Lightweight Letters.

Tap Room Changeable Sign Board for Beer MenusIn early 2022 we responded to this common diplema and created ‘lightweight letters’.  This means, if you heart is set on creating a changeable menu board, there is now a more cost effective solution. Lighttweight letters are easy to use. Moreover, it takes very little time to prepare. Rather than buying packs pre collated and stacked in sets, Lightweight letters come in sheets. Furthermore, each sheet has all the same letters as standard packs. Simply and gently punch out the pre cut letters.

Importantly, lightweight letters have the same great retro appearance. What’s more, ink is black and the tiles are clear. However these are only intended for indoor use.

The Print Process

Lightweight letters are produced to keep costs as low as possible but retain quality. Achieving this goal is our main aim. Therefore we rely upon the digital printing process. This means you need to consider the application of these letters very carefully first. Consequently, digital printing can not produce the same solid black ink as screen printing. Nor can we print on exactly the same thickness of plastic material. Instead we use a much thinner acetate. This means they are not intended for lightboxes or signage where light is projected from behind. As a result, the light may penetrate the ink, resulting in a milky grey letter tile.

Importantly though you will immediately feel the tile is much lighter than standard pack tiles.
