Default routing vertical words

My son is doing an Eagle Scout project that involves replacing vandalized trail signs. We'd like to route names (like "Robin Road") vertically in composite wood, and bolt them to existing steel posts. My father has offered his assistance, but can not find any vertical letters for his Craftsman jig. Do they exist?

We have 19 signs to make, and a sign shop wants $50-60 each. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi kschatten:

Eagle Scout, that's teenager isn't it? We don't have Eagle Scouts here.

Print out your signs from a computer in your preferred font. Then freehand the signs. As a teenager, this is a perfect time for him to learn about routers and a usable skill that will serve him well the rest of his life. There is a sub-forum here on sign making. Talk to the guys/gals there.
