I found something interesting at Michael's (craft store) recently. It's a box of fancy brads, each one with a letter of the alphabet. Upper and lower case are both included. I think these could be useful for making signs on buildings, even in the smaller scales. You'd have to cut off the tabs on the back of the letters.

Nice find Ray! One way to use them:
Paint your sign white for example. Lay the letters in position and lightly spray with a darker colour.
Lift off the letters revealing the original colour for the letters.
