What do you recommend for attaching acrylic letters to dibond?
I don't know whether I am better off using a epoxy resin or some kind of tape.

I use a VHB tape by 3M. It is probably not the cheapest option, but quick and easy with no mess.

I know that people do use epoxy resin as well, so would be keen to hear what other users use.

Penlock....A 2 part adhesive in same tube, the gun and mixer nozles are an expensive outlay but it is as close to a weld type connection as you can get

Hi
I agree with the penlock it might be a bit expensive but it is very good , we have just done a sign in stoke with pink letters on gold dibond (not my choice of colours) but it worked really well.

Hi,

I have used penlock and swear by it.
It is expensive to buy first as it comes
with the mixing gun, but you can then
just buy the penlock cartridge which is
about £15.00.
