Pure 24K gold is applied to any Gemini Formed
Plastic Letters. The finish result is not matched by any paint,
treatment, or other base metal. Gold Leaf is truly the gold standard of
the industry. Completely weatherable, installations last a generation
before re-leafing is required due to ewear and tear in most
applications. Round and prismatic styles are recommended for best
results. Call for a quote on this process, which might also extend lead
times on your order.

Chrome looking finishes do
not necessarily require metal substrates in actual hexavalent chrome

The accurate positioning and secure installation of letters is essential to a professional- looking sign. It's also comforting to know they won't fall off and hit someone walking below. The installation recommendations shown nere are offered only to help sign professionals choose a basic mounting method. There are many other correct methods used by sign professionals. We urge installers to secure letters firmly as letters that have fallen down and broken are neither a source of pride nor profit to anyone.
GLASS: Most plastic letters & logos can be installed safely on glass with pads and silicone. Some installers prefer a good double faced tape to silicone or use a combination of the two (based on installation}.
PLASTIC: If bonding plastic to plastic, typically a good solvent works best. Letters & logos ordered plain may be bonded flush to a flat plastic sheet.
METAL/CORRUGATED: While a Combination or Combination All mount can be used on corrugated metal, installations are made easier if you can per-assembled parts on rails in your shop and install in sections.
STUCCO: A Combination All mount is ideal for most stucco. Adhesive-filled holes and simple adhesive on pads will bond letters well to a Stucco surface.
LARGER LETTERS: Pad Mount is only recommended for plastic letters less than 24'' tall. For larger letters and most metal letters we recommend Stud, Combination or Combination All mounts.
DOUBLE FACED TAPE: When using Double Faced Tape, Gemini recommends using it in combination with silicone or some other adhesive.
RAIL MOUNTS: Rail Mount is a good method of mounting a group of letters as a unit to an irregular surface such as corrugated metal, wood siding, shingles, shakes and corrugated plastic.
The rails are most commonly made of aluminum or acrylic strips. If using rails, specify "in line for rail when ordering.
NOTE: Always use an experienced/licensed professional sign Installer and adhere to all local, state and federal sign regulations. Proper Installation procedures are vital to the safe. reliable function of all architectural sign letters as well as the personal safety of those performing the installation. Standard safety procedures and precautions ( Including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal Injury or Improper service, which could damage the letters or compromise their safety.
