    I have a question for those who have experience in this area. Is there much of a difference if any in "Slimbrite" and "Resno" letters or are they the same just different trade names?

    Hello blufftonsignguy, they are similar but I don't think the same people make them. We have use the Resno letters before they are nice. They are imported so lead time is always an issue. I think they are 4-5 weeks. Steel art also make them or you can try making them yourself. We have made a few in our show as well. You can use Bitro white acrylic and use their bendable led tape.

    Thank you. I have called Bitro and also another company that makes these types of letters. It does seem it depends on who/what company you talk to as to what they call them.

    Colite int. makes some nice ones. I believe they are mfg in Germany. Here is one we just recently installed.

    Thank you for the pictures. I have called them also and waiting on a price. Bitro to me seemed a bit high, but I don't have much experience with this type of letters either.

    You have to make sure they are UL, if that matters to you and warranty, but yes they are expensive. You will be seen more of them in malls and higher end stores.
