Project Overview

Giant letters have become a popular feature for displays, events, and exhibitions. Molygran can provide giant letters in any supplied font and size required. Manufactured from high quality expanded polystyrene, containing a flame retardant ensuring it complies with all Fire Regulations for corporate events, they are the perfect “wow factor” addition.

Letters can be made freestanding for events, such as a giant MR & MRS or giant LOVE for weddings. Letters can also be made to be attached to walls to provide signage or branding.  There is no limit to what can be done, if you have an idea, let us know and we will bring it to life for you!

Giant polystyrene letters can be left in their natural clean white finish or can be painted any colour to match colour schemes, or alternatively they can also be glittered to a colour of your choice (you can see an example of glittering here). The giant letters can also be finished with acrylic, foamex, vinyl or even polyurethane to make the letters weatherproof. Giant light up letters are also possible using LED lights .

The brief The brief

For a dance presentation evening, a giant “UNIQUE” sign was required as a feature for the stage. At 1.7m high, they required a material which would be durable enough withstand the delivery along with the busy atmosphere of the presentation evening. The giant letters also required an eye-catching finish with the room being dimly lit, they decided on a glitter finish to catch and glisten in the disco lights.
With an art deco theme in mind, it was down to Molygran to find a suitable font that would allow the giant letters to be free standing…

The solution The solution

Expanded polystyrene provided the perfect alternative to traditional materials for giant letters. At 1.7m high, the alternatives to polystyrene such as wood would have required much more manpower to move it, in comparison to requiring just one person when done in polystyrene. Each letter was cut at 250mm deep to allow them to be free standing.
The polystyrene letters were then finished with gold glitter which gave them the “WOW” factor they were looking for.

The weekend went really well and the staging worked well and looked fab, I was really pleased.
