Tools you will need:
Unpack your letters, installation pattern and hardware.
Screw aluminum studs into each hole on the back of every letter. (wear protective gloves when handling aluminum)
Tape up the installation pattern level with brick, board or trim. *All Installation patterns have center and level guide lines marked out.
Center Punch the drill hole pattern before drilling.
Drill all the holes level and on center and the letters will fit perfectly. Clean out the holes the best you can.
Apply (optional) spacers and clear silicone to each stud before inserting into predrilled holes. Push at the stud locations only! Simply push the letters into holes evenly and slowly. Re-drill or clean out holes as necessary.
Clean any debris and or fingerprints off with micro-fiber towel and alcohol. Clean occasionally with soap and water.
Installing on a fence
If you do not want studs coming out of the back of your fence you can cut the studs down to 1/2″ long, and only drill 5/8″ into fence board. Apply tape to the drill bit at 1/2″ to 5/8″ depth.
-When you tape your template on brick, be aware of where the holes line up you want to avoid block edges. Especially periods and small letters. You may need to move the template a little.
-If your hole lines up with the bricks edge you can either take your time and drill it out, or remove the stud (if possible). You can only remove a stud if there are more than two on the number or group of letters.
-Wood installation ream the holes a little larger if the fit is too tight. You could increase bit size to 13/64 or 7/32.
– Never force a fit. It should be tight, but don’t try to bend the acrylic to line up hole. Drill slightly bigger if necessary.
-If you have a descender like a “g” or”y” Center the sign on the capital letters not the entire sign footprint.
-Four stud lengths are available 1 inch, 1.5 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch. Spacers are all 1/4″ and are included. All hardware is 10/24 and aluminum.
