Outdoor backlit letters FAQ

How to determine the right outdoor backlit letters size?

In our experience, there is a roughly proportional relationship between the height of the outdoor backlit letters and the best visible distances , generally 10 to 12 times. For example, a 10 inches outdoor backlit letters can be distinguished well from a distance of about 100 inches to 120 inches. So choose a fittest visible distances based on your request, then you will know how height your letters should be.

What's the best fonts for outdoor backlit letters?

In fact for us, we care more about the minimum stroke width than the fonts. We need the minimum width of the strokes reach 10mm(0.39"), else we will have not enough space to place the LED in the letters shell, and if it is too small we even can not produce the 3D letters shell.
As long as the above requirements are met, in fact you can choose the font you need according to your personal preferences.
If you prioritize readability, then sans serif fonts that are thick like Helvetica or Arial will maximize your outdoor backlit letters' visibility. Many contemporary and modern backlit letters are designed to be highly visible.
If you need your letters have some special style, then you can see the scrip fonts, cursive fonts, thin, decorative font styles, and serif-style fonts, though they might difficult to read or see from a distance, they have rich style.
BTW, the spacing of outdoor backlit letters is crucial for readability. Designers call the spacing as "kerning". Too big or too close kerning all will create visibility issues.
