Rated 4 out of 5 by Oriolezgurl Nice addition!
I read the other reviews before purchasing and was a little concerned, but I ordered this and really love it. I bought the black "R" and it looks great among my framed photos in my family room. It's reasonably priced and very attractive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MamaJama Waaaaaaay over priced.
These letters small and large are most likely produced for a few cents. Not well described in the catalog or may have not ordered. Poor workmanship also.

I have these letters all over my home! In my kitchen EAT.... In my office TO DO and a W for our last name on our living room in our wall gallery! Makes the perfect statement for your walls and there are so many possibilities!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Houselover Great decorative piece
I bought one for me and 2 as gifts. I have mine on a shelf leaning against a wall. Think of your back ground color, I bought the black but it didn't show well in a dark wood book shelf.
I love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jeezaloo Dimensions were just wrong!
I wanted to order the "W" months ago but was confused because the shape of the letter in the photo and the shape in the "available options" were different. I asked customer support and they told me the diagram in "available options" was the correct one. I didn't order.
Later I got another catalog, with another photo and I asked again. This time they told me the photo was the correct one! I also asked for the exact dimensions and got no answer. But these are supposed to be 12" letters, and the widest is supposed to be 11 3/4". So I ordered the "W" figuring that was the size.
When it came, it was 11 1/2" tall (close enough) and 13 3/4" wide! Nearly 2 inches wider than the spec said! It didn't fit in the space I had planned and I had to put it somewhere else. The letter is nice, and does look like the photo, but dealing with Ballard on this wasn't worth it.

I bought a gold 'T' in the smaller size for our last name when we moved into a new house and I absolutely love it in the bookcase. I've been giving them as housewarming gifts to all my friends since getting mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RBMA Love the product, but letter size varies.
I purchased the letters to spell out SUMMER. I love the look, but the letter S is slightly smaller than the other letters. I have the letters over my mantel and it is very obvious that the letter S is not the same size as the others. i know the letter size varies, but I thought the overall height of each letter would be the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nmygarden Wall letters are well made
The small type-setter letters are well made and a perfect size to serve as a wall accent. I noted that earlier comments mentioned inconsistent spacing in the holes for hanging in the back of each letter which made even hanging difficult. This problem must have been corrected because the holes for hanging in each of my letters were equidistant from the top of the letters, making it simple to place the letters evenly for hanging.

I ordered the smaller size of the black typesetter plaque. I was very happy with the appearance, structure, and size of the product. I did have a slight issue with the uneven location of the cut-outs for hanging (on letter M). However, this was easily rectified.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anony8 Great addition to photo wall!
I bought the small typesetter plaque in antique bronze as an accent piece to a photo wall going up the stairwell in my home. To my delight, it completed the wall perfectly! The plaque is very lightweight and was extremely easy to hang.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catfan Great for individualized decor.
The typesetter letters did not match in color or weight some I had previously purchased from Ballard Design. I ended up spray painting both the new and old so they would match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newbride A Nice Finishing Touch
I have a large gold sunburst mirror in our study, so I was looking for a few gold accessories to tie everything together. I was thrilled to find these small typesetter plaques and ordered three of them - my husband's and my first initials and an ampersand. They're a nice size and well made, and they really pull the room together and add a personalized touch. I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend them for adding a nice finishing touch to any room.

I was looking for something personal and different for a space above the master bedroom door and this was perfect! It won't stand, it has to hang but it turned out to be exactly what I was looking for! I am considering using more letters for a different room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smadacats Theses are a beautiful addition to my wine bar!
Nice quality wall hangings. My only complaint is that the keyhole hangers were not placed level with the words on the front! I put 2 nice holes with drywall anchors in my wall and made sure they were perfectly level and hung my wine barrel ends. Very crooked!! Check first before you hang them, otherwise they are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sosouthern Perfect for simple wall accent or to lean on a mantle
I love these letters, I have the large and small. Both are light enough to hang with velcro wall hangers which makes for easy hanging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nickname1 Hanging Holes Misaligned
The letters themselves are fine. However, the mounting holes are not level on each letter. For example I ordered the letter K. The holes should have been level - directly across from each other on the main line of the K and the upperward line, but they weren't and it made it very difficult to get the letter level. It was the same way on the letter R. All 4 holes are at different heights. A real pain in the neck to hang. Very poor design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoNut1 Classy and a great fit!
I bought two of the fleurs de lis in black to put on either side of a framed print that wasn't quite large enough to fill the space it is in. These provide the extra width needed, work well with the print, and look really good in themselves. They were easy to hang and lightweight yet have a substantial look. I could see myself possibly ordering other letters/characters in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dayna I love these letters!
We have one letter for each of my family members' names on our entry way wall. We are expecting our second child so I bought one for her as well. Being a teacher, I've always enjoyed letters and love seeing the dark letters on our cappucino-colored wall.

Like a previous review I have an open space above our flat screen tv. I have been searching for over a year for something to fill in the space. I bought a large letter and 2 small in my family monogram. They look wonderful and fill the space perfectly.

Like all my Ballard purchases, this product is top notch! I purchased the small "&" in bronze and took a tip from the Ballard catalog and mounted it in a picture frame with a beige linen backing WOW! Altho' listed as small, it is a very good size and quite thick but light weight which I appreciate.

I ordered the small "D" in the antique bronze. It is very lightweight, making it easy to hang anywhere, yet looks expensive. I took the idea from the Ballard catalog and used an open frame to frame it. Love it!
