Acrylic Standoffs, advice needed please?

How do standoffs that are blind, attach to the acrylic letters? I can only find ones where you drill the material.

Where can I get the blind ones

Signgeer sell plastic standoffs for cut letters that you glue the male to the back of the letter, and the female cup is screwed to the wall? Is that what you are looking for? These are the only ones i know of that dont screw into the back of the letter?

All the best

ahh right you mean just standard plastic locator fixings?

you will get them from most suppliers, Amari, Grafityp, Robert Horne etc
the ones Dan is showing are manufactured by snap-fix which can also be sourced via several suppliers.

when you said drilled, i thought you meant drilled into the backing board, not letter itself. i don't recall any locator that is drilled through the face of the letter. they are normally glued or soldered.

Robert, think the poster was referring to the type of stand offs used for acrylic panels where there is a hole drilled through the panel
