Big letters – print signs

Spring is a popular time for various types of events. This spring you might even be hosting a baby shower, birthday party, wedding or other special event.  Signs wishing the guest of honor well at these types of events are very popular. However, getting signs can create a host of problems for you that can make party-planning even more difficult. Creating signs yourself using big letters from Printable Alphabets is a fast and easy way to make a sign that you know will look good, and that will get your message across.

Big letters, great designs – creating and printing your sign or banner

While you want to have a sign at your event, you don’t necessarily want that sign to be the focal point of the party. For example, if you’re hosting a baby shower for your sister, the focus should be on her and the new baby. A sign made with our big letters templates can be customized to your preferences. Our uppercase letters in black are a great choice if you want to make an impact with your sign, as well as get it finished quickly. They can be printed onto white or coloured paper.  If you’re feeling creative, and want to add a bit of decorative flair of your own to the sign, we have outlined or cut out letters. Paint or color the letters, print onto patterned paper, or you can get really artistic and add decorative effects like glitter, confetti, other papers – design options are unlimited! See our ideas gallery for more.

One of the great things about our big letters is that it puts you in complete control of your sign. You won’t have to worry about whether or not you’re happy with a professional printer’s interpretation of what you wanted. It’s our goal to make your sign-making process as easy as possible, while giving you options to make a great sign that will make the right statement for your next event.

Big number templates

Here’s another fabulous way to use big number templates that you may not have thought about. When the weather starts getting warmer, you’ll start to see those signs nailed to telephone poles and stuck into the ground on stakes advertising for yard sales. It’s just a matter of time, it’ll be yard sale season before you know it! Have you been thinking about that huge collection of stuff on your basement that you need to get rid of? Maybe you’ve been thinking about having your own yard sale, but just the thought of putting all that work into your old junk makes you feel tired.

Yard sales are a lot of hard work, but if you take a little time to do it the right way, they can also be very profitable for you, too. Putting on a successful yard sale is all about advertising, and at Printable Alphabets we have a great selection of big numbers that will help you get people’s attention at your next yard sale.

Big numbers make an easy to spot address

Most of the people who are going to come to your yard sale are people who saw your sign on the street while they were driving by. If you live on a side street, or on a country road that doesn’t see much traffic, having your address prominently printed on your signs is crucial.  Our big numbers and big letters are exactly what you need to ensure that there’s no mistake about where your yard sale is located. The numbers and letters are printed in large, solid black font that are easily seen, even from far away.

Use big letters and big numbers to organise your yard sale

One of the keys to having a successful yard sale is organization. People enjoy looking through sales that are put together well, and where items are clearly labeled. A great way to organize your sale is by using big numbers and big letters to differentiate between “departments”. A sale that has household items, furniture, clothes and toys all thrown in together can create chaos for those who stop to browse. They might not even find what they’re looking for, because they don’t want to take the time to look through everything. Separating your items and labelling the areas clearly will not only demonstrate that your sale is organized, but it’s a great way to attract attention from those who are driving by, too.

Planning a yard sale doesn’t have to be exhausting. In fact, if you do it right, it can be a lot of fun for you, and for your entire family. We’ve got a sign set “Yard Sale” template that you can use to incorporate for your street sign. Once you see the quality of our big letters, you’ll be eager to check out what other big numbers and big symbols you can find to make great signs for your sale. This year, don’t be one of those houses that throws together a sale at the last minute. Take some time to plan it right, and maximize the profit you make on your old junk.

Remember the old saying–“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!”

Letters of the alphabet

If you have ever tried printing big letters of the alphabet onto an A4 page, you will probably have discovered the task is quite fiddly to get the letters of the alphabet to fit the A4 page size neatly. Choosing the right sized type and style typeface for maximum impact visually ensures letters will be visually easy to read. Printing big letters of the alphabet can be achieved using a Word Processor such as Microsoft Word or using an online editor such as Google Docs.

Using Microsoft Word to print big letters of the alphabet

To get the letter to fit the page increase the  typeface (each typeface will vary in finished size) to around 600-800 pts. Adding  font weight  (normal, bold, italic) will change the size of the letter. Adjust the page margins down to suit your printer output – suggest approx 10mm/1cm/0.4″.

You might end up with a result like this ~

Print big letters

  • The blue highlighted area shows the actual page space this large character in Arial Narrow typeface at 840 pts with BOLD formatting.
  • Margins on the page were manually adjusted down to 10mm on all sides.
  • Adjusted line spacing also down to various heights from .5 to 1, but these had little impact on centering.


Letters of the Alphabet Templates

An alternative method to create the letters is to use a drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw! to create the letter on the page.  This give greater freedom to place the character in EXACTLY the center of the page.  Or find some templates online.
