- Strong Adhesive Tapes
- Sawtooth Hanger
Heads up, we don't install any hardware with your sign. That way, you can easily use mounting tape, which is the most popular way to hang our awesome name signs.
Installation Method: Hammer + Nails
3M strips are ideal for hanging due to their typical ease of removal. However, it is important to note that 3M mounting strips are not suitable for textured walls and provide a less permanent bond than strong mounting tapes. Please evaluate carefully if 3M strips are appropriate for your hanging application.
Gorilla mounting tapes are a heavy duty tape and create a permanent bond between your sign and wall. Gorilla tapes can be used on both textured and untextured walls. Please be aware that Gorilla Mounting Tape is a permanent tape and may cause surface damage if removed. If tape must be removed, the mounted object must be removed first. This may best be achieved by prying from one corner. Next, mounting tape can be removed by slowly stretching the tape parallel to the surface.
Hammer Nails into Wall
This method works for our script name signs and monograms, as you can simply hammer nails into your wall and hang the sign directly onto the nails.
To install your sign using this method, it easiest to do so with 2 people. 1 person simply needs to hold the sign in place where you would like it to be hung, while the other person, places nails just underneath the letters or loops of the sign and hammers them into the wall. Nails should not be fully hammered into the wall so that the letters of loops can "rest" or "hang" on the nails. Typically placement for nails is near the center as well as the far right and far left letters of the name.
Please note, this method does not work for all block letters, as it depends on the shape of the letter if it can hang by gravity onto a nail. This method does not work for our round name signs, but see below for recommendations.
Install Sawtooth Hanger
With our round name signs and layered signs, most of our customers choose to use mounting tapes for installation, but there are some that prefer to hang via hardware. In this case simply install a sawtooth hanger onto the back of your round sign and hang from a nail.
Installing sawtooth hangers on a script name sign can be challenging, so we suggest the above method of hammering nails into the wall or use of mounting tapes. Nevertheless, for our block letters, attaching a sawtooth hanger is generally feasible for most fonts and serves as a great alternative if mounting tapes are not preferred.
