What letter size do I need for my changeable sign?
What letter size do I need for my changeable sign? LPM stands for Letters per metre, the larger the LPM number the smaller the letter. For example LPM 22, will deliver 22 letters per metre, whilst LPM 08, our largest letter delivers only 8 letters per metre.
If planning a letterboard layout, work out what you want to say on a line, then consider the space you have for each channel. Count up the letters and spaces and see if it will fit. For example: You have 1.5 metres of space for each channel and you want LPM 22. With LPM 22 you will get 33 letters per line (1.5 x 22). But with LPM 33 you will get 42 letters per line. (1.5 x 33)
How are the plastic letters Printed?
All plastic letters are printed using black ink onto clear plastic. The print process used is screen printing, which means we acheive a solid even black. Red letters are also availble as a separate add on to your order. The best description for the red ink is ‘pillar box red’. Again these are printed using the screen printing process. If you have lots of words that are going to be used regularly on your letterboard, try word strips.
