Built up stainless steel letters are a very popular signage solution, giving a unique look to buildings. Depending on the finish they can give a chic, bold, modern or even futuristic look.
The letters can either be mirror finish (polished), satin finish (with a “grain”) or painted to any colour you desire (our paint shop can match Pantone, RAL, BS, Dulux or just a sample given to us). We can also gild the lettering with gold leaf, or metallic paint. It is often a requirement that the letters be made from “316 grade” stainless steel which is an extremely corrosion resistant material used in marine applications.
The built-up letters can be manufactured from almost any font to almost any size. The “Returns” (the 3D “depth”) of the lettering is typically designed at around 10% of the letters height, but this can be varied to achieve different looks and feels to the lettering.
For customers wanting to install the lettering themselves, Ward Signs provide full installation instructions, brass stand of locators or grouting rods and a full-size layout of the lettering. Alternatively for those without a step ladder, our fitting teams are an option if you are looking for years of experience and a smooth installation.

Fabulous and quick service received from Wards for new signage. Would highly recommend
I commissioned Wards of Bristol to produce a bronze memorial plaque, which featured the intricate engraving of a scarce butterfly. The resulting work is beautiful and has completely surpassed my expectations.
The service received was also fast, courteous and well-priced, and I would gladly recommend Wards to anyone I know.
Ward Signs was incredibly professional, prompt, and just plain wonderful to deal with. The quality of the product far exceeded my expectations; I absolutely will order from Ward again!
