Install Routed Letters & Logos with Studs

Procedure:
(1) Remove all contents from the packaging and place on the ground in correct order (spelling).

(2) Tape paper template in place on the wall. Be sure to step back and make sure it’s level and centered.

Cut the excess off the paper template may make things easier, but note the graphics are square to the paper.

(3) Drill through all the holes indicated on the paper template using a 3/16” masonry bit.

(4) Dip and end of each ‘stud’ into the open end of the adhesive tube (included in packaging), then screw into the back of each character hole you plan to use.

*NOTE: There are more pre-drilled holes in the back per character than required to hold the letter in place. We do this should your installation have issues with drilling into the facade because something is in the way from drilling the hole. Example – It is OKAY to only use 3 out of any 4 holes for ‘studs’ per character.

(5) Once all ‘studs’ are in a character, dip the receiving end of each stud end into the open end of the tube, then ‘pop’ the character/element into position, working your way across.

*NOTE: Leave the paper template in place during this process – it will help you ensure proper placement as the outline of each element is included on the paper template.

* SUGGESTION: You can leave them sticking off the wall with a gap to make them appear to ‘float’ off the wall. This will create a drop shadow with the sun, and will make the letters more visible. Keep the ‘gap’ consistent.

(6) Once everything is in place, rip the paper template away. Excessive adhesive can easily be cleaned up at this time.

Additional Notes:

• The hole placements in the back of each character are on horizontal lines that should match the mortar joints in
the brick facade.

• If holes don’t match mortar joints, feel free to drill 3/16” hole 1/2” deep in the letter to get a stud where you want it.
To prevent drilling too deep, wrap tape around your drill bit marking 1/2” so you know to stop drilling when you
hit the tape.

• Optional – you can try to use 3M double stick tape on the backs to hold each letter in place while the adhesive dries overnight (if you want to ignore using the studs mounting), but it may not stick to the brick very well!

How to Install Your New Sign Monument

Check out the video below to see how simple it is to install your new sign monument:

Our made-to-order signage solutions are designed and engineered to meet both the structural municipality requirements of your area and the longevity of lifetime use. Our years of experience will assist you throughout the entire process. Here is a diagram illustrating the fundamentals of the sign monument installation process.

While most of our sign monuments can easily be managed by a few strong hands, there are times when equipment makes the installation task easier.

This example illustrates a 12 foot high vertical monument model design that was too tall for individuals to lift. The customer arranged a bucket truck from a local rental shop and used the foam packing material to protect the sign while lifting it up and sliding it down on the steel installation pipes.

Yes, we brag that our sign monuments are designed to rest directly on the ground without the need for a concrete pad, but in this particular case wind load was a factor with the sign being tall and narrow. We provided the specifications for the concrete footer details, included a wood form for the concrete form and supplied the schedule 40 steel pipe.

This customer saved a small fortune versus hiring a local contractor and mason to complete a simple project that met all local Code!
