This can be a bit of a challenge because dimensional letters can be the first real 3-D version of your logo. When you start branding your business you usually start with printed materials – these are usually distinct flat colors. A dimensional sign can be made of materials such as acrylic, metal, foam, or PVC. Though thick materials can be cut into custom shapes and letters to accurately create your logo – you want to consider what material offers the best message. A metal style can represent a law firm as being very professional. A colorful vinyl print logo on the wall can represent a spirited daycare. You want a style that reflects your products and services, but also appeals directly to your target customers.
With so many material options for interior signs, there are plenty of possibilities at any budget. Typically, solid metal letters cost more than letters with a metallic facing.
