New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for a kind of do-it-yourself lettering signage system that used to be all over the place, in the UK at least, for house names and numbers particularly.
Each letter was printed on its own brushed gold, or sometimes silver coloured self adhesive aluminium plate. What made it distinctive was that the lettering was always sloped, and so each plate was too -- a parallelogram.
I know a picture would make this easier but I can't find one!
I've had a good look around on the web and in local hardware stores but I don't think I've seen it on sale for at least 5 years.
Any ideas on the tradename/manufacturer/sources?
