Having worked at a sign company for a number of years, I'm quite familiar with the letters used on theatre marquee signs. They're typically made from clear plastic, and they often have nubs on the bottom to reduce friction and help them slide along the tracks on the sign. The plastic panels come in a few set widths, so I did the same, setting up three panel widths. The two classic marquee lettering styles are a square industrial-looking sans-serif and a more curved humanist sans. I went with the latter, and only made small optical corrections, which brings out the signpainter style that marquee letters are known for.
