MINNESOTA LETTERS
™
Minnesota Letters combine the attributes of several other
letter types. They are made from C.A.B. (Cellulose Acetate
Butyrate), a renewable resource (non-petroleum) plastic for incredible durability. They also are created using precision tooled
molds for razor sharp edges and extra dimension. While clearly
a plastic letter, they are suitable for many ‘‘up-close’’ applications – even in small sizes. Gemini has a stock of these letters
ready to paint to your specifications – so they will ship out generally within 1 business day.

LASER CUT ACRYLIC
Gemini starts with its own impact modified, extruded acrylic, in gauges
up to 1/2" thick in over 32 different colors. No where else can you find
colors through and through the entire letter. This assures no more unsightly scratches, chips, or blemishes that can occur over time in painted
finishes. Our 1000W lasers polish the edge returns of all letters and
logos as it cuts through the material, providing a superior finish for your
customer. Gemini’s acrylic products are designed for outdoor use, but
beautiful enough for any application where precision is required.
You can’t cut your own at these prices
Design flexibility to the extreme
• Gemini nests thousands of orders to assure minimal scrap
and lowest cost of acrylic.
• Our 3 shift operations can produce your order in 2-3 days with
all hardware and mounting patterns.
• Gemini re-extrudes trim not used to offer even lower prices
to get your order.

METAL LAMINATE ON ACRYLIC
Gemini Metal Laminate Acrylic Letters are just the ticket when the look
and feel of metal is needed but a budget doesn’t allow for it. Featuring an upscale look at a fraction of the cost, Gemini laminated acrylic
letters and logos are ideal for developing an elegant and professional
look for corporate lobbies, government offices and other organizations. Designed for indoor applications, these exquisite letters can also
be used in certain outdoor applications thanks to Gemini’s “edge seal”
process that greatly reduces deterioration and de-lamination caused by
exposure to nature and the elements. With seven metal laminates and
our full range of 32 acrylic colors available, you have more standard
options to choose from than you will find anywhere else.
Made from the Highest Quality Material
The Look of Metal Without the Cost
•
•
•
•
•
16
Made from materials that are lead and mercury free – No PVC (Poly
Vinyl Chloride) plastic.
Gemini recycles and extrudes all scrap material.
Excellent edge quality.
•
•
Laminate is REAL metal – a .025" layer of metal is affixed to each letter.
Letters are solid acrylic through and through – no flimsy foam or
hazardous PVC materials used.
Designed for interior but sturdy enough for outdoors.
Lightweight and easy to install.
Advantages of Metal Laminate Letters
Recommended for indoor use.
Indoor Letters that Are Tough Enough for Outside
• Unlike other metal-laminate letters made of foam and PVC,
Gemini Metal Laminate Acrylic Letters are made of components that do not deteriorate from exposure to the elements,
get chewed up by the unwanted attention of birds or squirrels, and hold up better to contact with pedestrian traffic.
• No unsightly denting due to Gemini’s backing material being made of impact modified acrylic.
• Edge returns look good at any distance due to the clean unporous acrylic used by Gemini.
• Letters look good up close and are visually striking from a
distance.
• Delamination is greatly reduced by the use of acrylic as a substrate, and through Gemini’s exclusive edge seal process.
Many Options To Choose From
•
•
•
•
•
Easy installation–durable lightweight letters can be
mounted with studs, pads or double-face tape.
Standard metal laminates include Brushed Brass,
Soft Satin Brass, Polished Brass, Brushed Aluminum,
Soft Satin Aluminum, Polished Aluminum and Satin
Brushed Gold.
By extruding our own acrylic, we can offer much
more variety than you will find anywhere else. We
have 32 standard pigmented colors available (page
14) in standard thicknesses ranging from 1/8" to 1/2".
Can be made to your custom fonts & designs.
Letters that are at least 3/8" thick can be drilled and
tapped for stud mounting. Thinner letters with hardware will have a pad/block glued to the back.

Cast letters and logos have always imparted a stately aura of permanence, style, and class on the sites they adorn. Perhaps this is because
the underlying casting process itself has changed so little for thousands
of years. It may also be because the casting process allows for the creation of the deepest, sturdiest, most beautiful metal letters and logos.
No matter the reason, Gemini is the only one to use for cast signage.
Gemini has devoted 50,000 square feet to the storage of our CNC cut,
hand-finished patterns in over 50 of the most common letterstyles. Our
all-electric, pollution-free furnaces in Texas, Iowa, and Minnesota melt
the virgin bronze and aluminum ingot used in the process. Our handfinished product is produced for you in about 8 days – often for less than
what you would expect to pay for such quality.
Over 50 standard styles and more economical than sheet cut aluminum or
bronze products.
The depth in cast letters is unmatched
Custom logos are available at minimal expense–especially with repeat
orders or duplicate pieces
Our hand finished letters come in 16 different finishes including polished,
anodized, or oxidized
Where to Use Gemini Cast
•
•
•
•
When depth is required in letterstyle and/or logo
On professional offices, universities and government buildings
When flat cut-out is too expensive
When needing a sense of permanency

FINISH NOTES: All Patinas, by their very nature, will vary from letter to letter
and order to order. These finishes will change in appearance over time depending on contact with moisture and temperature. Patinas can “bleed” onto the
installation surface when installed outside. The only exception is the Nouveau
Patina, which is a powder-coated, simulated Patina finish on an aluminum
letter.

WATERJET METAL
Waterjet cut letters offer the combination of the precision available in a
CNC controlled 70,000 psi cutting head and the durability and distinction
of pure metal. Gemini’s 5 locations across the U.S. and Canada can take
your .EPS, .CDR, or other vector-based art file and use it to carve out a design from cold rolled sheets of aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, or even
stainless steel. Once cut, your order is less than half-way through the
process–your order will be hand-finished to your specification: whether
polished, anodized, or even powder coated. Gemini waterjet cut letters
are all durable enough for outdoors, yet perfect enough for any boardroom application.

ETCHED PLAQUES
Gemini’s etched plaques are made from virgin sheet stock that is always
lead & mercury free. The chemical etching process allows us to reproduce even the most complex artwork onto the surface of the metal.
Used in combination with Gemini’s cast and architectural plaque lines
– etched medallions and emblems provide the precision needed to accentuate the perfect plaque or marker. Gemini can etch Brass, Bronze,
Copper and Stainless Steel in varying gauges and dimensions – and like
Gemini’s architectural plaques, 8 day production is standard on etched
plaque orders.
32
ADA Metal Plaques
Gemini ADA directional signage offers beauty, style and compliance. Available in the standard 6" x 8" x .25" with a stipple or sand background, or in your own custom
design.
Don’t let ADA signage requirements be an eyesore – order solid aluminum, bronze & brass ADA compliant plaques from Gemini. Unlike other ADA compliant products
– Gemini’s patent pending process does not use loose beads for the braille component; or rely on imperfect, non-compliant castings. Like our plaques – they are perfect
every time.
Custom ADA Plaques
In addition, Gemini can provide customization in both color & design to allow you to make
your ADA signage work with your location, not stick out from it.
