Frequently Asked Questions:

Why are the letters in ALL CAPS?

This helps ensure that the entire letter stays on the baseplate. Even then, it is not always possible.

How many LEGO® bricks does it take to make a name?

If you were to break it down by letter. On AVERAGE, each letter requires between 40-70 pieces.

So using this calculation, a 6 letter name would require around 330 LEGO® bricks.

October 2013: We have added a new feature that automatically estimates the number of LEGO® bricks each name will require.

How do I connect all of the Baseplates together after I have made all of them?

While this step is not included in the instructions, it can be easily done with the basic 2x4 plate pieces.

Theese pieces are available in both Tan: Tan 2x4 Plate and Green: Greeen 2x4 Plate and are included with a Complete Kit purchase!

What are the dimensions of my name going to be?

The LEGO® baseplates used as a background are almost exactly 10 inches square.

So your name will be 10 inches tall, by how ever many baseplates (times 10) are used as a background.

Why aren't more colors available to choose from?

Currently we only have the easily obtainable LEGO® brick colors available to choose from.
