Make your signs pop, literally! Dimensional letters and logos are so-called because they are add the 3rd dimension to signs by being actual pieces with depth. This is in contrast to a traditional, flat, 2-D sign that simply consists of printed or painted graphics. There is nothing wrong with a 2-D sign, and in fact, we make quite a few of them ourselves. However, 3-D lettering and logos give a very special and sophisticated look to both lobby and storefront signage.
The letters are usually made from cut acrylic or metal that are rated for both indoor and outdoor use. This is an important factor considering Cheyenne’s infamously inclement weather! Depending on the application and the desired visual effect, these dimensional pieces may be flush mounted with industrial adhesives against a sign panel or a wall, or they may be brought forward with stand offs and studs to give the illusion that they are floating in mid-air just in front of the wall. Having the pieces brought forward off the surface also lends itself perfectly to halo lighting, which really transforms an already amazing sign into an absolutely stunning sign!
Since dimensional letters involves creating concrete objects from art files that may involve abstract or physically impossible designs, there are some inherent limitations to dimensional signs. Sometimes slight modifications are needed to accommodate the physical mounting requirements of the sign. For example, some fonts with extremely thin strokes may need to be thickened a bit to allow for mounting studs to be installed, or to give enough surface area for adhesives to grab hold. Neither fret nor fear, however, because our amazing staff of professional graphic artists will ensure that the final design stays true to its original intent, and you will always be able to approve a mockup of the end product before committing to production. Thankfully, however, with the cutting edge technology that’s available to us today, we are able to transform almost any company logo or other graphic into a stylish dimensional piece that will be sure to grab everyone’s attention.
