    Steve,

    Nice looking sign.

    Push through letters are good looking with light behind them. My only concern is moisture that will set around the letters which will cause the wood to swell or come...

    Jerry,

    Give us a treat with a photo or two.
    As you know I have dozens of PVC photo's since it's our major sign project. I can't see any reason to use 1/4" pvc when we have Dibond. That's our...

    I'd be careful suggesting in suggesting .25mm pvc for exterior use. It's not exterior rated. Please check with manufacturers suggestions. What we use for thin gauge lettering is DiBond. Have you...

    Jerry,

    PVC doesn't need sealing. For your own personal test, throw your scraps outside to and leave them for a few years. You will notice a slight color change to off white. Not enough to color...

    Jerry,

    1" PVC is $125 a sheet. It's twice the density of 18lb. HDU. We seldom use HDU. No more grit.

    Phil,

    Nice looking sign. Wish we were closer to assist.
    I do have one suggestion, and that is, we would not use HDU. Our favorite is PVC because it's easy to finish and excellent for exterior...

    Perhaps you'll attempt to give your sign a "churchey" look. What you have now looks like an entrance to a Bowling Alley. A third grade attempt. Layering won't add much without the spiritual message....

    Chad,

    Nice looking signs. Good layout and choice of letter styles.

    I'm with John.
    Another material suggestion is Trupan. It's lighter than MDF although there is MDF Light which is about the same weight as Trupan. Both carve well and are much tougher than Foam.
