What are dimensional signs or dimensional lettering?

Dimensional signs are 3D elements that can be constructed out of a wide variety of different materials in a variety of sizes and shapes. These 3D signs usually consist of a brand's company logo and/or tagline.   

Dimensional lettering are simply 3D letters typically made from acrylic or metal that are mounted individually to a backdrop. They can either be raised on clear spacers or mounted flush with the wall; however they can also be constructed large enough to standalone. 

Types of dimensional signs and dimensional lettering

Flat-Cut Letters 

Created by using a computer numerical control machine, which adheres to a coded, programmed set of instructions. It uses a laser, water jet or router to cut out the correct shapes. This technology results in clean-cut, precise lettering. You can use many different materials with flat-cut lettering technology.

Fabricated Channel Letters

Fabricated channel letters consist of bent channels glued or welded into the correct shapes with automated technology. They’re a long-lasting and durable option, allowing for various lighting techniques. Exterior face-lit channel letters are a popular choice, offering a stark and beautiful shine. Another option is reverse or halo-lit channel letters, with light glowing behind each letter. They create a softer ambiance and a more noticeable three-dimensional pop in dark surroundings.

How are dimensional signs and dimensional lettering made?

With dimensional signs and lettering coming in such a variety of materials the process for creating these signs can vastly differ. We use a lot of our in-house machinery such as the laser-cutter and CNC router to get the precision cut when creating the shapes. Our display and woodworking teams may also play a part in hand-making specific signage or signage parts.

What materials do dimensional signs and dimensional lettering come in?

With these 3D elements being so versatile, the options for what material they can be created in is almost endless. When choosing materials, consider location, design, and budget. Common material used when creating dimensional letter and signs:

  • Acrylic
  • Sintra board
  • Plastic
  • Metal
    • Aluminum
    • Stainless Steel
    • Brass
    • Bronze
    • Copper
  • Wood
    • Raw wood
    • Stained wood
    • Raw MDF
    • Painted MDF

How long do dimensional signs and lettering take to make?

The time it takes to create these 3D elements can vary in many ways based on complexity of the design, scale of the project, material, and the location of where these objects will be installed. If you need simple routed letters to be installed on a wall, that can be completed in mere days. Where production time starts to expand is when you have a culmination of multiple materials and moving parts that must come together at certain times. This process can take weeks.  

What is the typical price range for dimensional signs and lettering?

Like the process of creating dimensional lettering and signs, pricing for them varies based on many factors like materials, finishes, complexity of design, complexity of installation, and the size and quantity of the elements.
