This alphabet set contains letters cut in various fonts and sizes using both upper and lower case. It is a great way to decorate any class room or nursery wall! The letters range in size from the 4" tall letter "e" to the 12" tall letters "A" and "Z". The fonts and sizes shown in the picture are exactly what you will receive. This alphabet will take up approximately 4’ by 3’ of wall space.

I can cut this set from a variety of materials ranging from 1/4" thick MDF to 3/4" thick birch. The set shown in the picture is a 1/2" thick birch set. MDF is cheaper then plywood and provides a smooth surface for painting, but it cannot be stained and the edges sometimes need multiple coats of paint. The Birch I use is cabinet grade and can accept a stain, but it is more expensive material and it takes longer to hand sand so it is more expensive. The thicker letters look beefier on the wall because they stick out more, but they are also heavier.

This set will not come with mounting hardware because people use these letters in so many different ways. The letters are light enough that most people hang them on their walls with a foam adhesive tape or even a thick glue dot. It is also possible to purchase a package of sawtooth hangers at any discount or hardware store for under a dollar.

Please allow a little more then a week for me to cut your set as I cut each order after it is placed. I choose to ship via FedEx (3 day) with a tracking number. This is the reason for the shipping cost.

If you are looking for individual letters, or an alphabet set cut in a different design then please check out my other auctions! 

FAQ
How do I finish these letters?
MDF has an extremely smooth surface and is designed to be painted. The birch alphabet sets can either be stained or painted. If you do choose to paint your letters we recommend an oil based primer like Kilz be applied first. Doing this ensures the plywood/MDF edges are sealed and makes applying the finishing coat of paint much easier. If these letters are going to be within reach of little hands then we recommend the final coat of paint be something child friendly. 


How do I mount these letters to the wall?
It is possible to purchase a package of sawtooth hangers that simply tap into the back of each letter from any hardware store for less then a dollar. We have found though that in most situations a simple glue dot or two stuck on the back of the letter will hold indefinitely and won’t put holes in your walls. Obviously the thinner sets are lighter and easier to hang, but they don't look quite as beefy on the wall. We found the 1/2" set to be the best balance between the two, but choose whatever works best in your situation!


Can I change out letters in the set?
We want you to be able to customize the set and we will work with you on changing out a few letters if there is a particular font or two that you just can’t live with. We would prefer not to make massive changes. If you have very specific requirements we would be happy to cut a customized set for you at a slightly increased price.
