Given the length, how can I compute the heights in cm for logo text typed in Microsoft Word?

+0
−4

Pls see screenshot below. The contractor and I decided L. For the logo at side of shopfront, L = 140 cm. But don't just assume 140 cm, because I'm planning to emblazon tack another logo at top, and L varies for different logos.

Contractor requested me email him the numbers for A, B, C in cm. How do I calculate A, B, C in cm? I don't know how to do this in Adobe Illustrator, that I have.

I know 1 DeskTop Publishing point = 0.3528 mm. But I can't just multiply point by 0.3528 mm, because this doesn't account for L. For example, A isn't 60 pt x 0.3528 mm = 21.168 mm! This is too teeny for a shopfront sign!
