  • For outdoor classic backlit metal letters, we need the Min. width of strokes reach 10mm(0.39"), and for indoor classic backlit letters, it could be 8mm(0.32") or even smaller sometimes, depending on the font detail.
  • Too small letters have limited space in the letters shell because it is too hard to place the LED lights evenly, unless using PCB LED, which fit for mass production only.
  • In order to get the best halo effect, we suggest making the classic backlit metal letters off the wall about 10mm~20mm (0.39"~0.79")
  • Since the classic backlit metal letters must off the wall, we suggest hiring the professional workers to install it, so that the surface of all the individual part could be in one plane.
