Spoon Graphics Readers may recognise this marquee sign effect from my video tutorial last week. I mentioned in the video that I would be working on a full collection of characters to share with my readers for free. After many hours of rendering the 3D artwork, I now have a set of A-Z characters, 10 numbers and 4 glyphs to form a complete pack. Each one is based on the vintage bulb letter sign style and features realistic lighting and textures. They come as individual PNG files with transparent backgrounds, or compiled within a layered PSD so you can quickly add broadway style type to your own designs.

Free Pack of Vintage Style Marquee Bulb Sign Letters

This free pack of vintage style marquee bulb sign letters contains a total of 40 characters that you can arrange and compose to form any word or phrase you might want to display in lights within your designs. Each 3D model features a rusty metal material, realistic shading and illuminated bulbs with a transparent background. Find all the characters in the layered PSD file to easily drag-and-drop them into your artwork, or use the individual PNG files for all other design software.
