Built Up Letters

Built upletters are a type of dimensional letter that provide an impactful part of a visual communication solution for any business, organisation or outlet. Custom made built up letters are designed and installed by FASTSIGNS and will help you accomplish your visual communication challenges.

How are they constructed?

Built up letters are graphic pieces that are three-dimensional and can often have types of illumination within or can be backlit. Built up letters can include numbers, characters, letter and more to create an overall branded statement. The individual letter components can be constructed of various materials including acrylic and aluminium sheeting in many colours, sizes and fonts due to their flexible nature. They can also be face illuminated or reverse illuminated, sometimes non illuminated. Here are a few examples:

  1. Face Illuminated Built Up Letters

These common types of built up letters are build to ensure that light comes through an acrylic piece in the letters that is translucent. They can easily attract attention as they are large and simple to read at any time of day. They enhance a building and make your business or brand stand out.

  1. Reverse Illuminated Built Up Letters

These types of built up letters have several names that also include halo built up letters or backlit built up letters. Similar to the name, the lighting effect makes them look as if they are floating off of the wall. Installers use spacers to create a halo type glow around each of the letters - an application that enhances the professionalism of the sign. They are often constructed from aluminium, stainless steel or other metals.

  1. Combination-Lit or Front/Back Lit Built Up Letters

These types of dimensional letters that use a combination of front and back lit can take a sign to another level with a wow-factor. They also enable you to incorporate a variety of colours so there is a distinct difference between the front with a glow and the backlighting that has a halo effect.
