Gemini makes plastic, changeable copy sign letters for use on marquee signs and readerboards. Outdoor reader boards are usually pole mounted and stand at least 6 feet above ground. Signs using changeable letters often require extension poles to help the business owner change letters from the ground, without having to use a ladder. Gemini makes a variety of shapes, styles and sizes of plastic sign letters, including Pronto, Dimensional Slotted A and B styles, Snap Lok and Moonglo brands.
Pronto are flat, rigid sign letters that slide in and behind tracks or rails and are commonly seen at fast food chains, schools, theaters and small roadside businesses. Pronto letters are screen printed onto clear acrylic panels that have raised edges to help prevent scratching and molded “feet” to help remove debris from the sign tracks as the letters are moved back and forth. To change any flat letter from the ground, we offer extension poles with suction cups in several brands.
Dimensional Slotted A and B style letters are formed, 3-D plastic letters commonly seen on historic theater marquee signs. They are sturdy and more readable because of their deep return and wide stroke and come in a flat face with a matte finish, beveled face or grooved face. These letters can be changed from the ground using a Gemini Slotted Change Arm.
Snap Lok letters use metal hooks and spring clips on the back to attach to the sign tracks and must be changed by hand.
Moonglo reverse style letters are clear on black panels that offer an opaque sign face while eliminating light leaks with a beveled overlap. Your sign face will show through the clear letter, resulting in a black sign with white lettering. These flat letters can be changed from the ground using a Pronto Change Arm pole with cup.
