3D Printed Lettering

Posted in 3D Letters, Logos and Signs by Sign Man on March 25, 2014

A 3D printed letter ‘B’ in an Old English Font. 100mm high, 10mm returns. Mill finish, will require cleaning up with acetone and fine grade sandpaper before painting in a gold coloured finish. The software that runs 3D printers is not intuitive and does not take the print path that takes the least amount of time to print.

Soon when technology has advanced and the software has improved 3D printed lettering or 3D printed logos or 3D printed signs will be a practical solution for sign makers, at the moment only small objects are commercially viable to print. Today lazer cutting or CNC routing or engraving is a much faster process and cost effective method of producing signs and lettering in a 3D finish. For display purposes polystyrene letters cannot be beaten for the most effective form of production for this product.

We have started to make logos using the 3D print process and are evaluating the use in the production of small 3D Logos to be used for business office signs. Logos can be produced up to 200mm x 200mm x 200mm. The logos are first printed in a strong plastic and then spray painted in the appropriate colours to match the customers requirements. 3D Logo Makers.

Letter W – Styrofoam

Posted in 3D Letters, 3D Letters made from Styrofoam by Sign Man on March 29, 2013

Styrofoam letter W.

Aachen Normal font.

150mm high, 50mm thick.

prototype for casting into a concrete letter.


Before we decide to cast a letter in concrete we make a prototype in styrofoam to see if the font needs adjusting and before we make a mould for casting in concrete. We might also do this if we intend casting in resin or Jesmonite.

As a project to practice on I think I shall use this letter as a base to make some more samples and paint them in various different finishes, concrete effect, stone effect, masonry effect, metal effect, wood effect or rusty metal effect or any other finish that I can think of such as bronze metal effect. These letters are a good base for covering in paper or card or decorating in glitter.

Concrete letters and numbers are a new project that we have been working on after a customer requested us to produce some for their business premises. We even purchased a domain name http://www.concretenumbers.co.uk  where we hope to develop a product to sell online. We made a small amount of numbers and letters in concrete but we found that they broke too easily and had to add an extra ingredient to make the characters much stronger and to make them frost resistant.

Generic Websites

Posted in 3D Letters by Sign Man on January 28, 2013

Website  started. 29th March 2010 at 1pm.


Purpose of website to promote 3D letters for signs and drive traffic to our main website http://www.arro-signs.co.uk .

After trying without any success to get our main http://www.arro-signs.co.uk website into page one of google for the keywords ‘3D-letters’ we decided to try a different approach. Generic named websites are usually easier to get to number 1 in Google and Yahoo. As of yet it is not number 1 in Google, but it will be.

29th January, the site was number one on Google for about three months, it then fell off the first page due to Google penguin, I needed more original content and more than just one page. decided to start another site to have another go from a different direction, even less content, just to get traffic to a YouTube video, advertised on AdWords at 0.01 per click.  http://www.3dlettering.net/
