If you are looking for something special, and effective as lettering for the lobby of your workplace, then sign foam letters are a fantastic 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 accessible in 19 colors and are created by laminating it to structural foam that is sandwiched between smooth surfaces that are also hard. 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 hard and smooth surfaces. This metal laminate may be polished to a shine or brushed matte. All these 3 types of letters are an inch thick and are mounted using pressure sensitive adhesive.

Various adhesion methods

The stress sensitive adhesive utilized for installing these sign letters is called repositionable adhesive and this enables you to remove and then at any time re-set up your letters as required.

Nevertheless, if you want something 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 may 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 method 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. This way, you can remove and re-install the letters whenever 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 methods.
