LETTERING & CREATE YOUR OWN
For quotes, words and custom sentences we measure the size on the height of the tallest letter in the font.
Tall letters normally include = capitals and bdfhklt.
The height is measured from the TALLEST of these letters. For example, some fonts have varied sizes between a capital and an upper case letter.
If you are wanting to fit a particular space please consider that any "tails" such as pqyg will add additional overall size to the height.
We can’t provide letters at an EXACT size. The way the machines cut the fonts, it will cut the letters at or very close to the size. For example, a 7cm letter, might be cut at 7.2cm in height. And this is further varied depending on the font. Some fonts have completely different sized letters, so the machine will average the 7cm (or size ordered) across those letters.
WHY IS THE MINIMUM SIZE YOU SELL 7cm?
Cut vinyl lettering is very delicate, and for the lettering to stick to the surface, there needs to be sufficient contact between the vinyl and surface. Very small and delicate lettering is firstly very difficult to install, and secondly, may not last a long time because there is not enough surface area sticking the letter to the wall.
Based on our experience in the interior graphics industry, we believe the 7cm tall letter size, is a good size for our customers to self install. Remember that if the tall letters are 7cm, the smaller letters such as “aecio” etc will be around 4-5cm depending on the font and sometimes even 2-3cm.
How will I know the width of my CREATE YOUR OWN design?
Every font has a different width because some are very narrow and condensed and others are very wide and spreadout. So what we recommend is that you consider the following.
Count the number of characters including spaces in your required text. For example: “ Tonight we live” has 15 characters including spaces. If you have chosen 7cm high letters (which will be the tall letters) then on average the width of the letters are going to be 1/2 of that. So if you choose 7cm high- consider the width of each character to be approx 3.5cm. Times the number of characters (in this examples 15) x the width 3.5cm and you get 52.5cm. Now remember there are gaps between each character. If each gap is even 1/2cm and there are 15 gaps you can add another 7cm to the width. So as an estimate for this phrase above the width will be around 60cm.
Same phrase with 20cm high letters selected. 15 characters x 10cm wide each (20cm divided by half) = 150cm wide for the characters only. Add in maybe 15cm of gaps between and your width will be 175cm wide approx.
