Wooden Letters and More since 1961

Our Wooden Letters are made from premium solid walnut and oak. Ranging in size from 1/2" to 5". Available in English and Greek along with numbers and punctuation. Prefinished with a clear natural oil enhancing the beauty of the wood. Our Single Wooden Letters are made from walnut and range in thickness from 1/8" to 1/4". Our Double Wooden Letters are a combination of a Walnut Letter glued on to an oak background, giving the letter a unique contrast in color that will last a life time. If you prefer to paint, the prefinish allows for a smooth coat of paint to be applied without blotching areas which are common in unfinished soft woods. All Alphabet Wooden Letters have a beveled edge which enhances the raised letter effect. Great for creating beautiful wall or door signs, name plates for your desk, wall plates or door plates.

In the early 1960s we developed the solid walnut letter with beveled edges and we continue to manufacture the highest quality wooden letters available today.

Other products we manufacture include signs, desk nameplates, wooden office accessories, notepad holders, keychains, dry-mark boards, award plaques and picture frames all designed for personalization with our wooden letters.

All of our products are made from the highest-quality hardwoods -- primarily white oak and walnut. All products are pre-finished with a clear oil finish that enhances the natural color and grain of the wood.

Style of typefaces List of typefaces Illustration of different font types and the names of specific specimens Because an abundance of typefaces have been created over the centuries, they are commonly categorized according to their appearance. At the highest level (in the context of Latin-script fonts), one can differentiate Roman, Blackletter, and Gaelic types. Roman types are in the most widespread use today, and are sub-classified as serif, sans serif, ornamental, and script types. Historically, the first European fonts were blackletter, followed by Roman serif, then sans serif and then the other types. The use of Gaelic faces was restricted to the Irish language, though these form a unique if minority class. Typefaces may be monospaced regardless of whether they are Roman, Blackletter, or Gaelic. Symbol typefaces are non-alphabetic. The Cyrillic script comes in two varieties, Roman type and traditional Slavonic type. Roman typefaces Serif typefaces The three traditional styles of serif typefaces used for body text: old-style, transitional and Didone, represented by Garamond, Baskerville and Didot. Serif, or Roman, typefaces are named for the features at the ends of their strokes. Times Roman and Garamond are common examples of serif typefaces. Serif fonts are probably the most used class in printed materials, including most books, newspapers and magazines. Serif fonts are often classified into three subcategories: Old Style, Transitional, and Didone (or Modern), representative examples of which are Garamond, Baskerville, and Bodoni respectively. Old Style typefaces are influenced by early Italian lettering design.[20] Modern fonts often exhibit a bracketed serif and a substantial difference in weight within the strokes. Though some argument exists as to whether Transitional fonts exist as a discrete category among serif fonts, Transitional fonts lie somewhere between Old Style and Modern style typefaces. Transitional fonts exhibit a marked increase in the variation of stroke weight and a more horizontal serif compared to Old Style. Slab serif designs have particularly large serifs, and date to the early nineteenth century. The earliest slab serif font, Antique, later renamed Egyptian, was first shown in 1815 by the English typefounder Vincent Figgins. Roman, italic, and oblique are also terms used to differentiate between upright and two possible slanted forms of a typeface. Italic and oblique fonts are similar (indeed, oblique fonts are often simply called italics) but there is strictly a difference: italic applies to fonts where the letter forms are redesigned, not just slanted. Almost all serif faces have italic forms; some sans-serif faces have oblique designs. (Most faces do not offer both as this is an artistic choice by the font designer about how the slanted form should look.) Sans serif typefaces The sans-serif Helvetica typeface Main article: Sans serif Sans serif (lit. without serif) designs appeared relatively recently in the history of type design. The first, similar to slab serif designs, was shown in 1816 by William Caslon IV. Sans serif fonts are commonly but not exclusively used for display typography such as signage, headings, and other situations demanding legibility above high readability. The text on electronic media offers an exception to print: most web pages and digitized media are laid out in sans serif typefaces because serifs often detract from readability at the low resolution of displays.[citation needed] Many have minimal variation in stroke width, creating the impression of a minimal, simplified design. A well-known and popular sans serif font is Max Miedinger's Helvetica, popularized for desktop publishing by inclusion with Apple Computer's LaserWriter laserprinter and having been one of the first readily available digital typefaces. Arial, popularized by Microsoft, is a common Helvetica substitute. Other fonts such as Futura, Gill Sans, Univers and Frutiger have also remained popular over many decades.
