Signs Austin | Custom Foam Letter Signs

One of your options for exterior signs are sign foam letters. Foam letters are a good choice for large dimensional letters. They can be used for interior or exterior signs. They are also one of the most cost effective choices you can make, they are less expensive than solid acrylic or metal letters due to the cost of the material used. The foam is specifically made for indoor or outdoor signs; it is durable, light, and easy to install.

There are a number of different materials used for foam letters:

Dura-Foam Letters (Gatorfoam®)

Dura-Foam Letters are made from Gatorfoam®, which is structural foam, sandwiched between a hard facing, providing extra durability and a smooth surface. Dura-Foam letters can be used unpainted natural white or black or painted in a standard color or custom color with a semi-gloss finish.

Foam Letters with Plastic Laminate

Foam Letters with Plastic Laminate Letters are made from a high-pressure plastic laminate adhered to foam material, and precision cut.

 

The sides can remain natural white, or painted in any standard color or custom color with a matte, semi-gloss, or metallic paint.

Foam Letters with Metal Laminate

Foam Letters with Metal Laminate Letters are made form real metal laminate, available in a variety of finishes, adhered to sign foam and precision cut. The sides can remain unpainted, or be painted with matching metallic paint, or in any standard color or custom color with a matte or semi-gloss finish.

This is an example of a foam letter sign in Austin.  Plain Ivey Jane is an upscale botique in downtown Austin.  The sign is made of two layers of 1-1/2″ foam, one pink and one white, with a white laminate on the face.   The letters are stud mounted to the building face and we used some additional adhesive.

At the same cost, this sign would have been much smaller with acrylic letters and wouldn’t have the same impact.

If you need a great looking sign and have a modest budget, consider foam as the material for dimensional letters.
