Gorgeous script font of the word “family”! It is 17.5″ Wide by 8″ Tall by 1/8″ Thick Steel! Open a custom request or start up a conversation if you would like this in a different size and we can scale and quote it. We listed this with one size, but we can adjust to fit any spot or need you have.
Why do we use 1/8″ thick steel for our art? Because the thickness matters! We realize it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
We use 1/8″ because it makes a strong beautiful piece of metal art that will stand up to pretty much anything without bending and the thickness makes it look and few substantial due to its depth. It’s the standard we use on our signs and is a lot more than those we see out there. But if it’s still not enough, let us know and we can make it out of 1/4″ steel, which is twice as thick as our 1/8″ (five times thicker than 18 gauge). It would be thicker than two quarters and two dimes, all four stacked on top of each other, and is called 3 gauge!!! Just let us know!
If you are in Hawaii or Alaska, please send us a message before ordering anything other than the small size. We are subsidizing the shipping cost already and we are not sure if we have to charge extra to serve our far-away States. If you are interested however, strike up a conversation with us and we will see what we can figure out for you.
