If you are searching for something special, and effective as lettering for the lobby of your office, 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 between surfaces that are smooth and difficult and then pressing in location. The sides of these letters are painted the exact same matte or semi gloss colour as its face.

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

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

Different adhesion techniques

The stress sensitive adhesive used 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 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 install sign foam letters using pin mount installation which involves 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 install the letters with adhesive. This way, you can eliminate and re-set up the letters anytime you want to. To make sure that you accurately set up letters, it would be much better for you to use a spacing tape or pounce pattern for all installation techniques.
