  5. 5.  The most common methods of installing metal letters and logos are via flush stud mount or stud mounted with spacers. Copyright ImpactSigns.com Flush Stud Mount Stud Mounted With Spacers
  6. 6. The two methods are similar, with each using studs inserted into drilled holes, but the second uses spacers between the wall and the letter, whereas flush mounted places the letters flush against the wall. Here’s a step-by-step outline of how to install a metal sign. Copyright ImpactSigns.com
  7. 7.  Step One: Clean the wall surface and place the installation pattern on the wall where you plan to install the sign. Use a level to ensure the sign is installed at a straight level height. Copyright ImpactSigns.com
  8. 8.  Step Two: Use a pencil to mark each spot where holes will be drilled in the wall.  Step Three: Drill holes in each marked spot. When done, remove pattern from the wall. Copyright ImpactSigns.com
  9. 9.  Step Four: Place the adhesive that came with your sign into the holes for one letter.  Step Five: If using spacers, place the spacers on the studs that protrude from the back of each letter, so that the spacers sit between the wall and the letters. Copyright ImpactSigns.com
  10. 10.  Step Six: Holding the letter in line with the pre- drilled holes, place the studs on the back of the letter into the adhesive-filled holes in the wall. Repeat with each letter Copyright ImpactSigns.com
  11. 11.  Some metal signs may require attaching one or two rails to the wall using a similar method as above, and then simply sliding the metal letters into the rails. The key to successful installation is to use and level a pattern before drilling any holes. Copyright ImpactSigns.com
