Sign Making : Mounting Brackets for Sign Making


Okay, now we’re going to get ready to mount
our brackets on our wood. So you’re going to take your piece of wood like I have here
and you’re going to want to flip it over to your back side. Now these I’ve got the brackets
pre-mounted for you. We’re going to do, is you want some that are going to have teeth
on them and you’re going to want to allow a good space, less than a quarter of an inch
so that you can slide your ribbon through later for hanging. Now make sure that you
place your brackets, you can either go long ways and you’re going to place them at the
top or like I’ve done, lengthwise, I’ve mounted brackets here as well. So whichever way you’re
going to lay your sign and you want it to hang you’re going to want those even spaced
apart. What you’re going to do is you’re going to take your brackets like I have here, we’re
going to place a small bit of glue, and I need to glue the outsides of these still,
so you’re going to take your glue gun and on each side along the edge you’re going to
place a small amount of glue and lay the bracket inside. And then we’re going to go again on
the outside. You’re going to hold that in place. Once you let it dry you’re going to
hold it still for about ten seconds. Let that glue harden and stiffen up. Then you can go
along the outsides around the edges as well. So we’re going to hold that one for a few
seconds, let that glue start to cool. Then we’re going to come over here and do the same
on the outside of this bracket. And again on the outside here. And because I’ve done
brackets on both sides we’re going to go ahead and just affix these on the outsides here
at the top. And again on the outsides here. And just before you flip that wood over to
start, again, this glue dries really quick so you just want to give it about ten seconds
if you’re using hot glue. If you’re using an epoxy you’re going to want to give it about
a minute or two, or an Elmer’s glue, to let that really harden up. And then once you’ve
let that dry for about ten seconds like I said, if you’re using a hot glue gun, we’re
ready to start over and move on.
