Century Gothic is a slightly lighter letter style that looks modern but yet has classic lines and details. These Century Gothic font wood letters are perfect for names on a wall in a business or for directional signage. This is our upper case style only. Look for lower case here.
This is a 100% American Made product. We make every letter that you order when you order them in our shop. This is not something that we stock, so changes can easily be made for you and they are always guaranteed to be in stock. Please contact us prior to ordering or include a note when you are checking out if you would like to make changes to the standard thick wood letters that we offer.
Our thick wood letters are cut on a CNC router. There are differences when we cut on a laser and a CNC machine. One of the major differences is that the CNC machine uses a cutter and the laser uses light to cut the wood. Because these letters are cut with a CNC machine, there are limitations to how it can cut. An interior square corner is impossible because the bit is round so there will be a slightly round radius on any interior square corner. The edges of the wood will need a light sanding to make them completely smooth.
We cut our plywood letters with Baltic Birch plywood. This is not cheap plywood. There are distinct advantages to using Baltic Birch plywood versus lesser quality plywood's. The main difference is in the edge quality. You will find more plies per inch and no voids in the plies. This will make the decorative wood letters more stable (less warping) and they can be painted, stained or decorated easier will less finish work. The plywood that we use also has no VOC's and is formaldehyde free so it is safe to be around and use. We use this stuff all day every day, if it wasn't safe to use and turn into fine dust and smoke, we would not have it around.
The size of each letter is based upon an uppercase A. Each font is completely different and there are certain fonts where the letters are "non-conforming" in size. Please realize that a lower case letter that is ordered in whatever size it is that you are ordering is based upon the uppercase A and might be significantly smaller than what is described in the size. If you have any questions about sizing, please call us prior to ordering. We work in the digital world and can easily draw up anything that you want virtually to see how things will fit together based upon your space available. We want you to have the correct product the first time. Contacting us will be easier, faster and we promise you will be happy that you did!
