Metal is the material of choice for so many sign projects. It is durable, stands out, looks professional, and, in many cases, is very affordable. With the right equipment, metal is also customizable, and can be shaped into almost any design to create an eye-catching, custom made sign.
At Blue Dot Signs, our metal letters provide a creative way to display your company name, share a motto, or encapsulate your brand. We offer a range of customization options to ensure we can create the best metal sign that matches your needs, and our metal lettering can be installed on walls, shelves, or hanging in your business.

When it comes to creating a sign that fits a specific modern and classic appearance, metal letters and metal signs are a top choice. They can be flat or 3-dimensional, allowing them to stand away from the wall for a more visually impressive impact. They can also be uniquely shaped, large, and bright, making them difficult to miss. Our variety of customization options for metal lettering provides endless solutions for text based signage.
At Blue Dot Signs, we design and fabricate each sign by hand, making it possible to make almost any custom idea into reality. Our wall signs are built from high quality metallic materials that can be used in a multitude of spaces. With our equipment, we can craft any of the following wall signs:
The thickness of the letters depend on the material chosen, and many are available in multiple widths for options that best match the desired appearance and location.
For our metal letter signs, we can individually cut each metal letter on a CNC router. This allows for precision shaping for any font, even those that are custom designed, like a brand name or cursive typeface, so the options are endless. We do, however, have standard fonts that are known to look clear and professional when crafted in metal such as:
For a striking look, we can also create illuminated letters. These can be made by installing LED lighting behind each letter so that the lighting reflects onto the wall behind the text. We can also install lights on the front of the metal letters for a more classic look.
Blue Dot Signs also offers a variety of in-house color choices for our metallic signs. While many of our signs are designed with the traditional metal colors (brass, copper, aluminum, brushed bronze, and more), with our Pantone color matching capabilities, we can also add custom shades to create the palette that matches with your company colors.
The appearance of metal wall letters can also be customized through different finishing options. Most metals are available in a glossy or matte finish. Brushed letters have a soft, glowing appearance while shiny finishes will reflect light to really stand out.
Because of their potentially multi-dimensional appearance and the way they can be designed to sit flush or stand away from the wall, metal letters are particularly adapted for drawing attention. Ideally, this means more business and more sales. Letters also have the benefit of being:
Professional - Metal has a bold and refined appearance that naturally appears high in quality. With a smooth finish, metal lettering can emphasize the professionalism of your company or the value of your building.
Despite their appearance, metal letters are not overly expensive and the variety means there will always be one within your budget. Metals like aluminum are actually cost-effective, and different finishes can be used to imitate a higher-grade metal without the higher price.
With a look ranging from sleek and professional to crafty and vintage, metal letters are a great addition to any business to display your name or other chosen text. Popular business uses include:
Metal letters could even be used for home or event decor to add a personalized and memorable touch to your space.
If you have been seeking a sign that will add a special look to your business, metal lettering provides outstanding value. Blue Dot Signs has years of experience in crafting these signs and can work with you to develop the lettering that reflects your company.
Both the metals and our services are affordable, but the actual price is impacted by several factors. Give us a call and we can discuss your options and ideas to provide you with a quote.
The ability to withstand the elements will depend on the metal. Some will rust and tarnish, a process which will be significantly sped by rain and snow. If you intend to install your metal lettering outside, we will recommend more durable metals.
Permits can be necessary for some signage, especially any that will be placed outside your business. We have permit research and filing services that can determine if a permit is required. You can also check with your municipality, property owner, or building supervisor.
If your metal letters will be affixed to the wall, they can generally be installed with the included hardware and some handyman experience. We can also discuss other means of installation if you would rather hang your letters or display them on a shelf. Installation services are available as well.
Of course. We work with any type of client, from large businesses to individuals and no sign project is too small. In fact, custom metal letters are a popular choice for wedding, party, and home decor.
The maintenance steps will depend on the base material of your sign. Aluminum and stainless steel will only need an occasional cleaning with a soft cloth and gentle cleaning solution. Metals like brass will require occasional polishing to keep them looking shiny and new.
When it comes to text signs, the submission can be done through a Photoshop, PDF, Word, or other file that conveys the desired font. You will want to be sure to include information on sizing and material type, but we will work with you to ensure we have all the necessary information.
Yes, we can. We have a team of expert designers who can create a standard or custom font design for your signage. They are able to meet you wherever you are in the design process.
The producing time for wall letters depends on the number of letters, their size, and the material. We complete the process in house for the fastest possible turnaround time, and we also welcome rush orders. The best way to determine how long your project will take is to give us a call. We can discuss your design and schedule to provide a timeline.
