DRILL PATTERN: (for all other stud mounted products) Computer-generated tracing of letters with hand punched hole locations of studs, printed on 60# white grid paper.  Once taped to wall, hole locations are then drilled and filled with adhesive.

STENCIL: is a computer generated, full size cutout, designed for smaller letters, logos or bars.  Typically used to install double face tape letters.  Guide is taped to wall, letters are set inside cutout and adhered to wall.  Gemini layout team will determine if Stencil or Split Stencil is best for your order. 

SPLIT STENCIL: is a computer generated, partial cutout of bottom portion of the letters above the baseline, plus 2" below the baseline that provides a perfect way to install plain, pad or double face tape flat cut out letters.  This split stencil is generated using the same file that we use to produce your letters.  Gemini layout team will determine if Stencil or Split Stencil is best for your order.

SPACING GUIDE:A visual reference guide, typically used for pad mounted letters.  The letters in a specific copy are spelled out and properly spaced on a long pattern table or computer generated.  A narrow (approximately 2") piece of paper contains small hash marks or plotted lower portions of the letters.  Guide is secured to the wall with tape, by the installer, and provides a visual guide for installing letters.

LINE DRAWING:An 8-1/2" x 11" drawing, showing the letter style and copy desired.  A description of the style, size and material will be provided on the drawing.
