Cast Letters

Cast Letters

With an air of elegance unlike any other signage product, cast letters from Matthews are the result of decades of experience coupled with state-of-the-art technology.

Cast letters are made by pouring molten metal into sand molds, a process that results in a highly durable, highly distinctive way to project your image. Cast letters can be produced in many standard letter styles or the custom letter style of your choice (with supplied digital artwork). Cast letters are a great economic alternative when multiple sets of the same text are required. ImageCast™ letters are also available.
