3D Signage, Profile Cut Signage
This is the name given to signs that are cut from materials with a substantial thickness to give a raised effect. Typical materials are Plastics, Polystyrene, Timber and Metal. They allow natural shadows to form around them which computer cut lettering (stickers) or painted signs cannot do. There are several techniques for mounting 3D elements including flush mounting or offset mounting. Further enhancements include led lighting which can be used to amplify the graphic elements at night or during the day where applicable.
