letters is known as repositionable adhesive and this allows you to eliminate and then at any time re-set up your letters as required.
However, if you want some thing 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 utilizing pin mount installation which entails sticking a flat head type tack or even a pin onto the backs of the letters. This technique 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 each 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 much better for you to use a spacing tape or pounce pattern for all installation techniques.
