Flat Cut Out (FCO) is creating a shape by cutting out from, especially flat substrates. FCO letters are the mainstay of the architecture sign industry. Letters for signs are cut from many substrates like aluminum, stainless steel, bronze, acrylic, polycarbonate, Di-Bond, Lexan, Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), and others.

FCO shapes are crafted into lit and unlit signs and plaques that are unique to their owner’s brand requirements.

Material is cut by a variety of methods ranging from hand tools to CNC routers, waterjets, and lasers.

FCO cut signage is stylish enough for the boardroom but tough enough for exterior signs.
