Brushed lettering always looks good.
We created these stainless steel letters for Washington Gas offices in Southeast Washington, DC. The letters are pin mounted to a track which is bolted to the steel awning. The best finish for outdoor metal letters is always a horizontal brush. The brushed look tends to age well. It will not show the weathering that can be moved apparently on a polished letter. Even if you request polished letters for exterior use, we will not offer that product to you. We stand behind all of our work, and we cannot in good conscience sell something to you which might fail prematurely.
