Letters are made with standard stainless steel alloy #304, which offers excellent corrosion resistance and effectively combats tarnishing under most circumstances. In addition, We offer titanium-coated stainless steel for the ultimate “gold” letter finish available. This material is comprised of #304 stainless coated with a thin layer of tinted titanium. Due to the fabrication process, the edge of all faces on letters and logos have thin lines of exposed #304 stainless that will be buffed smooth on polished letters, or stroked on satin letters to maintain consistency in appearance.
Whether your project begins with your original artwork or adapts a standard style, Zip Sign Letters will reproduce your design to your exact specifications, using precision-guided lasers, jigsaws or routers to cut the letters, logos and shapes from thin gauge sheets of single-directional stainless steel or premium titanium-coated stainless steel.
For most letters, 22-gauge material provides the proper balance of strength and weight, while some larger letters require 20-gauge material to provide adequate strength. The letter returns are produced from narrow band material or cut to size based on the desired letter depth and bent to the contour of the laser-cut faces to produce a hollow-backed letter with 90º angle edges that have clean, crisp corners and hand-soldered using a lead-free silver solder. Tests on our welds indicate the ability to withstand temperatures below -40ºF and exceeding 350ºF.
All fabricated metal sign letter products are either buffed, stroked or painted per specification. Our standard polished material is a high grade of single directional polish. Virtually no grain is visible to the naked eye. We also offer a truly non-directional polished material at a slightly higher cost for the most discerning customers.
Brackets are soldered on the inside of these metal sign letters to receive threaded studs. This involves a welded strap joining the letters’ returns with a stud-welded boss to accept mounting studs centered in the strap. This method produces a strong fabricated sign letter by giving strength to the already formidable welded side returns. Fabricated Metal Sign Letters are recommended for retail or architectural letters that are at least 1/2″ thick, where high-end quality fabrication is required, and where metal finishes are desired.
Fabricated Sign Letters can also be used in combination with neon lights or LEDs to create internally illuminated signage. Common users of these “halo lit” letters with neon and LED lighting include museums, office complexes, financial institutions and other buildings that require an extremely high-end look for their signage.
