Illuminated Built up Lettering by Sygnet Signs

Sygnet Signs have been established since 1974 and manufacture all of their Built up Letters in-house by their skilled fabricators, who have at least 10 years experience in the sign trade.


One of Sygnet Signs specialities are 'Illuminated Built Up Letters' as they not only have their own in-house letter shop dedicated to the manufacture of Built Up Letters but they also have an in-house LED company available too. LED Solutions are a trading division of Sygnet Signs and have shared the same Leicester based premises with Sygnet since they started trading back in 2005. LED Solutions are the UK Distributor for Daehan LED who use Samsung LED chips and specialise in LED modules designed for the illumination of signage. The Daehan LED modules are IP Rated and come available in a variety of profiles and colours all with a comforting 5 year warranty.

Sygnet signs work very closely with LED Solutions in making sure that every Illuminated Built up Letter they manufacture has a bright and consistent illumination with no LED board spotting. This has allowed Sygnet to recommend and advice their clients on how best to illuminate their letters in terms of return depth or stroke width at the early stage of the quotation process.

Sales estimator at Sygnet Signs Darren Jones comments: "Here at Sygnet we always advice our clients on how best to illuminate their signs as soon as we receive the enquiry. We work together with LED Solutions and always offer an honest opinion on how we would illuminate their signs without any illumination problems."

Sygnet manufacture their built up letters to suit the type of illumination required for instance Face illuminated letters may require Rimless or Rim and Return Built Up Letters whereas Halo illuminated letters may require flat faced built up letters. On the other hand if a more complete illumination effect is required then acrylic letters can be used were the face of the letter and the returns can be fully illuminated.

Sygnet signs are starting to receive more bespoke requests for their built up letters such as open faced trough letters with LED Neon flex placed inside to create a Neon like illumination effect around the border of the letter.

Another trend seems to be for built up letters to be manufactured with a perforated face with push through LED modules placed inside to create an array of miniature bulbs illuminating the whole face of the letter.

The sales team at Sygnet have noticed over the past 6 months that the requirement for a more retro themed built up letter has been created with LED Bulbs embedded into the face of the letter in popular demand. Darren Jones again adds: "We have noticed the trend for a more retro-like built up letter to be required at the moment. The specifications we receive are for Built Up trough letters with LED Bulbs inserted inside to give a 50's theatre like design. Sygnet feel confident that their in-house expertise will allow them to offer a solution to all of their clients built up letter specifications."
