MALE VS FEMALE LETTERING
A "male" letter means the letter is solid.. 2 piece letters like "i" may need to be modified (parts may need to be connected with a small "bridge"). In a male sign, each letter may be separate or can be connected to something like a line underneath, artwork, or border, etc.
A "female" letter is a hole. For example a ":" (colon) is now just 2 holes. Also, some female letters needs to be 'stenciled'. For example a "B" or "4" if not stenciled would just be a hole the shape of the OUTLINE of the letter without the inside detail. One or more small 'bridges" needs to be made to hold the inside of a female the letter in place.
We use the term "raw" generally to refer to steel that is not painted. There are 2 types:
Hot rolled steel begins with a dark coating. After cutting and cleaning it will have some discoloration and will rust naturally if not protected. This type of steel, unpainted, is typically seen in rusty western style signs and metal art.
We use hot rolled steel in the thicker gauges.
We use this type of steel in the thinner gauges.
Although all raw steel products leave our facility clean, they may even rust slightly in transit.
If you wish to
speed up the rusting process, dip the item in salt water or you can spray
it with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide solution
mixed with a dash of salt (take appropriate safety precautions) .
Generally we can use any MS Word font or any free TT (true type) font.
There are a variety of websites that offer free fonts. Just let us know the name of the font and we can download it. Google FREE FONTS or check out one of the websites below:
