You have excellent taste! These were my favorites too. And the Xi problem (although making me laugh from the phrasing) does make the letters more of a challenge. But again I ask, what are these made of? ESPECIALLY the A Chi O letters. They look like they're styrofoam, but so professional looking. I notice in some pictures the girls are holding their letters up with one hand, so not wood. I'm perplexed and it makes my head hurt!...

The ones at Ole Miss (for the most part) are wood. AOII at Ole Miss also has a smaller set of letters that are made of thick foam board. I would imagine the key to making the letters look so good is someone that can use a skill saw. (I think that is the proper term for that type of tool.)

I can imagine some letters are easier than others but the Xi is probably the hardest to make! I love the Alpha Xi Delta bubble letters too!

Loving this thread! My school didn't use letters like this, we were totally missing out.

It's really interesting seeing how different groups tackle letters, like the Xi issue! My favorite so far: The purple ΣΣΣ with green flowers, the XΩ owl- that is so cute! (but makes me feel like the X needs something extra), and the black & white ΠBΦ. I also like the Delta Zeta ones for their simplicity & having the Delta Zeta written out in the scrolly lettering on each.

DubaiSis... do you think you could add a line break between your pictures to make the page width go back to normal?

The XΩ owl letter is one of the most creative things I've seen. Very admirable! I wish my school had this tradition as well. They make for great photos!

Hee hee...you know what I meant, but I guess it doesn't sound so positive!

I wish I had a picture of the foam letters I made for our windows in the dorm when I was a collegian. I wouldn't recommend using them for this purpose (Bid Day) since a stiff wind would crack them in half. They were really cute, though, since I made them with a panda bear over each letter. The pandas were holding hearts, and each one was different. The letters were massive and completely filled the windows of our dorm rooms, so the entire bottom floor of the sorority dorm screamed "AOII!" Of course, we later found out that the foam (used as building insulation) was flammable...oops!

I was going to point out some faves, but we're only on page 2 and I already absolutely love half of them, lol

And what a nice surprise to see some chapter sisters as I was scrolling through

This thread is very cool. Some of them are painted SOOOOO elaborately. Very professional. Never had these at my school, but would have been very fun! The most we ever did was poster-board letters for our dorm windows. Yeah- not all that creative, and besides, they were so faded by the end of the year, that they were trashed immediately!

They're all so beautiful! I keep coming back to the black and white Pi Beta Phi letters - classic!

Do my eyes deceive me, or are those light up letters?

Found these on FB from MTSU. I've never seen lowercase AOII letters.
