The Sign Maker for the very best in Bespoke Signage: Help with choosing the correct Letter Height and Sign Size.

Signs Sizes and
Letter Heights

UK Sign Maker

It can be quite a task choosing the right letter height and sign size. If you know the size you want your sign or plaque - its easy - just leave the rest to our designers. However if you want a particular letter height it can be a bit more difficult to choose the appropriate sign size. The images below should help, but if you are unsure ask for a proof and both the sign size and letter height will be shown, giving you the chance to make final adjustments.

In addition we have a Design Your Own Sign program which you can send your preferred layout to our designers.
