You can also install sign foam letters utilizing pin mount installation which entails sticking a flat head kind tack or even a pin onto the backs of the letters. This technique is very 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 set up the letters with adhesive.

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.
