If you are looking to hire giant letters or giant numbers in Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian or West Lothian, Platinum Discos can help.
We have the biggest selection of giant letters and giant numbers for hire in Scotland and we are 100% reliable! We offer a fast, friendly, efficient service from The Borders to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the central belt all the way up to Perth and Dundee. We can deliver further afield at additional cost. Usually if we supply giant letters or numbers to places further away like Aberdeen, Inverness, Oban etc it is with one of our other larger products like a disco, dance floor, magic mirror or Photobooth. This allows us to keep the delivery cost down and give you an amazing package deal price!
Here is our most popular package deal which includes up to 7 giant letters or numbers, but if you needed a few more that wouldn’t be a problem.
As you can see from the poster above, up to 7 giant letters or numbers are included in this package. We chose 7 characters so you could have “LOVE” and your initials like “A&D” for example. You can also have “MR & MRS” in white or rustic styles too.
Here is an example of Mr & Mrs in rustic style and below it in white with fairy lights.
Our giant letters that we hire come in white or rustic style and we give you two choices of light bulbs: Cabochon (fairground type) or small Led (Christmas tree lights) Some of our giant letters and giant numbers are mains powered and some are battery powered.
Here is an example of our giant letters that we use a lot at barn weddings. These are rustic style with cabochon lamps. They are mains powered and the lamps are 24v for safety.
Something new for 2022 that is proving to be extremely popular are our 1ft tall Mr & Mrs letters deigned to be placed on top of your surname. This photo was taken at Kinkell Byre near St Andrews for a barn wedding.
The battery powered giant letters and giant numbers that we hire are white and use cool white LED’s. The advantages of battery power are numerous! Quick to set up, not overpoweringly bright, can be moved easily, electrically far safer, and they look amazing!
I have provided my giant letter hire at lots of venues in Edinburgh like the Sheraton Hotel, the George Hotel and the Kimpton Hotel. I’ve also provided giant number hire at various Edinburgh venues like Le monde on George Street and Tiger Lily to corporate Headquarters of companies like business Stream, various high street banks and to lots of domestic homes, church halls etc. Wherever you are having a party in Edinburgh or the central belt we can supply our giant letters and numbers. What started off as a small add on extra at discos with my first set of “LOVE” letters quickly became a business in its own right. I now have hundreds of giant letters and numbers you can hire and we continue to buy more as our business grows.
Recently I’ve also bought a metal heart arch with flowers and lights to add to our existing 7ft wooden heart arch which is incredibly popular. You can have your cake underneath it for those all important wedding photos and you can stand in front of it too for even more photos. You’ll find all your guests posing in front of it too!
Here are photos of both arches.
The photo below is of our prom giant letters which we hire out often in the summer as the schools and universities break up and all the students celebrate.
Whatever you are celebrating whether is a birthday or a christening, a naming ceremony, an engagement or a wedding we have giant letters we can hire you and giant numbers we can hire you or a combination of both. We also have some other symbols like #, &, ?, ! and @ that we can include with your light up letter or number hire. Anything we don’t have we can get made quickly.
The most popular giant numbers we hire are 18, 21 and 40 and we have several sets of these so we are never out of stock of them. So we won’t ever phone you up and cancel your light up number booking as we are over booked. When we become over booked we either order more or make them ourselves depending on how much time we have before your event.
The most popular giant letters we hire are primarily for weddings. So “LOVE” and “MR & MRS” are the two favourites by far. But we frequently get asked for your initials with the “&” symbol in between.
I’ve also hired out giant letters that say “MARRY ME ? ” on two occasions. The last occasion was at The Grey Mare’s Tail in the borders and was outside! Luckily the weather was good and I particularly enjoyed doing this one. Here is a photo of it:
I remember standing in the middle of a stream to get a good photo of the happy couple with the waterfall behind them. A really satisfying job to do and it reminded me why I love to do my job.
I’ve also done lots of corporate events where giant letters hire has been required. Here is a photo of one at Amazon in Dunfermline.
There are lots of examples of giant letters and numbers that I’ve hired over the years on my Facebook page: https://facebook.com/PlatinumDiscos2018

Giant letter/number hire pricing
At Platinum Discos our giant letter hire and giant number hire prices are very competitive!
The first letter or number is £50, all subsequent characters are £10 each. So “LOVE” for example is £50 plus 3 extra letters at £10 making £80 total including delivery.
If your delivery address is within West Lothian delivery is free as we are based in Bathgate. If you are within the central belt and within an hours drive of Bathgate the delivery fee is £20.

Our giant letters are always provided in very good condition. We regularly re paint them when they get scratched or chipped and all the LED’s will be working. We test them before every hire!
They will arrive clean and looking pristine! We regularly get told that our giant letters and giant numbers are the best our customers have ever seen!
Our review pages on Facebook and on our website and on comparison sites that we are members of are full of five star reviews! We run our business in an ethical way and support various charities throughout the world.
Battery life on our battery-powered giant letters and giant numbers that we hire is extremely good. At least 24 hours is typical. If you want to hire our light up letters or numbers for a long period of time we will give you spare batteries and chargers so you have enough batteries to do your entire hire with ease.
We are often asked how long you get our giant letters or giant numbers for. Usually we deliver either the day before your light up letter hire or number hire or in the morning or at a time that you’ve specified. We usually collect the day after your hire, but we don’t mind leaving them for a few extra days either free or at a nominal extra cost. This is particularly good for birthday parties at home, where your actual birthday is one day and your party maybe a day or two before or after at the weekend. We always try to be as flexible and helpful as possible and want you to get full use of the giant letters or giant numbers that you’ve hired.
If your giant letter or giant number hire is at a venue, we will liaise with them for delivery and collection and would ask you to put their details on the booking form so we can contact them easily.
