We like to think of each of our unfinished alphabet sets as little pieces of blank canvas waiting on an artist. Each of the letters in this set can be finished in a different way. They can be painted solid colors, with stripes or polka dots, covered in decoupage, wrapped in string, etc. In this way they can bring life, texture, and warmth to a nursery wall.

This alphabet set contains letters cut in various fonts and sizes using both upper and lower case. The letters range in size from the 4 inch tall letter "e" to the 12 inch tall letters "A" and "Z". The fonts and sizes shown in the picture are exactly what you will receive and if hung as displayed in the picture the set will take up approximately 4 foot by 3 foot of wall space.

This alphabet set provides a great deal of value for the money. While there may be other alphabets sold on Etsy, most of them are cut with a laser (which leaves burnt edges and limits the finishing options) or the set is significantly smaller, or the material that is used is substandard. A good quality sheet of birch plywood like we use can cost $50+. This quality means no voids (which could show up in the letters), it is environmentally friendly, and domestically produced.

In order to make the set affordable we offer this set in a variety of material options. The set shown in the picture is a 1/2" thick birch set, however, the most affordable option is MDF. MDF has a smooth surface which is excellent for painting.

If you don't have the time or space to paint the letters yourself, we do offer a painted version of this set.

Please allow a little more then a week for me to cut, sand and ship your set as I cut each order after it is placed. If you are in a hurry please contact us about the possibility of a rush job. There are times when we can get a set cut the very next day!

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?
Absolutely! This alphabet set is your project and we want you to have it exactly like you want. If you want a letter's font switched of the size of a letter adjusted slightly then please use the notes section of the order to indicate your changes.
