Display letters

Discussion in 'Primary' started by shoesies, Aug 25, 2010.

  1. Hi,
    I have got to that point where I am sticking my displays up and I am stuck with the lettering.
    Having moved to a new school I have found they don't have any stencil letters (shock horror!), I still would like to cut out letters individually for displays rather that have full pieces of paper up.
    Does anyone know any good styles or sites where I could get letters from to cut out and laminate for the displays (10 display boards this year... a whole lot of lettering!!)

    Thanks

  2. I've been printing out the lettering I want, in the font I want on work. If you choose the outline function then you don't waste a lot of ink. I cut out the computer lettering then cut it out of the colour I want (if I haven't already printed it on the colour I wanted)
    My school does have wooden letters, but I find this much better as I have many styles to choose from. The only downside is that it can be wasteful of paper, so I try and get all the letters I need on a4 sheets, then enlarge them to a3 if I want them larger.
     
  3. I just use powerpoint and word art, then enlarge it, format the wordart and change the background colour (you can use a pattern or a picture as the letter filling too which is nice sometimes) and resize them. Can be tricky to make them all the same size when using lots of different pages though.
    I then cut these out, laminate and bang up. Depends how quick you are with PPT though, i find it much quicker than cutting out etc.

    I use instant display mainly for my lettering. But I've only just discovered treasurechest and they are fab as well.
