  1. SHOPPING CART LINK DAILY DELIVERY FOR SAN DIEGO 3/4" ($46.75) & 1" ($54.75) + Shipping Colors are below * Black * White * Gold * Silver (Brushed Silver Appearance) * Bronze * Duranotic Bronze * Orange * Red ( 3M Poppy Red 3630-143 | Pantone 179 C ) * Blue ( 3M Intense Blue 3630-127 | Pantone 300 C ) * Dark Blue (Avery Dark Blue 8500-007) * Yellow ( 3M Sunflower 3630-25 | Pantone 124 C ) * Green ( Oracal Emerald Green 8800-087 | Pantone 348 C ) Some notes I'd like to add about this product. Some may have used this product in the past and some may have never had a chance. This product disappeared from suppliers right after 9/11 from what I understand there were Customs issues that made it too costly to bring in. IF you remember this product from long ago, you will be glad it's back (just like the reaction I've gotten to all who have purchased from me). IF you have never used it, your fabricators will love you for using it, it's MUCH MUCH easier to work with and notch, you won't get those splits you sometimes get on corners. My other understanding is that this product was mainly distributed on the west coast, so not many on the east coast have ever tried it. My advice is try it, believe me YOU will LOVE it! Before 9/11 I used PLASCO and the Silvatrim Trimcaps. I still have signs up 16+ years and this trim cap is still up, it's very durable. PLASCO Trim for Polycarbonate Channel Letter Faces Plasco is an excellent channel letter trim cap to be used to fabricated polycarbonate / Lexan channel letter faces. We also stock Channel Bond, the 1 part system which makes it easy for bonding Plasco Trim to Polycarbonate. You can also find Channel Bond here PLASCO VS JEWELITE In another thread I was asking why anyone east of Colorado "WHY" they mainly buy 1" Jewlite and not 3/4" Jewelite for 24" Channel Letters and smaller. The reason seems to be is that when you use 1" Jewelite with a standard 3/16" channel letter face the 1" Jewelite gives you more clearance because the arrow extrusion protrudes more than 1/4" from the face giving you less mechanical fastening room. Make sense but 1" is very tough to notch, bend and get in small letter centers too because of that arrow extrusion. I was always use to Plasco Trim Cap in my years of the sign industry, NOT Jewelite because on the West Coast Plasco was stocked more than Jewelite before 9/11. So after this "clearance" point was brought up I did some quick measuring because I had a east coast client buy Plasco 1" to match up with his regular use of 1" Jewelite. Then shortly after receiving his order with 3/4" samples he soon after starting ordering 3/4". I asked him why the change in smaller trim. He said the change was because the 3/4" Plasco trim gave him the same fastening clearance that he got buying 1" Jewelite. He went from paying about $70.00 per roll to $44.75 saving $32.15 (15' more added in), AND he got 15 more feet of trim per roll. I've attached some images to show you that you can use 3/4" Plasco Trim Cap that will give you the same clearance as 1" Jewelite IF clearance is important to you. Plasco vs. Jewelite - Here we display the channel letter baseline along with the clearance you get using 3/4" & 1" Plasco / Jewelite Trim Caps 1" Jewelite clearance 1" Plasco - More mechanical clearance than 1" Jewelite 3/4" Plasco - Just about the same mechanical clearance as using 1" Jewelite 3/4" Jewelite - Less mechanical clearance than 3/4" Plasco 1" Jewelite - Arrow extrusion protrusion more than 1/4" past the channel letter face. U.L. Sign Accessories Manual Info Plasco is a Elkamet product made in Germany and their U.L. file number is E10010 ELKAMET KUNSTSTOFFTECHNIK GMBH GEORG-KRAMER STRASSE 3 PO BOX 1263 35216 BIEDENKOPF FED REP GERMANY Aluminum reinforced sign face trim, Type Elkamet Profiles. E100102 1. These trim materials are used to secure a rigid thermoplastic sign face to an outdoor or indoor sign. 2. The ability of the trim to exclude water from contacting live parts needs to be evaluated in the end product. 3. Minimum No. 8 sheet metal screws need to be provided for securing the trim to the sign body. The maximum spacing between screws shall not exceed 18 in. and no fewer than four screws are to be used per face. 4. These products do not comply with enclosure requirements. 5.

  2. What's just as good if not better than our Channel Letter trim Cap? Our fresh batch of Syndicate Bootleg Brewing "K-Liscious Summer Sunset Ale", that's what! It goes perfect with Trim Capping, it gives your finger tips a cool buzz feeling while saving the taste of hoppy goodness! By the way, I STILL don't get why most of you buy 1" Jewelite or 1" Plasco trim Cap for your average size letters. 3/4" PLASCO has the same mechanical clearance as 1" Jewelite, and again MUCH easier to work with without having to worry about bending that Jewelite arrow trim around tight corners and bends for small letter faces. Check this out, see.....same mechanical clearance! So why spend the extra money on 1" Jewelite???

    Trimless Letters

    I wanted to initiate some conversation regarding Trimless channel letters which are becoming more common every year. Adams Tech introduced a new patented coil named LetterForm at ISA Sign Expo 2016. We were actually presented with an ISA Innovation Award for this new coil. I've been working closely with many of our customers and the feedback has been tremendous. A number of major players are pitching Trimless letters to their national accounts with success. Just wondering if many of you are seeing more jobs come in specifying rimless letters? http://www.channelbender.com/trimless/letterform-2/
  4. To update everyone of our new stock and colors we now have a darker blue which matches pretty well with Avery's Dark Blue Translucent 8500 Vinyl series 007. We also have a real Duranotic Bronze to match most coated pre-fab Aluminum coils. Finally we have an Orange. These can be ordered from our store http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/10-trim-cap-plastic-adhesives/ Or call in 858.880.1400

    Plasco trim

    Hello Just reporting back on the plasco trim i purchased. The stuff is great i had absolutely no troubles with it. I had lots of sharp truns and bends and it formed with ease and no cracking at all. Thanks again for letting me join up !! Have a great day!!
  8. I don't understand it. For myself and when it comes to standard channel letters 24" and smaller I usually would have used 3/4" Trim Cap. This seems to be the consensus on the west coast because I stock primarily 3/4" for most shops on the west coast who call to order. Yet, sign shops say...east of Colorado typically us and call to order 1" for everything 24" and under. Geographical?
