Built-up Lettering

Built-Up lettering refers to the method of fabrication commonly used for crafting large signage letters primarily from metal materials. This technique is especially popular for designing outdoor fascias and logos that are intended for long-term display. Each individual letter is fashioned with a laser-cut face, which is then seamlessly welded to a folded return. This results in a flawless join, giving the letter a robust and premium appearance. What's more, we provide the flexibility to customise the return depth, allowing you to achieve the precise level of projection desired. Depending on the material you opt for, we offer an array of stylish finishes. This inlcudes the elegant shimmer of polished metal, the luxurious look of brushed gold and silver, or a paint job in any RAL colour that aligns with your brand.

Built-Up Lettering to Make Your Signage Pop

Built-Up letters add depth and interest to your signage and are a popular choice for the hospitality industry, shop front signage, and office premises. Built up lettering is an effective and easy way of adding visual impact to your signage, and making sure that you stand out from the crowd.

You can design your own Built-Up lettering or make use of our professional design service to ensure that you get the exact effect that you’re after. Not only can you determine the exact style of lettering and spacing that you require for your Built-Up signs, you can also control the height and profile of your letters for a truly bespoke signage solution.

We offer three material options for your Built-Up lettering signs: precision cut acrylic, aluminium, or stainless steel. All of these options are suitable for outdoor usage, and acrylic and aluminium allow you the option of creating lettering in colours that match your brand colours.

We supply all of our Built-Up lettering with fixings for installation and you can choose from a range of fixing options to best suit your installation needs. You can also opt to have your lettering installed using our professional installation service, a great option for complicated projects, or for installations that will require specialist installation equipment because of height etc.

In addition to our Built-Up lettering signage, we also provide face illuminated Built-Up lettering, halo illuminated Built-Up lettering, and of course, flat cut lettering.

Be sure to also check out our other signage products including tray signs, our great range of illuminated signs, lightboxes, neon signs, sign posts, digital signage, signage boards and office

We have used Sign Supplier for a good 18 months now as our main site signage supplier. They designed us a custom brochure for all of our requirements so that we can easily reference product codes whenever we need to order various signs. We have our own account manager who takes care of everything. Our signs always arrive at multiple sites across the country in a timely fashion, all well packaged and using high quality materials. We are delighted with the service we receive from Sign Supplier.

I enquired about a neon sign (and a few other things) through the website. I had a response within 10 minutes and received my quote the very same day. The staff were knowledgeable enough to advise me on a few things, which I was more than happy to oblige. When my order arrived it was perfect - the quality is excellent and can tell it's all premium materials and craftsmanship that will last a long time.

I ordered a trough light for our company sign on the website as after looking on multiple other sites this was the easiest to use and very fairly priced. The light arrived exactly as I requested it and within the delivery timeframe they provide. Will definitely use again for our next signage requirements.
