Dimensional letter signs are a bold, interesting way to fulfill your signage needs and help your business achieve its goals. Common in lobbies, building exteriors and mounted on interior walls, dimensional letters are an excellent solution to brand your space or point out different rooms and sections of your property to customers.

What is a Dimensional Sign and Graphic?

Dimensional signs are made up of three-dimensional letters arranged together to spell out your brand name or any other message that you’d like to send. These are powerful signs because, being three-dimensional, they “pop” for the eye. They can cast natural shadows, which will be thicker and stand out more the thicker the lettering is. 

Dimensional signs are very flexible, and they can be put to a wide range of uses. Dimensional logo and lobby signs are common. In the lobby space, 3D lettering stands out and makes a positive impression on customers, clients, and guests. The lettering looks more professional than the common alternative, which is a wall graphic.

Dimensional letters for building exteriors are another popular option. Here, dimensional letters may be seen as a bit of a step down from channel letter signs, which have built-in lighting. However, lighting can be added to dimensional letters if you want your exterior sign to have lighting. Or dimensional letters may be a great supporting sign for your main building exterior sign.
