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

Andrew was at our building all day on Wednesday and was able to sort the wiring. Everything looks great! I just wanted to say thank you for all the extra effort you put in to make sure everything was right. We’ve dealt with a lot of different companies and contractors since getting the Government Funding. Sign Supplier have been the only company to go the extra mile to make sure the work was finished exactly as we hoped for. The signs have already made the building much more visible – I lost count of the number of young people in schools this week who told us they finally know where our youth centre is! It makes a big difference, so thank you.

From the initial enquiry, I was provided with mockups of our signage options and they were honest enough to recommend particular options ahead of others to keep within tight budgets. I could not be happier with the results. Thank you to the entire team involved.
