Large Wooden Letters

Hello All,

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Has anyone seen large wooden letters around town (Basel) or in Germany (Weil am Rhein/Lörrach)?

Thanks!
Dana

Re: Large Wooden Letters

Boesner has hard cardboard letters of many sizes, if it's for an indoor project.

Re: Large Wooden Letters

I must admit that the postman's sack did look particularly heavy this morning.

Re: Large Wooden Letters

Why? Are you missing some? I'd check the river but I bet they're pretty far downriver by now.

Re: Large Wooden Letters

Depot has these in Zurich. Theres's also an on-line store. Here an example, but also saw some others in white wood:

Re: Large Wooden Letters

Here's what you're looking for, OP - the alphabet in wooden letters!

From what I see after rooting through the whole deco page, they only have "home". "work" and the & sign for sale, but not the entire alphabet. Entering "buchstabe" in the search field only yields 2 results, both a version of "home" in wood.

IIRC Migros (large Migros with a do-it section) has cardboard (again, not wood) letters, but not entirely sure if it wasn't somewhere else I saw them.

Saw that too. In our local store in Zürich, there are many letters of the alphabet on the shelves. Not sure about over there.

Haven't been to Züri's Depot lately, do they have the whole alphabet in metal (like the "&" on the website) or only in wood?
