V-Bottom

The V-Bottom style is also called V-Cut, V-Carve, Simulated Prismatic or

Chisel-Cut. Although some may call these "prismatic", we make a

distinct differentiation between Simulated Prismatic and

True Prismatic.  The Simulated Prismatic mold letters can be cut on a

conventional CNC machine and so are affordably priced.  The True

Prismatic letters, if done properly, really need to be hand-carved and

so are more expensive.

The standard V-Bottom letters are the most popular because they look

great and are relatively inexpensive. With larger letters though, one

may have to go with the Flat-Bottom style.  Diagram #1 on this page

explains this.  (The Flat-Bottom mold letters are also relatively

inexpensive.)

One interesting feature of our V-Bottom mold letters is the "secondary

bevel" that we add.  You can see this in diagram #2 on this page.  What

this does is give you a little "fudge room".  It ensures that the visible

letter recess in the wall will be true to the letter.  Without the

"secondary bevel", the letter edges can get wavy if the casting isn't

perfect.
