Foamcore Letters for Signs in 2 different ways

(Here's some answers to the question I often need to answer.)

Both use foamcore.

One uses the computer.
One uses paint and glitter.

The computer letters work well for
smaller letters or more intricate fonts like 
these curly letters and can be simpler to work with.

Here's a sign done all in computer letters.
Here's a close-up.
 These letters were printed on the computer and
then mounted on foamcore.

Then they were cut out around the shape of
the outline around the letter. 
Another way to do it is to cut out each letter.
Then paint and glitter those letters.
Then mount those letters on 2 or 3 more layers.
Like this one here.

Here's a close-up of the Joshua letters.
Both require a sharp knife to 
cut around the foamcore.

We like both styles.

We can suggest which is the best option to 
fit the sign situation for both the budget and 
to get the best look.
