Frequently Asked Questions about wooden letters and signs

How do I make my own wooden name signs?

Making your own wooden name signs is a fun and easy project that can be completed in just a few hours.

All you need is a piece of wood, a saw, and some paint.

When we did this process manually, we used to mirror the image of the graphic or letters we wanted to use.

That way we could cut out the letter from the back side with a jigsaw and it kept the smoother finish on the front side.

What paint should I use on wooden letters?

Rustoleum chalk paint

There are a few things to consider when deciding what paint to use on wooden letters.

One is the type of finish you want. If you want a matte finish, chalk spray paint is my go-to option. It goes on smoothly and provides good coverage.

I love chalk spray paint because it's very forgiving. You don't have to prime the wood before you use it.

Is mounting tape the same as double-sided tape?

Mounting tape is a type of double-sided tape that is used to attach objects to surfaces.

It is made from a strong adhesive that can hold onto both smooth and rough surfaces.

What is the strongest holding double-sided tape?

 When it comes to choosing the strongest tape, there are a lot of variables to consider - material, width, thickness, adhesive quality, etc.

But when it comes to hanging hardware tape specifically, this video provides a pretty good overview of the strength capabilities of each kind of tape.
