My Salon Suite is a returning client. In the past, our technicians assisted the Glen Ellyn location at 930 Roosevelt Road with window graphics to lease salon suites. This time we worked with this location as well as the one at 2044 York Road in Oak Brook on the design, production, and installation of 3D letter lobby signs in Oak Brook and Glen Ellyn, IL.
Brand-Centric Flat-Cut Letters Have a Tremendous Impact on Customers and Prospective Stylists
The client requested flat cut letters that underscore the company’s brand message. However, because the wall backdrops feature light colors, we deviated from the typically white color play and opted for a black color message that is one of the online brand colors the company favors.
You will notice that the lobby signs feature two fonts, with one of them acting as the corporate logo. We achieved the seamless integration of these style elements through the letters’ careful spacing and the ability to tuck a slightly thinner material underneath the final letter. Now, both locations impress customers with their brand-specific displays.
What are Flat-Cut Letters for Signs? How Are They Made?
Ideal materials for these projects include acrylic and metal. As a result, these signage products work well indoors and outdoors. Our technicians can also work with specialized materials such as Cor-Ten steel, bronze, or glass. A typical letter measures up to one inch in thickness. While most letters might be up to 60 inches tall, it is possible to make bigger ones. In these cases, we create multiple sections that we combine with hidden seams.
Popular Installation Choices
Installation methods vary depending on the weight of the letters and the makeup of the substrate. Thin, small letters that you mount indoors on a tile wall can adhere with double-sided tape and silicone. Consider stud welds that we can attach to the back, top, or bottom of each letter for heavier or larger products. In this way, we can mount the flat-cut letters standing up, hanging down, or flush to a wall.
When are Manufactured Letters Better Options?
For most business owners, flat-cut letters are ideal because they perfectly imitate the display of a corporate persona online. However, if you have a company name that displays with prismatic facings or rounded edges, you will do better with a manufactured letter.
Cast metal and molded plastic are the materials of choice. They allow for the creation of wedges, rounded elements, and even prismatic faces. Depending on your brand message and desire to follow the example set online, you might choose these production options.
