A little history of our unique product
Many people remember the white plastic letters against blue velvet plate on the mail inlets in our apartment buildings. This unique product was patented as early as 1927 by the Swede Valfrid Bergström.Originally, the white plastic letters were made in the Futura typeface, a typeface created by Paul Renner just a few months before Bergström began marketing his unique product.
Later, fonts were changed to a more clipped block style that took up less space on the blue velvet tiles. There is currently no exact font corresponding to the plastic letters, but Helvetica is quite close. The product came to revolutionize the graphic design in public environments. Stockholm Central Station had a huge train timetable assembled with thousands of white and coloured numbers and letters. Södersjukhuset, Folksam and Asea are others.
Today, the system is developed and the blue velvet plate is replaced by colored and groove-milled rubber sheets. The rubber sheet is much better suited than the velvet covered surface in environments where there are high demands on durability. In addition, unlike velvet, the rubber surface is easy to wipe off if it should become dirty. The system is currently used mostly in restaurants and bars but also in trendy fashion stores, office environments and likewise interior design stores. In the 1950s, you could see the characteristic white plastic letters everywhere. In restaurants, snack bars, hairdressers and grocery stores. The product was exported all over Europe and also to Canada.The system is flexible with very wide possibilities to create your own interior design and finally gets its unique look thanks to the wide range of plastic letters.
P3N is Sweden’s largest supplier of the system and stocks plastic letters in sizes 9, 13, 19 and 35mm.
As of 2023, we are also the owner of the mold into which the sheets are cast, and have our own right to the recipe for the manufacture of the rubber boiler.
