Hanging Options

There are a number of ways to hang your sign. Please note that we do not install any hardware with your sign in order to

ensure you are able to use mounting tape, the most popular method for this type of sign.  

Option 1: Strong Adhesive Tapes (Most Popular)**

Adhesive tapes or strips may be used to mount our lightweight signs. It is very important when using mounting tapes that you follow the installation instructions very closely and use the bond appropriate for your wall surface. 

3M Mounting Strips

3M strips are ideal for hanging due to their typical ease of removal. However it is important to note that 3M mounting strips are not suitable for textured walls and provide a less permanent bond than strong mounting tapes. Please evaluate carefully if 3M strips are appropriate for your hanging application.

Gorilla Mounting Tapes

Gorilla mounting tapes are a heavy duty tape and create a permanent bond between your sign and wall. Gorilla tapes can be used on both textured and untextured walls. Please be aware that Gorilla Mounting Tape is a permanent tape and may cause surface damage if removed. If tape must be removed, the mounted object must be removed first. This may best be achieved by prying from one corner. Next, mounting tape can be removed by slowly stretching the tape parallel to the surface.

Option 2: Hammer Nails into the Wall & Hang From Letter Curves

This method works for our script name signs and monograms, as you can simply hammer nails into your wall and hang the sign directly onto the nails from the curves of the letters.

To install your sign using this method, it easiest to do so with 2 people. 1 person simply needs to hold the sign in place where you would like it to be hung, while the other person, places nails just underneath the letters or loops of the sign and hammers them into the wall. Nails should not be fully hammered into the wall so that the letters of loops can "rest" or "hang" on the nails. Typically placement for nails is near the center as well as the far right and far left letters of the name.


Option 3: Install Sawtooth Hanger

With our round signs, most of our customers choose to use mounting tapes for installation, there are some that prefer to hang via hardware. In this case simply install the sawtooth hanger onto the back of your round sign and hang from a nail.

*Please note that we, in no way, accept any liability for the way your sign is hung on your wall as this is dependent on your preferred installation method, as well as the surface of your wall, and the care you take in installing your sign.
