Architectural Lettering and Logos have become very popular in the last few years. Offices, Schools, and Medical Facilities are using individual lettering to name buildings, conference areas and common areas. This type of signage provides a stylish way to name an area. Here’s a few points to consider when choosing lettering.
- What are you naming? Are you naming an exterior building or interior area? This will determine, among other things, the type of material used. The lettering needs to be weather resistant to withstand outdoor settings.
- What type of surface are you mounting on? Are the letters being installed on drywall or masonry? This will determine how the letters will be mounted. A hard or stud mount is generally more stable. An adhesive mount is generally easier to install.
- What are the dimensions of the area? This will determine the size and layout of the lettering. Your Sign company should provide a technical drawing with dimensions. A hard copy printout is advantageous to allow for adjustments before installation.
- What’s your budget? Lettering can be more of an investment than a Sign. The individual placement, materials, and time of production can add to the cost. A combination of individual lettering and signage is a good option to control costs.
Rely on your sign company to provide information and guidance with Architectural Lettering. Use it as part of your overall visual plan.
